Thank you for visiting Assumption Catholic Church! 

It is always a joy to have visitors to our congregation. If you are interested in learning more about the Roman Catholic Faith, and/or if you are Catholic and would like to become a parishioner, please call Father Noesen at the Parish office or click here to register online.

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!

Mt. Olivet Cemetery Clean up Day - April 27

Volunteers Needed
Mt. Olivet Cemetery Clean up Day

It's that time of year again! We are asking for volunteers who would like to help do spring clean-up for our cemetery this coming Saturday, April 27th from 8:00 a.m. until Noon.  We will all meet at the cemetery main entrance at 7:45 a.m. to distribute tasks. Please bring a shovel and a bucket or wheelbarrow if possible. Remember to dress appropriately and please wear gloves for your protection.

There is an excessive amount of cactus that are out there that we need to dig up and remove so that we can plant grass seed. It is recommended that you wear long pants or jeans for your protection as well as bug spray. We really need your help, so if you are interested in helping in this beautification project please contact Tricia at Assumption Parish Offices 815-634-4171 and leave your name and phone number. Thank you
