Our Community Newsletter for Assumption Families, Students, Faculty, Alumni & Friends
May 5, 2019
Dear Assumption Family,
This weekend I had the pleasure of witnessing our second grade students receive their first Holy Communion. This was a beautiful ceremony and one of the most important sacraments in the Catholic church.
Our students have now become united with Christ and the greater Catholic community as a whole. The receiving of the body of Christ will nourish their spirit and soul to live the way Jesus instructed.
As Father Cipriani expressed in his final blessing on Saturday, "The word Eucharist means thanksgiving." As our students receive the Eucharist they share the bread of life and express their thanks for all the good things that God provides to them.
And as we in the Assumption community receive the Eucharist we should be mindful how thankful we are for our blessings, especially the children you share with us or school community.
Congratulations and God bless our communicates!

In and Around Assumption
We are proud to announce that we will be changing our food service for next year in the Cafeteria to better serve our children. We thank Chef Georgia for her time with us and wish her well in the future. Starting in the Fall, we will be partnering with Vazzy's/Catamount Food Service. They will be doing our Welcome Back Picnic prior to school complimentary to showcase their product and be introduced to our families. Thank you Vazzy's and Johnny Vazzano for this partnership and welcome to the family!
