IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL PARISHIONERS OF ASSUMPTION PARISH
At the conclusion of the Masses on Sunday, November 11, 2018, Assumption Church will close for a period of at least six weeks so that we can address a serious maintenance issue concerning the stunning stained-glass window “The Assumption of Mary” above the altar in the sanctuary. Several months ago, a severe wind storm caused this window to shift dramatically. If the issue is not addressed immediately the window could be further damaged and may not be repairable. Father Gildardo has been working diligently with both our insurance company and a couple of contractors to try to figure out how to best address this problem.
It has been decided that all of the stained-glass will be removed and placed in storage. The window frame will undergo extensive repairs and new clear plastic exterior windows installed. For a variety of very good reasons, insurance company policy requires that the stained-glass not be reinstalled for a period of two years. As a result, for at least the next 24 months the window will be clear.
Beginning on Monday, November 12, all regularly scheduled Masses and other services normally held in Assumption Church will be moved to Saint Anthony’s. This will also include any scheduled weddings or funerals. In addition, the 10:30 A.M. Sunday Mass at Saint Anthony’s, which is ordinarily bi-lingual, will be Spanish only during this period. Due to the fact that Saint Anthony’s is a much smaller church, we will be encouraging people who ordinarily attend the 12:00 P.M. Mass at Assumption to consider attending the 10:30 Mass at Saint Anthony’s if possible. Of course, the 12:00 P.M. Mass will continue to be offered in Spanish as well. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we continue to keep you informed both on the parish website (assumptionparishpro.faith) and on our Facebook page.
