Welcome to Our Lady of the Assumption Church!

We are served by the Carmelite Friars as a mission church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel
and we serve the Catholic community of Orange and Sullivan Counties.

We are located at 17 High Street in Bloomingburg.

Saturday, May 6th is a big day at OLA! It’s our first-ever Spring Fling Vendor Sale featuring a diverse offering of new merchandise, food, and more. Check out the flyer at the left and please plan on stopping by. It’s not to be missed!

Holy Week at  Our Lady of the Assumption was truly filled with the Holy Spirit. Our Masses and services were well-attended. Easter Sunday, alone, we had more than 270 people in attendance! We thank God for His abundance and pray we will see many return in future weeks. Just take a look at this picture to see how we were bursting at the seams on Easter morning…

The Church was beautifully decorated, providing a joyous setting for the Easter Celebration.

The Garden, where Jesus remained from Holy Thursday evening through the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday, provided a beautiful setting in which many prayed and stayed with Him as we awaited the Day of Resurrection.

The “Renew & Rebuild” Campaign, based on the core concepts of Catholic Stewardship, is going well to date. A number

of parishioners have been most generous with their gifts and we thank you for your generosity! We’ll be updating the entire parish in the near future. Our Co-Chairmen, Stefan Chevalier and Joe Herschel are working with additional volunteers – Mary Donnelly, Bob Ernst, and John Zupetz, Jr. and they all are continuing to reach out ‘one-on-one’ to more of our parish. There will also be an in-pew solicitation coming up in May.

Our goal is to raise funds over a period of five years to underwrite the considerable costs related to a number of needed capital improvements to the Church, Parish Center and Pavilion. Churches throughout the Archdiocese of New York are participating in this campaign and we’re looking forward to great success for OLA. Stefan Chevalier and Joe Herschel are Co-Chairmen.

Mission Statement:
The Catholic Faith Community of Our Lady of the Assumption lives out
the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our Eucharistic celebration,
our prayers, our works, and by reaching out to others with compassion and joy.
