Founded in Roseland, Nebraska, the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary was begun in October 1883. The church was based in the area's German settlement, protecting them from a long trip to weekly mass. Assumption Church took many of its early traditions - including a "mass monitor" - from the Luxembourger community at St. Donatus, Iowa. With a Germanic tradition, German remained its primary language well through World War I.
Still active in Roseland, the Assumption Church does not have a website or an easy-to-locate address. The best way to locate their records is to contact the Adams County Historical Society, mentioned in yesterday's post.The cemetery is listed on Find A Grave.
