Pray the Novena with Mother Susan and Sister Anthony – Starts 4-10-2020

Mother Susan and Sister Anthony would like to invite you to pray the Divine Mercy Novena with us.

The Novena (usually a 9 day prayer) will begin this Friday, April 10th @ 2:30 PM.

(We moved the chaplet up so those in Davenport could participate in the Good Friday Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion via St. Paul the Apostle’s Facebook page Live. The remaining days of the novena will be @ 3:00PM)

Below is the Zoom Meeting information. Please note the added security feature of a password! It’s “Mercy”.

I will send out the following Novena Days (2-9) meeting links after the chaplet on Friday. I’m not sure if I should put the links in one email, or email one link every day. If you have a preference let me know. Majority will rule.

Lastly, attached is the Novena day intentions and also instructions for the chaplet.

ACT Cancelled in April

Dear students,

If you were registered to take the ACT at Assumption on Saturday, April 4, at Assumption, you should have already received a notification from ACT concerning the plan to reschedule your test date to the June or July test dates. There will not be testing this summer at Assumption due to several factors which include lack of air conditioning and inappropriate seating arrangements available in the few rooms that we could use.

Please check your ACT account actstudent.org to see if you received communications if you are uncertain.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation at this stressful time.
