AHS Looking for Willing Families to Host NET Members

Happy Friday!

It’s that time of year again, the class retreats are a little under a month away.

I know most have not been making plans past the immediate future, but if you happen to be thinking ahead, please consider asking your family if they are willing to be a HOST family for the NET team that will be here the first week of May. NET stands for the National Evangelical Team, which consists of college students ages 19-24 that are taking a year off school to spread their love and knowledge for Christ.

If your family has done this in the past, or you think it is something they are interested in, please don’t hesitate to show them this email!!!

I am currently looking for willing families to host two or more NET members on the following dates:

May 3rd (pick-up from Assumption High School in the evening , provide dinner and lodging.)

May 4th retreat day for AHS senior students (Host family will drop-off in AM, provide dinner and lodging in evening)

May 5th retreat day for AHS sophomore students  ( Host family will drop-off in AM, provide dinner and lodging in evening)

May 6th retreat day for AHS freshmen students (Host family will drop-off in AM)

For more information, please do not hesitate to ask! natalie.imborek@assumptionhigh.org

Typically, I request that host families provide a bed for each member they are hosting. I am available to get team members back to your house in the afternoon, if you can drop them off at AHS the mornings of the retreats.

Thank you!

Mrs. Natalie Imborek

Campus Minister

Theology & Psychology Teacher

Volunteer/Community Service Opportunities

Camp Wyoming (located in Jones County, Iowa) is in need of volunteers this summer.

Female volunteers only: Our TTT (pronounced Tri-T) summer camp program serves close to 100 4th grade girls a week from under-privileged homes throughout Iowa. Volunteer counselors assist our camp staff and help lead the girls in activities like swimming, arts and crafts, kayaking, and games, as well as supervise them in their cabins at night. TTT Volunteers are needed the weeks of June 5-10 and June 12-17. Volunteers must be current juniors in high school or older to apply. Earn 120 volunteer hours with one week of service!

Male and female volunteers: Our traditional summer camp programs serve children and youth between the ages of 5 and 17. These programs are religious in nature, so volunteers must be comfortable working and participating in a Christian program. Volunteer counselors assist our camp staff in caring for campers and leading activities like swimming, kayaking, archery, and Bible study, as well as caring for the campers at night. Volunteers are needed during the weeks of June 19-24, June 26-July 1, July 10-15, July 17-22, and/or July 24-29. Volunteers must be current juniors in high school or older to apply. Earn 120 volunteer hours with one week of service!

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: https://www.ewtn.com/tv/watch-live

Thanks for your collective prayers with us today!

One in the Spirit,

Bridget Murphy
