New Mission Statement

Our Lady of the Assumption welcomes all people to grow in the Catholic faith as we celebrate our diverse community, nurture the Gospel message, and exemplify our love of Christ by serving others.

Welcome to OLA, located in the beautiful college town of Claremont, California. As a vibrant and diverse faith community, we support each other and our neighbors through over 70 ministries and a top-flight Catholic school.
