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.

We will be reaching out to parishioners beginning in March regarding an exciting Campaign entitled “Renew & Rebuild” that is based on the core concepts of Catholic Stewardship. Our goal will be to raise funds over a period of five years to underwrite the considerable costs related to a number of needed capital improvements to both the Church and Parish Center. 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.

You Can Understand
the Bible

A Practical and Illuminating Guide to Each Book in the Bible

By Peter Kreeft

Many people are often understandably intimidated or overwhelmed by the sheer size and complexity of the Bible. But now popular author and Boston University professor Peter Kreeft has written a clear road map of the Bible, focusing his keen insight and engaging wit on the core message of each book. This is an abridged version that includes the 2nd half of the book. It won’t take long for you to understand why his guide to Scripture has become a best-seller! Sparkling with intelligence and Kreeft’s trademark humor, You Can Understand the Bible will transform dry study into spiritually satisfying adventures in God’s Word. Regardless of how you approached—or didn’t approach—the Bible before, you’ll come away with a new appreciation of its depth and meaning.

Kreeft also provides practical guidance for praying the Scriptures every day, allowing the reader to delve into the messages of Scripture in a manner that will surprise, delight, and reward.

This is just one of many books available to read, and audio books to listen to — for children, youth and adults. Don’t miss out on this wonderful resource. If it’s your first time on the website, our parish code for registering is K8TFMK.
