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.

A tabernacle was constructed, the outer one, in which were the lampstand, the table, and the bread of offering; this is called the Holy Place. Behind the second veil was the tabernacle called the Holy of Holies, But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that have come to be, passing through the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made by hands, that is, not belonging to this creation, he entered once for all into the sanctuary, not with the blood of goats and calves but with his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and bulls and the sprinkling of a heifer's ashes can sanctify those who are defiled so that their flesh is cleansed, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works to worship the living God. ...

All you peoples, clap your hands; shout to God with cries of gladness. For the LORD, the Most High, the awesome, is the great king over all the earth. God mounts his throne amid shouts of joy; the LORD, amid trumpet blasts. Sing praise to God, sing praise; sing praise to our king, sing praise. For king of all the earth is God; sing hymns of praise. God reigns over the nations, God sits upon his holy throne. ...

Jesus came with his disciples into the house. Again the crowd gathered, making it impossible for them even to eat. When his relatives heard of this they set out to seize him, for they said, "He is out of his mind." ...

O Jesus, divine food of the soul, this immense concourse turns to you. It wishes to give to its human and Christian vocation a new, vigorous power of interior virtue, and to be ready for sacrifice, of which you were such a wonderful pattern in word and example. You are our elder brother; you have trodden our path before us, O Christ Jesus, the path of every one of us; you have forgiven all our sins; you inspire us, each and all, to give a nobler, more convinced and more active witness of Christian life. O Jesus, our “bread of life” (Jn 6:35) and the only substantial food for our souls, gather all peoples around your table. Your altar is divine reality on earth, the pledge of heavenly favors, the assurance of just understanding among peoples, and of peaceful rivalry in the true progress of civilization. Nourished by you and with you, O Jesus, men will be strong in faith,… ...
