Please Consider Hosting for our NET Team April 30-May 3

We are 60 days out from our class retreats (April 30th– May 3rd).

This year, we are looking for families to host the NET missionaries from Sunday, April 28th (evening)- Friday, May 3rd (morning.) Each morning, they will need to be dropped off at the retreat site, and each evening, upon their return to your home, they need dinner and a place to sleep.

There are 5 men, and 5 women NET members. So we are looking for homes that could accommodate 2 or 3.

Please contact for more information about housing NET.

We are in need of host families! Please consider this need for our AHS community as a wonderful way to give back!

Feast of the Annunciation – Papal Consecration – Please Join Us In Prayer!

Today the Holy Father is asking all the faithful to join in prayer for peace.  We invite all members of our Assumption Family to respond as we seek the intercession of Blessed Mother Mary, our patroness.  Students have various opportunities for prayer and education this week and today regarding the Papal consecration of Russia and Ukraine that is scheduled to take place at the Vatican today at approximately 12:30 p.m. (US Central Standard Time).  Today (March 25th, 9 months before Christmas) is also the Feast of the Annunciation, celebrating the visit of the angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary during which he told her that she would be the mother of Jesus.

At school today, we started our morning with a brief explanation of what a consecration is, as we are most familiar with the “consecration” term as it applies to a priest consecrating the Eucharist – turning bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  It was explained that the term “consecrate” means “to dedicate to a sacred purpose.”  The Church applies this vocabulary toward the consecration of places, persons (consecrated religious or lay people), and liturgical objects.

Today, Pope Francis is asking all of us to join in prayer as he consecrates Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  In her apparitions to the three shepherd children at Fatima in 1917, Mary requested this consecration in an effort of peace.  We began our day at school with the following prayer:

Heavenly Father,

We come to you on this Feast of the Annunciation.  We celebrate this day the awesome reality that You became man, in the womb of our mother, Mary. We know that in everything, You are with us.  In this time of unrest in Ukraine, may we see your glory amidst great struggle.  We pray together today, as Pope Francis joins with the bishops and priests of the world, to consecrate both Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  May we all find the peace of Christ through the intercession of Mary.  May our hearts and the hearts of all people be turned in the direction of You, our Loving God. Amen.

Please consider watching the papal consecration live at the following link:

Thanks for your collective prayers with us today!

One in the Spirit,

Bridget Murphy

Students and faculty gathered in prayer to commemorate lives lost and all those hurting as a result of the Florida school shooting one month prior.  The candlelight service was yet another opportunity for our Assumption community to experience the blessing of faith-based education at Assumption High School.
