AHS Parent Prayer Group

Please join us for a special prayer opportunity at Assumption High School.   Each Thursday at 9:00 AM, our entire Assumption family (parents, grandparents, alumni, etc.) is invited to gather in the AHS Chapel for prayer.  We pray for the students (each by name, one class per week), pray for the 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 us, 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.  

If and when you can join, just simply use the main entrance, register in the school office and find your way to the Chapel…if you aren’t yet familiar with AHS, the office staff or other parents will guide the way!  And PLEASE do not let praying the Rosary deter you – we are all at different levels with this powerful prayer and can learn and grow together.
