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.

    TRAVELING CHALICE

    Assumption has received a gift of a Chalice that was used by Father James Finnigan throughout his priesthood.  Father Finnigan grew up in Peekskill and served at Assumption for many years.  We are starting a program that will provide an opportunity for families in the parish to keep this beautiful Chalice in their home for one week.  The purpose of the Travelling Chalice Program is to encourage families to take time, each day, during the week the Chalice is in their home to pray together to promote vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life.  In the future, the Chalice will be presented to the first new priest from Assumption Parish. For more information or to schedule a visit in your home, please contact Ellen Bennett at 914-788-6261 or Annie Zuzarte at 914-610-5035.  



    CATHOLIC PEEKSKILL
     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.
