This weekend we celebrate Catholic Schools Week, a time to stop and appreciate the gift our parish has in being home to a Catholic School as a primary part of passing on the faith to our youth. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who contribute to the support of our parish school. It is a real sacrifice, to be sure, but the sacrifice is well worth it. Our principal, Mr. Richard Kaliszewski’s firm yet gentle leadership ensures that our educational program is top-notch. Our faculty and staff are all well-educated and trained in their fields to ensure the best and most up-to-date teaching methods. And our student body is well behaved, courteous, and hospitable. As pastor, I appreciate the partnership between St. Albert the Great and Assumption Academy and what it means to our parish and the students who are educated here. As we celebrate the achievements of Catholic Schools this week and the values and good habits they impart, let us resolve to give our support to this worthy ministry of our parishes.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 29, 2023 THERE IS AN OPEN HOUSE AT THE ACADEMY FROM 10:30—11:30AM. There is also a COMPLIMENTARY BREAKFAST in the Family Center during the Open House. Come and see the wonderful things going on at St. Albert the Great at Assumption Academy. We really have something to be proud of!!

This Thursday, February 2nd, is Candlemas Day. Candles will be blessed at the 8:30am Mass. Please bring any candles you want blessed to this Mass.

 Friday, February 3rd, is the Feast of St. Blaise, known for his intercession for those with diseases of the throat. Blessing of throats will be at all Masses this day and after the Sunday Masses.
