The Church of the Assumption was founded on January 15, 1907 for a small group of Italian immigrants living in Roselle Park, New Jersey.
The small community outgrew both the first and second Church buildings. On August 20, 1955, the present Church was dedicated and the doors opened to welcome new generations of Roselle Park residents seeking to be a part of this vibrant community of faith.
We are the heirs of those early, devoted Catholics who made great sacrifices to prepare a place for us to worship God and come together in Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit.
You are welcome to join us as we continue this journey of faith. Come worship with us and join our family where everyone is at home.
