Assumption began as an Italian National Parish. Its purpose was to serve members of the immigrant Italian community who came to Tuckahoe to work at the marble quarries.
The church was built by quarry workers, using uncut Tuckahoe marble. After work and on weekends, the men gathered to build the church. Many of our current faithful are direct descendants of the men who built the church.
Although a relatively small church, the faithful have always been quite active. Italian traditions are apparent in the feast days and celebrations at the Church. Mass is still offered in Italian on the first Sunday of the month, at 9:00 AM. On other Sundays, the 9:00 AM Mass is in English. However, the church is still serving the immigrant community: every Sunday at noon, Mass is offered in Spanish.
On August 1, 2015, Assumption became part of the newly formed Immaculate Conception and Assumption of Our Lady Parish.
