Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Joliet in Illinois. First and foremost, we exist as a Catholic Parish to offer praise to Almighty God, to grow in holiness through our participation in the Sacramental life of the Church, most especially in our reception and worship of the Holy Eucharist, Jesus the Christ, and to pray for the salvation of our souls and for the whole world.

Our Catholic and Christian Faith motivates us to action through education, as well as active participation in the work of the Church through service to others. We proudly profess our faith in Jesus Christ as Roman Catholics with more than one billion Catholics worldwide, in union with our Bishop, The Most Reverend Daniel Conlon, and Francis, our Pope.

As Parishioners, the Body of Christ of Assumption Parish, celebrating our presence here in Coal City, Illinois since the year 1889, we stand today as part of a rich history ~ a rich Heritage of Faith that is Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish!

Come and join us in praise of God and in fellowship as we live for the Mission of Jesus Christ in His one, true, holy and apostolic Church. Give your heart to Jesus and He will give you Heaven!

The 2019 CMAA is coming to your home!

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Our 2019 Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal (CMAA) is now underway. Very soon, information about our CMAA will be coming to your home. As the pages unfold, so will the stories about real people, the challenges they have faced and how gifts to the CMAA have given them a sign of hope. You can also hear these personal testimonies in our new video, "Signs of Hope."

The CMAA is vital to the Diocese of Joliet, providing the critical resources needed to support the ministries that care for so many of our friends, neighbors and everyone in the community.

Please support the Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal this year. By becoming a sign of hope, we can work together to do the important work of God’s Church in the Diocese of Joliet.
