FAITH at acs

"Let it be known to all who enter here that Jesus Christ is the reason for this school, the unseen but ever-present teacher in all its classes, the model of its faculty, and the inspiration of its students."




At Assumption, Catholic Identity and core values are firmly embedded in our mission and daily activities.

From our morning rosary in the courtyard and weekly school-wide Mass to service opportunities and the regular availability of Adoration and sacraments, faith is interwoven in all aspects of the ACS experience. Our Catholic identity is alive and ever-present on our campus and in the hearts of our students, faculty, and staff. Living in service to each other and our community remains the focus of our efforts in and out of the classroom, and we encourage our students to live each day with an awareness of the true presence of Jesus in our lives. As part of their faith formation at Assumption, students:

  • begin and end each day in prayer
  • attend weekly Mass
  • have regular opportunities for Adoration and Reconciliation
  • participate in campus-wide retreat days for Advent, Lent, and sacramental preparation
  • participate in service opportunities
  • can join Rosary Club
  • have weekly classroom lessons with Sisters

Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother

Assumption is blessed to have the on-campus presence of the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother to aid in the spiritual formation of our entire community. The Home of the Mother is a new movement in the Universal Church founded in 1982. It began with the commitments of six girls (and soon after, a group of boys) who wanted to lead a life of Christian virtue. They felt called to a life of complete surrender to Jesus Christ and Our Blessed Mother, but from within the spirituality of the Home. Since then, the Servant Sisters have grown to more than 200 sisters in five different countries. The Home of the Mother has three missions in the Church: the defense of the Eucharist, the defense of the honor of Our Mother, especially in the privilege of her virginity, and the conquest of the youth for Jesus Christ.

The Servant Sisters came to Assumption Parish and school in 2006 to answer a need for religious sisters in Catholic schools. They supplement religious education in our classrooms, plan school-wide retreat days and activities, and teach CCD classes. They also host summer camps, retreats, pilgrimages, mission trips, and other activities.

Sister Clare Crockett was a Servant Sister of the Home of the Mother for fifteen years and was stationed at Assumption Catholic School from 2006 to 2010. While serving at Assumption's sister school, Holy Family, in Playa Prieta, Ecuador, she died in a 2016 earthquake. Sister Clare was 33 years old at the time. Teachers at Assumption and many alumni remember her joy, musical talents, infectious Irish wit, and her moving vocation story as someone who left a budding career in movies and the world of entertainment to a conversion and decision to follow Christ in an extraordinary way. You can learn more about Sister Clare by watching the documentary All or Nothing: Sister Clare Crockett.

"We can't remain in mediocrity. We have to fight with all our strength against the obstacles that impede us from growing."

-Sister Clare, S.H.M.









Our parish is blessed to have Eucharistic Adoration seven days a week. Eucharistic Adoration is worshiping God as He is present in the Blessed Sacrament. All are encouraged to spend time with Christ in Adoration: to give thanks and praise, pray for special intentions, lay our burdens at His feet, or sit quietly and just rest in His presence. If you have never spent time in the beautiful Adoration Chapel at Assumption, please prayerfully consider spending some time with God.  

“Spending time in front of the Blessed Sacrament affects changes in our souls; spending one hour in adoration every week brings a deeper union with Christ.”

-St. Teresa of Calcutta

The hours on Monday through Friday are midnight-11:59 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. To learn more, please visit:

Sister School

Assumption Parish has a monthly collection to help support our sister school, Holy Family in Playa Prieta, Ecuador. The financial support helps fund scholarships and teacher salaries. After the devastating earthquake in 2016, Assumption contributed to the reconstruction of the school and continues to support the Servant Sisters' efforts to a truly Catholic and challenging academic education at an accessible price for children who are less fortunate.
