Active Parishioner Status
Do you send your child to a Catholic School?
Or plan to apply in the future?
Have you been asked to be a Godparent or Confirmation Sponsor?
You will need a Parish Verification or Sponsor letter. To do this, the parish office must be able to verify that you are an Active Parishioner. Additionally, many of the Catholic Schools offer discounted or “Catholic” tuition rates for being an active parishioner. You may ask, what is an active parishioner? It is much more than just joining a church.
The Archdiocese of Atlanta defines “active parishioners” as those registered and worshipping members who contribute of their time, talent, and financial resources to support the Parish by the following:
supports their Parish financially,
actively participates in Mass each week,
shares their talent within the parish community (Adult Ministry, not children/youth).
We would like you to share your talents with us. We have many opportunities here at OLA to get involved. Some ministry’s can take a lot of your time and involvement; others are a couple of times a year; so there is something for everyone to be involved in our Parish Life.

OLA has many fun events for your family to enjoy, however, attending something is not considered as sharing of your talents.
An example of enjoying one of our events while sharing your talent would be to formally sign up with the responsible ministry to help with the coordination, set-up, tear-down or overseeing that the event runs smoothly.
By participating in the prayer of the Church through it’s liturgies, and sharing your time and talent with Our Lady of the Assumption, you keep our Parish vibrant with many fun activities. We need your support and you may just have a great time while meeting some really great people while you are getting involved!
Parish Verifications, with a photo attached, should be turned in to Anne Stephens at the Parish Office.
