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.
FEAST OF THE ASCENSION LORD
The Ascension of the Lord, which occurred forty days after Jesus Christ rose from the dead on Easter Sunday, continues our joy in the Resurrection. Many New Testament accounts (Luke 24:51; Mark 16:19; Acts 1:9-11) testify to the risen Christ ascending bodily into Heaven in the sight of the Apostles. Ascension Thursday – a Holy Day of Obligation – falls on May 5 this year. Our Masses will be as follows:
Wednesday, May 4 (Vigil) – 5:30 pm
7:00 pm (CCD Mass/ Bilingual)
Thursday, May 5 – 6:45 am
7:30 pm (Bilingual)*
*(with Sacraments of Initiation for RCIA for Teens candidates)
Assumption Church has its own television show called Catholic Peekskill featuring interviews and information relating to our Catholic Faith.
Catholic Peekskill airs weekly on Cablevision TV Channel 15 on Tuesday at 9:30, Wednesday at 5:30pm and Sunday at 4:00 pm and can be seen from Peekskill to Tarrytown; and, on FIOS TV Channel 37 on Tuesday and Wednesday, 6:00pm in Westchester, Orange, Rockland, Putnam and Duchess counties.
