Remembrance Day – Lest We Forget

On behalf of Assumption University, Dr. John Cappucci, Interim Principal, would like to honour all the men and women who bravely served our country in defence of freedom. In particular, we remember the former students of Assumption College who gave their lives in World War II (1939-45).

Message from Dr. John Cappucci, Interim Principal

Dear Friends,

On behalf of Assumption University, I warmly wish you and your families a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. This holiday has an array of traditional activities from apple picking to watching popular sporting events to sumptuous meals with family and friends. In addition, Thanksgiving provides us with an opportunity to reflect and give thanks to God for the many blessings we have in our lives.

“The secret of happiness is to live moment by moment and to thank God for what He is sending us every day in His goodness.” – St. Gianna Beretta Molla

Yours Truly,

John Cappucci, Ph.D., Interim Principal, Assumption University
