About Us

 

For close to 60 years, Our Lady of the Assumption Parish has been serving the people of northeast Albuquerque. While much has changed in our area throughout the years, one thing has remained the same — the commitment of our parish to the faith of Jesus Christ. Since the days of the first Masses in the Assumption Mission Chapel, through the first six-room school and convent at our present site, and the current church, men and women of faith have gathered for prayer, worship and fellowship as member of our parish family. As a parish community, we are extremely proud of the high quality Catholic education that our parishioners have generously support since 1954. Graduates of OLA School enjoy the benefits of the skills and knowledge they have acquired during their time spent here. They have a solid foundation based on faith that will help them to become successful and caring adults. It is my hope that this web site will acquaint you with what our parish has to offer. Pleas use this site to find information about the parish and the school. I invite your participation in the parish and to make weekly Sunday Mass the center of your spiritual life. Pope Benedict XVI in his Apostolic Exhortation, “Deus Charitas Est,” (God is Love) reminds us how much God loves us, and how through an act of love on our part at Mass we say: “Lord, you know that I love you.” May the flame of love always burn brightly in our lives as we find true life through the Eucharist and Church. May our faith guide us to the Lord and help us to be the salt of the earth and light to the world.

"Melchizedek, king of Salem and priest of God Most High, met Abraham as he returned from his defeat of the kings and blessed him." And Abraham apportioned to him "a tenth of everything." His name first means righteous king, and he was also "king of Salem," that is, king of peace. Without father, mother, or ancestry, without beginning of days or end of life, thus made to resemble the Son of God, he remains a priest forever. It is even more obvious if another priest is raised up after the likeness of Melchizedek, who has become so, not by a law expressed in a commandment concerning physical descent but by the power of a life that cannot be destroyed. For it is testified: "You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek." ...

The LORD said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand till I make your enemies your footstool.” The scepter of your power the LORD will stretch forth from Zion: “Rule in the midst of your enemies.” “Yours is princely power in the day of your birth, in holy splendor; before the daystar, like the dew, I have begotten you.” The LORD has sworn, and he will not repent: “You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.” ...

Jesus entered the synagogue. There was a man there who had a withered hand. They watched him closely to see if he would cure him on the sabbath so that they might accuse him. He said to the man with the withered hand, "Come up here before us." Then he said to them, "Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath rather than to do evil, to save life rather than to destroy it?" But they remained silent. Looking around at them with anger and grieved at their hardness of heart, he said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out and his hand was restored. The Pharisees went out and immediately took counsel with the Herodians against him to put him to death. ...

You have not seen God; you have not recognized the Lord; you did not know that it was he, God's Firstborn, who was begotten before the morning star (Ps 110[109]:3), who caused light to spring up, who caused day to shine forth when he separated it from darkness, who set the first limits, suspending the earth, drying up the great abyss, spreading out the firmament (…), who created the angels in heaven, setting thrones there, and who shaped man of the earth. He it was who chose Israel and guided it from Adam to Noah, from Noah to Abraham, from Abraham to Isaac and Jacob and the twelve patriarchs. It was he who led your fathers in Egypt, who protected and fed them. He, who gave them manna from heaven, who quenched their thirst from the rock, who gave them the Law and the promised land, who sent prophets to them and raised up their kings. It is he who… ...
