Congratulations to our First Communicants!
May, 2019 - The first two weekends of May were special for our St. Mary of the Assumption parish family as 46 children received their First Holy Communion! Families were able to select which of the regular Masses they would attend. More pictures from individual Masses are accessible from the following online folder: First Communion 2019
Younger children generally receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion following formation in our Parish School of Religion (PSR). Older children and adults follow RCIA formation. For additional information, contact Chris Stier at 937-557-1711, ext. 102 or [email protected]

1322 The holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation participate with the whole community in the Lord's own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist.1323 "At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.'"135
