UPDATE ON ASSUMPTION CHURCH WINDOW PROJECT
Repairs to the large window in the sanctuary of Assumption Church have begun. However, it has become apparent that these repairs are going to take a good deal longer than we originally anticipated. As a result, we have decided to move all of the regularly scheduled Masses back to Assumption. For the time being, both the 9:00 A.M. and 12:00 P.M. Sunday Masses and the 7:00 P.M. Mass on Wednesday evening will be celebrated in the church basement.On June 22, 1895, a statue of the Sacred Heart, a gift of a pious parishioner, was erected in the original Assumption Church. It is one of celebrated “Munich” statues created in Germany by Franz Mayer of Munich, Inc. The statue is a life-size representation of “The Sacred Heart of Jesus Pleading”. The statue was solemnly blessed during a special service on Sunday afternoon, July 14, 1895. Cost of the statue and pedestal was about $135.00. This statue was moved to the new Assumption Church when it opened in June 1912. The statue is still on display in the church and was completely restored around 2010.
