The 2018 Assumption Booster Club Golf Outing is dedicated to the memory of Monsignor James F. Parizek. Father Jim, as he was known, was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop O’Keefe in 1972 and his first assignment was Associate Pastor at St. Paul the Apostle in Davenport. He also served many years as Pastor of Our Lady of Victory (OLV) Parish in Davenport until his retirement in 2016. Father Jim received the title Monsignor in 1989. He was a staunch supporter of Catholic education throughout his ministry and had a special fondness for working with the hearing impaired community so that they, too, could hear the word of God. Throughout his ministry Father Jim provided outstanding leadership and pastoral care to parishes in the Davenport diocese, and often remarked how his last assignment as Pastor of OLV was the highlight of his ministry.

Over the years, Assumption High School has had one of the most successful athletic programs in the state of Iowa.  The Booster Club supports AHS athletics with not only uniforms and equipment, but they also co-sponsor (along with the Century Club) sendoff events to cover the costs associated with sending teams and individuals to their respective state tournaments.  The annual golf outing is one of the Booster Club’s major fundraisers and your participation will help the Booster Club continue to provide the much needed support to AHS athletics.
