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.
GOOD FRIDAY: LIVE STATIONS OF THE CROSS
Meditating on the Passion and Death of Our Lord takes on
a whole new perspective when
viewing it “live.” On Good Friday
(April 14), Assumption will once
again present a very special form of
prayer – the annual re-enactment of
Live Stations of the Cross (in
Spanish). Join us in Depew Park, beginning at 12:00 pm
(noon), for an unforgettable way of experiencing the
Passion and contemplating Jesus’ love for humanity. (The
Legion of Mary will also lead a special Marian Way of the
Cross in the Church at 11:00 am that day, in lieu of the
usual Lenten Friday Stations of the Cross at 7:00 pm.)
