Lenten Retreat

Assumption Catholic School students gathered in Church for Divine Liturgy celebrating the feast of the Annunciation. It was also a very special day for two reasons. First, Pope Francis consecrated both Ukraine and Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Secondly, students were introduced to Father Ihor Kolisnyk who gave a beautiful sermon. 
Father Ihor is spending the weekend at the parish hosting a parish mission. Father Ivan told the students they were the first to hear Father Ihor speak. Our third graders were very lucky to represent the students of ACS at the end of the liturgy in presenting yellow and blue carnations to the Blessed Mother. What a wonderful way to show our faith in our Holy Mother on the day we ask Her protection for the people of Ukraine.
