Eestablished in 1870, Saint Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church is a community of Catholic Christian believers in communion with the Bishop of Austin.
Our parish exists to give glory to God our Father, to grow in the knowledge of his love for us in Jesus Christ and to share that love in our community by living His Gospel.
Through baptism we are called to holiness of life, sharing the benefits and responsibilities of our salvation. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we have given witness to our faith by our worship, the formation of our members and our outreach to our community.
Saint Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church is the "Mother Church" of Catholicism in the Waco area and a parish with a rich history and tradition of prayer, worship and service in Waco, Texas.
