Our campus ministry program is committed to the words of St. Paul, "You have been called to look after something precious. Guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in you." … that “something precious” is the spiritual growth and development of the whole AHS community.
Freedom to be… allegiance to self, community, God… Integrity matters… taking care of the possible and Trusting God with the impossible… hope even in the darkest times…
Campus Ministry here at Assumption encourages and assists students, faculty, and staff to grow personally during their years here. Assumption is the only school in Louisville that has a four-year program of overnight retreats; this means students can go as freshmen!
Required and elective theology classes broaden and deepen understanding of personal spirituality as well as Catholic tradition. Service is integral to the community; the Class of 2013 performed 37,663 hours of service. Optional mission trips, truly life-changing events, are open to seniors every year.
Additionally, the community gathers for worship to begin each year, to end each year, on feast days and holidays, and other meaningful times to praise and thank our Creator God for all our blessings. We are committed to living our FAITH.
