Confidential prayer requests for the sick

Confidential prayer requests for the sick will be gathered at the entrances of the Church this January through February 11th, World Day of the Sick, which was founded by Pope John II and coincides with the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.     Pope Francis stated in a message on World Day of the Sick,  "that, just like “Mary’s maternal vocation for all humanity, the Church, with its long standing tradition of service to the sick, keeps its own maternal vocation to the needy and to the sick".  Petitions will be included in the intercessory prayers at the 8 am Mass on the 11th.  Ask for prayers for yourself, or imitate the friends of the sick man in the Gospel of Mark, 2:4, who brought their friend to  Jesus.  Prayer cards are available, also at entrances, for the novena to Our Lady of Lourdes.  Novenas beginning on February 3 will conclude on the feast day.

Assumption School Chili Cook-off!

The Million Dollar Fund Raiser Returns to Assumption School!

The Catholic Schools Raffle returns this winter to Assumption Catholic School in Hibbing, giving you the opportunity to turn $5 into a brand-new car or $20,000 in cash while supporting your local Catholic school.

Starting January 17, students from Assumption  will join students from 89 other schools across Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota in selling the $5 tickets. Each ticket purchased gives ticket buyers the opportunity to win a 2020 Buick Encore (or $20,000 in cash), a $5,000 Dream Vacation,(3) Breezy Point Resort Packages, (4) 65" 4K Smart TVs, (4) Wisconsin Dells Gift Cards,(5) Apple Watches, (6) Cabela's Gift Cards, (10) Amazon Gift Cards,(15) Visa Gift Cards. Best of all, every penny of every ticket sold stays at Assumption  thanks to the Raffle’s sole sponsor Catholic United Financial. The St. Paul-based company provides all the prizes and promotion materials for the Raffle at no cost to the participating schools. Additionally, there will also be an Assumption Catholic School drawing for anyone that purchases 10 tickets under the same name. For every ten tickets purchased, one entry will be put in for prizes of $1,000 cash, $500 cash, and $250 cash! There are incentives for parents and students to sell tickets as well.

“Catholic United’s mission since our founding 142 years ago has included supporting Catholic education, and we couldn’t be happier or prouder to support our schools with the Catholic Schools Raffle,” explained Catholic United President Harald Borrmann. “Since the program started, we have invested nearly one million dollars in the Raffle because we understand how this unique fundraiser greatly benefits the students and their teachers.”

Now in its eleventh year, the Catholic Schools Raffle has raised over $8.5 million for Catholic schools in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. This year, Catholic United is challenging the 89 participating schools to collectively raise $1 million during the six-week selling period. To help reach this goal, Assumption  hopes to sell enough tickets to raise $35,000.00 . The money raised allows schools like Assumption  to provide tuition assistance, update technology systems, or to cover the cost of special learning opportunities like guest speakers and field trips.

Ticket sales begin January 17th and run thru March 1st. Tickets are only available at participating schools. The Grand Prize drawing ceremony takes place at 11:00 a.m. (CST) on Thursday, March 12th at the Catholic United Financial Home Office in St. Paul, MN. Raffle updates and a full list of participating schools can be found on Facebook at www.facebook.com/CatholicSchoolsRaffle.
