The parish of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary has reached a milestone few others have accomplished. Founded in 1842 as the 3rd Roman Catholic Parish in Brooklyn, Assumption predates the founding of the Diocese. Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio led the celebration as Tim Harfmann reports from Brooklyn Heights.
