On June 8, 2018 the Assumption Catholic School community bid farewell to the Missionary Sisters of the Mother of God at the Divine Liturgy ( Mass) and a reception held in their honor. At the reception Sisters were honored with a slide s featuring them over the fifty years they have been a part ACS.
The celebration was an opportunity for the school to come together and show our appreciation for Sr. Yosaphata and Sr. Thomas and all the Missionary Sisters for the work they have done over 50 years at ACS. Earlier this month they announced that they will be returning to their motherhouse in Philadelphia on July 1, 2018 due to decreased vocations and a desire to strengthen community life. While giving her farewell speech Sr. Yosaphata thanked the students, staff members for their role in making her spiritual journey at Assumption school a very enjoyable and memorable one. On this occasion , Fr. Ivan thanked sisters for being an “icon of God’s presence” in Perth Amboy and “a light shining in the darkness” to so many parishioners and students of the Assumption family.
