Who We Are
Assumption Church is a Society of Saint Pius X chapel in Walton, KY.
At Assumption Church, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is celebrated according to
1962 Missale Romanum,
also known as the Traditional Latin Mass.
"The Holy Mass is a prayer itself, even the highest prayer
that exists. It is the Sacrifice dedicated by our Redeemer at the Cross, and repeated
every day on the Altar. If you wish to hear the Mass as it should be heard, you
must follow with eye, heart, and mouth all that happens at the Altar.
Further, you must pray with the priest the holy words said by him in the Name of
Christ and which Christ says by him. You have to associate your heart with the holy
feelings which are contained in these words and in this manner you ought to follow
all that happens on the Altar. When acting in this way, you have prayed Holy Mass."
—Pope St. Pius X
The church is blessed with a priory, where there are three resident priests:
- Reverend Fr. Adam Purdy
- Reverend Fr. Joseph Horvath
- Reverend Fr. Thomas Scott
