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.
GET YOUR DAILY DOSE OF LENT
They’re not just our priests but potential YouTube sensations! Father Higgins and Father Vincent have created a series of short videos to be viewed each new day as we journey through Lent. These “Lenten Moments” are available through a number of social media outlets, with a new video posted each day on our website (www.assumptionpeekskill.org), on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/CatholicPeekskill), and on our Catholic Peekskill YouTube Channel. To make it even more effortless, you can choose to have your Lenten Moment delivered to your inbox or mobile device each morning, via e-mail or text message, from Flocknote. There’s no cost involved – you don’t have to download anything or create a password or jump through any kind of technological hoop. To sign up, just text PEEKSKILL to 84576 or go to www.flocknote.com/assumptionpeekskill. (If texting, you’ll receive a confirmation text back from Flocknote and a second message with a link to click to complete the process; click the link, choose “Assumption Lent” and any other groups of interest.)
A SIMPLE LENTEN MEAL
During Lent, we are obliged to fast and, on Fridays, to abstain from meat. Each Friday of Lent, our CCD Confirmation students will be offering a simple meal of soup and salad at 5:30 pm in the Music Room (second floor of the Annex Hall), prior to Stations of the Cross at 7:00 pm. Please join us this Friday, for an evening of nourishment, both physical and spiritual.
