Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy


Pope Francis has declared that the Universal Catholic Church
will observe a Jubilee Year of Mercy from December 8, 2015, to
November 20, 2016. The pope made the declaration in front of
the Holy Door of St. Peter's Basilica. The Holy Door is usually
bricked up, but is opened during a Jubilee year.

WHAT IS THE JUBILEE YEAR OF MERCY?
Jubilee years occur about every 25 years—the last occurred in 2000. These holy years                          
are filled with special celebrations and pilgrimages, strong calls for conversion and
repentance, and the opportunity to experience God's grace through the sacraments,
especially confession.

WHERE IN SCRIPTURE DO WE LEARN ABOUT MERCY?
Jesus' message of mercy shines all through the Gospels, challenging society and the law
to see the divine justice present in mercy. His greatest parables tell of an ungrateful
steward forgiven of his debts, who tragically fails to show the same forgiveness to
his debtors (Matthew 18:21–35); of a wasteful son who carelessly spends his father's
inheritance, only to be embraced by his father when he penitently returns home (Luke
15:11–32). In his ministry, the Lord reached out to the hated tax collector (Luke 19:1–10)
and rescued the accused adulteress (John 8:2–11), reconciling them with society and
with God—and with themselves. This is our calling.

Debate - Champions



The Assumption Debate Team marched into Massey High School this Saturday for the Massey Invitational.  Teams from Windsor, Essex County, Chatham and Sarnia competed through 6 rounds of debates.  When the dust settled, Assumption's Evan Tanovich and Uyger Tepe emerged as the champions.  

This is a huge accomplishment, as these 2 grade 10 students were facing senior students most of the day.  

This duo is now 10-0 on the season!





Model UN trip



The ACS Model United Nations team returned with their teacher-moderator, Mr. Paul Sobol, from Lansing Michigan over the weekend after another successful conference. A special congratulations goes out to Virginia Facecchia for representing Jordan in the Arab League. Virginia received top honours in her council for her role in addressing human trafficing, drug smuggling and the challenges presented by the self-proclaimed Islamic State. She, along with the rest of the team, competed against hundreds of seasoned delegates from high schools across Michigan.

All team members shared their diverse knowledge and skills over two long days of sessions and left conference participants with a genuine impression of Canadian compassion and diplomacy.   

A special thank you to Mackenzie Habash for her assistance in preparing the team and for her role in representing the United Kingdom in the Security Council.

The team looks forward to their next conference challenge in the pursuit of global peace.
