First Sunday of Advent

Light one purple candle on your Advent Wreath and pray:
Stir up Thy might, we beg Thee, O Lord, and come, so that we may escape through Thy protection and be saved by Thy help from the dangers that threaten us because of our sins. Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen.

Welcome to the parish of St. Mary of the Assumption!  Our parish includes the main campus at St. Mary of the Assumption located in Brookline Village, as well as the worship site of St. Lawrence on Route 9 in Chestnut Hill.

We are a welcoming Catholic community of believers who welcome those looking to visit for a time, are looking for a new parish home, seeking to return to their Catholic faith or learning more about the Catholic church.  Whatever the reason, we are happy to have you, we believe that you will find here a supportive and loving spiritual home.

We hope that you will find here a place to grow spiritually, to put your faith in action, and to use your gifts of time and talent for the glory of God and as disciples of Christ. We look forward to answering any questions you may have, and in the meantime welcome you to explore our website and contact any of our staff with your questions/needs.
