AHS Thursday Prayer Group

The AHS Prayer Group invites the entire Assumption family (parents, grandparents, alumni, etc.) to gather for prayer and Rosary each Thursday at 8:45 a.m. in the Faculty Parking Lot. Please bring a chair and join us in offering intentions for our entire AHS community!
Every Thursday the AHS Prayer Group prays for the students (each by name, one class per week), students’ intentions (prayer boxes are available in several of the teachers’ rooms), intentions for our entire AHS community, and then conclude praying the Rosary together. Come as you are and come when you are able and your schedule allows. Although many of you may work during the day and may not be able to join, please know, we are happy to lift any intentions you may have and we ask that you remember our prayer gathering and join us in spirit.

Service Hours Opportunity – Census

Assistance is needed in placing door hangers on apartments promoting the census.  The hanging period is designated for Friday, March 20-Monday, March 23.  There is no age requirements, but having some adult participation/supervision can be helpful.  Those placing hangers on doors are not interacting with anyone, they will just place the hanger and move on.

Please contact Ben Jobgen if you are interested in helping or have any questions.
