Have your children do their Christmas shopping at Ascension's annual Children's Christmas Boutique from 10am - 1pm in the school Pine Room (enter off Van Buren Street). This adorable event runs at the same time as the much loved Cookie Walk. Come and see the Pine Room transformed into a gift store where each child can shop for the loved ones on his/her Christmas list. Big kids are available to help your child shop and find affordable Christmas gifts for everyone on their list.

During this month of November we pray in a special way for those we love who have passed from this life to the next. All are invited to inscribe the names of their deceased loved ones in the Book of the Dead, near the Pascal Candle by the Saint Joseph altar. If you have a photograph of a deceased loved one, and would like to place it in one of the designated areas in the church, please feel free to do so.  Seeing these pictures renews our bonds with them and reminds us to pray for the repose of their souls, even as we seek their intercession on our behalf.
