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 members 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 website will acquaint you with what our parish has to offer. Please 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.

Those whose masters are believers must not take advantage of them because they are brothers but must give better service because those who will profit from their work are believers and are beloved. Whoever teaches something different and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the religious teaching is conceited, understanding nothing, and has a morbid disposition for arguments and verbal disputes. From these come envy, rivalry, insults, evil suspicions, and mutual friction among people with corrupted minds, who are deprived of the truth, supposing religion to be a means of gain. Indeed, religion with contentment is a great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, just as we shall not be able to take anything out of it. If we have food and clothing, we shall be content with that. Those who want to be rich are falling into temptation and into a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires, which… ...

Why should I fear in evil days when my wicked ensnarers ring me round? They trust in their wealth; the abundance of their riches is their boast. Yet in no way can a man redeem himself, or pay his own ransom to God; Too high is the price to redeem one’s life; he would never have enough to remain alive always and not see destruction. Fear not when a man grows rich, when the wealth of his house becomes great, For when he dies, he shall take none of it; his wealth shall not follow him down. Though in his lifetime he counted himself blessed, “They will praise you for doing well for yourself,” He shall join the circle of his forebears who shall never more see light. ...

Jesus journeyed from one town and village to another, preaching and proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God. Accompanying him were the Twelve and some women who had been cured of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, Joanna, the wife of Herod's steward Chuza, Susanna, and many others who provided for them out of their resources. ...

It is particularly moving to meditate on the attitude of Jesus to woman. He showed himself to be bold and surprising for those times in which woman was considered in paganism an object of pleasure, of possession and of labor, and was subordinated and humiliated in Judaism. Jesus always showed the greatest esteem and the greatest respect for woman, for every woman, and in particular he was sensitive to female suffering. Going beyond the religious and social barriers of the time, Jesus re-established woman in her full dignity as a human person before God and before men. How could we fail to recall his meetings with Martha and Mary (Lk 10:38-42), with the Samaritan women (Jn 4:1-42), with the widow of Naim (Lk 7:11-17), with the adulterous woman (Jn 8:3-9), with the woman who suffered from a haemorrhage (Mt 9:20-22), with the sinner at the house of Simon the Pharisee (Lk 7:36-50)? A mere enumeration of them stirs our hearts.… ...
