Are you looking for service hours? In honor of “Cathedral Sunday” (and in an effort to support our Diocesan Cathedral), we are looking for students/families to sell raffle tickets after each of this weekend’s Masses (February 3/4) at our supporting parishes. The job is simple- stand at the back (tickets in hand) and be available for sales as parishioners exit Mass. The sign-up timeframes list the Mass times at each parish, so volunteers should expect to stay 15-20 minutes after Mass to complete the service opportunity. We are so blessed to have our beautiful cathedral so near. Fortunately, we are able to host our annual Baccalaureate Mass there, as well as a variety of choir and retreat events throughout the year. Supporting this effort is but a small way we can assist in keeping this beautiful place of worship (that we all share) at its best.
A single student name can be entered (the student’s siblings and/or parents are welcome to assist with covering the multiple exits of the church), or a few students can sign up together. Each Mass a student covers will count for 1/2 hour of service for the AHS service log. Students are allowed to cover multiple Masses at their parish, if desired. Students covering any Mass should pick up a packet of tickets by the end of the day on Friday, February 2nd, in the front office.
Please consider helping with this effort. Click here to sign up via the SignUp Genius. We are blessed to be a part of this vibrant Catholic community, and many hands make lighter work. Happy Catholic Schools Week 2018!

Are you looking for service hours? In anticipation of Catholic Schools Week next week, we are looking for students/families to represent Assumption at each of this weekend’s Masses (January 27/28) at our supporting parishes. The job is simple- hand out “thank-you” flyers as parishioners exit Mass. The sign-up timeframes list the Mass times at each parish, so volunteers should expect to stay 15-20 minutes after Mass to complete the service opportunity. The purpose of the flyer is to express appreciation to the community for its ongoing support of Catholic education at Assumption High School and to invite them to this Sunday’s AHS Senior Spaghetti Supper. The meal is complimentary, and is held from 4-7pm in the Assumption cafeteria. This year marks the 59th year of this annual tradition of senior service to our school community!
Please click on the signup below to commit to passing out flyers at a given Mass. A single student name can be entered (the student’s siblings and/or parents are welcome to assist with covering the multiple exits of the church), or a few students can sign up together. Each Mass a student covers will count for 1/2 hour of service for the AHS service log. Students are allowed to cover multiple Masses at their parish, if desired. Flyers will be distributed to students covering the first Mass at each parish on Friday, January 26th, in the front office. (Students covering subsequent Masses should look for the flyers in a cardboard flat in a back center pew of the church.)
Please consider helping with this appreciation effort. We are so grateful to our wider Assumption Community, and without this support, the education at Assumption High School would not be possible. Happy Catholic Schools Week 2018!
