Who We Are

Our Lady of the Assumption is a diverse and growing parish located in Brookhaven, Georgia with over 1,600 registered households who are deeply involved as stewards to the parish and to the Brookhaven community.
 

As a Marist community: “We carry out the Ministry of Jesus, the Christ, in the compassionate Spirit of Mary.”  We seek to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, within the Catholic tradition. Informed by the spirit of the Society of Mary (Marists), the ideal to live like Christ in the world, is expressed in our parish under the broad areas of Worship, Education and Service.

 

We are a parish of many cultures, including Indonesian and Latino. Parishioners include people who live in the Brookhaven - a city nestled north of downtown Atlanta and Buckhead - and the surrounding community. 

We are proud to have two excellent schools on our campus - the OLA Preschool for 12 months through 4 years old, and the OLA Catholic School for Pre-K through 8th grade.

With a multitude of social functions and ministry opportunities for all ages, interests, and time commitments we offer something for everyone.
