DID YOU KNOW?

DID YOU KNOW?  As an industry, Human Trafficking generates $150 billion per year, and it’s happening right here, right now, in Jacksonville. 

Human Trafficking is form of modern-day slavery that subjects women, children and men to force, fraud or coercion for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor.

Assumption Respect Life Committee cordially invites the community to a Wine, Cheese, and Conversation with Kristin Keen of Rethreaded Inc. of Jacksonville February 20, 2021 at 630 pm in Kohls Hall at Assumption Catholic Church.  Kristin will address the ways to address this form of contemporary slavery at the grassroots level, right here and right now, in our community. Items from the Rethreaded retail store found at rethreaded.com will be available for purchase. For more information, contact Mary Anne Hashem at maryannehashem@gmail.com.

Come join us, and thank you for all you do, FOR LIFE!

The Respect Life Committee supports all human life and dignity issues. 

Our meetings are on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 6:15 pm in Kohls Hall.  See you there – thank you for all you do, for LIFE!

We will be planning for next year’s March for Life both in DC (https://marchforlife.org/) and locally (https://www.marchforlifestaugustine.com/).  For more information, contact Tony Grado at 904-509-6461 or Ann O’Keeffe Rodgers at okeefferodgers@gmail.com.

Assumption Boy Scout Troop 106

Calling all young men and their fathers.  Now more than ever, there is a critical need to secure our future by developing capable, confident, God-fearing young men who will influence our society in positive ways.  We aim to do that at Troop 106, where our Scouts earn the rank of Eagle at 5 times the national rate; and we do it while having a ton of fun fishing, camping, hiking, skiing, shooting, boating and volunteering.  We meet weekly On Mondays in the Troop Hut near the back of the church parking lot from 7:00 – 8:30 pm.  See parish bulletin for additional details.
