Assumption Church, located in the heart of Peekskill, has been serving God's people since 1859. As a Catholic community united by faith in Jesus Christ, We are called to proclaim the kingdom of God. Nourished by the Holy Eucharist and the Gospel, our parish strives to reflect Christ’s light to the world through worship, education and service.
As has become a custom at Assumption, our Church will once more offer a five-week Pre-Lenten Preaching Series. During the weeks leading up to Ash Wednesday (March 1), the Preaching Series will zero in on the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew Chapters 5 – 7), from which each Gospel reading of those five weeks is drawn. Exploring the unifying theme “Called to be…,” a special homily will be delivered at each Mass on a particular weekend. Beginning this weekend.
The schedule for the whole series:
February 25/26 Too Blessed to be Stressed Father Juniper Adams, CFR
ST. PATRICK’S DAY IS ALMOST HERE!
And, as has become Peekskill tradition, a special St. Patrick’s Mass will be celebrated at Assumption on Saturday, March 11 at 1:30 pm, prior to the start of the 28th Annual Peekskill St. Patrick’s Parade. Come join Grand Marshal Michael O’Hanlon and his Aides Alan Drogy, Dr. William Higgins, Police Chief Eric Johansen and Steven Zwick at this celebratory Mass, which includes musical accompaniment by talented local musicians. After the Mass, stroll into town and enjoy the parade!
Assumption will host an Immigration Forum on Sunday, March 12 at 3:00 pm in the Church. Presented by a team from Catholic Charities, including an immigration lawyer, the forum (conducted in Spanish) will seek to bring clarity to the situation created by the current Executive Orders in regard to immigration, explaining the rights and remedies of those affected, especially Hispanic immigrants.

Our Renew + Rebuild campaign continues! Thanks to the generosity of 339 families and individuals, our parish has reached well over $1,200,000 in pledges toward our capital campaign. It’s practically impossible to put into words how grateful we are. Though our initial goal of $1,115,500 has been passed in dollar amounts, we are only at 16% participation in terms of the number of families in our parish. Just imagine how much we could get done for our beloved Assumption if all our families participated! If you have not done so, please consider making a pledge. From this point onward, 85% of what is raised remains in our parish. And, should we reach the lofty heights of 120% of goal – i.e., $1,338,600 – 100% of the funds received after that mark is achieved remain with us. Pledge forms are available at the tables near the back of the Church as well as in the Rectory or by clicking on the link below...
