Anyone who drives down Main Street in O'Fallon, Missouri can see that the people of God at Assumption Parish have built something beautiful! However, as beautiful as our buildings are, the true beauty is not in the buildings, but in what they hold: for they hold Love. Indeed, it is our commitment at Assumption that – by how we live - Christ’s love would be known in our every gathering.
The wording on our cornerstone states our mission: May you find Christ here... May you bring Christ to the world. To help that dream become reality, perhaps we would do well from time to time to recommit ourselves to the pledge we made at our groundbreaking, by praying again the prayer below:
God of all goodness, it is our pledge to follow humbly the way of your Son, to welcome warmly all who come here, and to reach out courageously in service to others. Bless our efforts, O God, that your love might be known in our every gathering.
Through the intercession of Mary, may all who ever come to this parish named in her honor, find her Son here ... and then bring His love to the world.
My love in Jesus,
403 North Main Street, O'Fallon, MO 63366
