2022 Annual Report
Thank you for taking a few moments to visit the website of Our Lady of the Assumption Roman Catholic Parish with worship sites in both Lucernemines and Coral, Indiana County, Pennsylvania.
Whether one has lived in our beautiful region their entire life, or is simply traveling through via an area highway, our parish has two beautiful church buildings wherein we both worship God and nourish the soul. Gathering around the Lord’s word and altar for holy Mass, our parish family seeks the face of God who loves us tremendously and created us in his image and likeness.
The first woman doctor of the church, St. Teresa of Avila, once wrote “May God protect me from gloomy saints” and “Since Christ has so few friends, let us be good ones.”
It is in that spirit of Christian discipleship that we at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish seek to be good friends of God and radiate his joy to all the world.
Again welcome to our website and thank you for sharing a few minutes of your time with us.
EUCHARISTIC MIRACLES OF THE WORLD EXHIBIT–JUNE 9TH THRU JUNE 11TH
This exhibit, to be displayed in Podowski Hall at our Lucernemines worship site, is a physical presentation of the Eucharistic Miracles website created by Blessed Carlo Acutis. Carlo Acutis was an Italian Catholic youth and website designer, who is best know for documenting Eucharistic Miracle around the work and cataloguing them onto a website which he created before his death in 2006 from leukemia at the age of 15. He is noted for his cheerfulness, computer skills and deep devotion to the Eucharist which became a core theme of his life. Carlo Acutis was beatified on October 10th, 2020, and is currently being considered for canonization. This Exhibit is accompanied by a first class relic of Blessed Carl Acutis. Admission is free. Resources will be available for children and teens. Plan to stop by! June 9th-5:00pm-8:00pm, June 10th-12:00pm-8:00pm and/or June 11th-10:00am-3:00pm.

Prayer for Eucharistic Revival
Lord Jesus, You are the living bread who satisfies the hunger of the human heart. In the Eucharist, the bread and wine become Your Body and Blood, the gift of Yourself to the Church. Deepen our faith in Your Eucharistic presence and strengthen us as members of the Church, the Body of Christ. As we encounter and revere Your Eucharistic presence, open us to the needs of our brothers and sisters here and everywhere throughout the world. Help us to reveal Your love, Your promise, Your presence to them by our lives and in all we say and do. Amen.
