June 3, 2018 | Important Message from the Pastor

May 29, 2018 | Assumption is Coming to you!

When we think of church we usually think of a place we go to on Sundays. It’s not often the church comes to us! Well that’s exactly what Adam Eichelberger, our new Director of Evangelization intends to do; bring the church to YOU! Eichelberger, originally from Tucson, AZ has made it his life’s mission to help people fall in love with Jesus. After a career with Apple he moved to youth and young-adult ministry in various parishes, motivational speaking, leadership training and currently assists several parishes in Central New York. The plan is to organize monthly gatherings in a home or coffee shop where there are concentrations of parishioners; in North Syracuse, Liverpool, Solvay or any neighborhoods that want to participate. We’ll gather to reflect on scripture, share our experiences and just as importantly grow in friendship. It’s a way for our parishioners to feed their spirit besides Sunday mass. These gatherings will be open to all parishioners and any guest you may want to bring. We are also excited to announce that Adam will coordinate the implementation of the Alpha program. Alpha is for people who are unchurched, have abandoned the faith or are struggling with what they believe. It involves hosting a series of evenings that include a meal, a video or presentation and then conversation. There are no strings attached. No judgement. No pressure. Alpha has been around since 1990 and has touched the lives of millions of participants in 169 countries and been offered in 112 languages. Adam is uniquely positioned to speak to young adults in Syracuse for whom this will be first encounter with Jesus. He, we, will need to work hard to make this a reality in September 2018. It can be a game-changer for Assumption’s future!

However, Assumption Cemetery is owned and operated by a Cemetery Corporation of the Franciscan Friars Conventual. The parish has no say over its management. Concerns and questions should be directed to the Cemetery Director, Mrs. Sandy Miller at or by telephone 443-583-7644 ext: 151.
