The faculty and principal spent a beautiful morning at St. Alfonso Retreat House in Long Branch. The teachers enjoyed two spiritually uplifting discussions on the Church and Ukrainian Rite led by Father Paul Makar. Father Paul is the priest at St. Michaels Ukrainian Catholic Church in Cherry Hill, as well as an alumni of Assumption Catholic School, class of ’86.  The teachers were able to receive the sacrament of penance and also enjoyed a prayer service outside in front of the icon of the Blessed Mother.  It was a rejuvenating morning filled with prayer, learning and fellowship.
