A message from our Pastor:

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.

Current Events:



This week's Thank You goes to our Assumption Annual Golf Outing Organizers, Sponsors and Participants. For our fourth year running, this great event has produced not just a great deal of fun for those who participated, but also a great deal of money for Assumption School. Despite the rainy day this past August 25, a great time was had by all at the nearby Hollow Brook Golf Club and Assumption School raised almost $10,000! Special thanks to the Fleitz Family who coordinated the great day. The names of so many others who helped in different ways to make the Golf Outing such a success can be seen in this week's insert. God reward them all for their kindness!


The cleaning ministry is in need of anyone who is willing to sacrifice their time to get together and serve God. This new ministry is not for the faint of heart. However, it is open to anyone who loves God and wishes to serve the Church by lending a helping hand! If you're interested in joining, please contact the rectory at 914-737-2071.
