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.

Jesus said to his disciples: "Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father. When you give alms, do not blow a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets to win the praise of others. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right is doing, so that your almsgiving may be secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you. When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, who love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on street corners so that others may see them. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward.

“Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them.” Why not? If people see them then what will you get out of them? “You will have no recompense from your heavenly Father”. My brethren, the Lord is not bringing judgement here but giving an explanation. He casts light on the wiles of our thoughts; he strips bare the secret intentions of our souls. He draws attention to the measure of a just retribution to those unrighteous pondering righteousness. Righteousness that sets itself in the sight of others can expect no divine reward from the Father. It wanted to be seen and it was seen; it wanted to please others and it pleased them. It has received the recompense it wanted; the recompense it did not want, it will not have (…). “When you give alms, do not blow a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do.” “Blow your trumpet”: this is the exact phrase in… ...
