At Ascension we collect food on the third weekend of the month for the Pantry sponsored by the Men's group at St. Martin Parish. Some of you cannot carry heavy bags of groceries. You have the option of giving a check to further this work. Make out the check to "St. Martin Catholic Church," put "pantry" on the "for" line and drop it in the collection basket any time during the month. The men always have to buy more than we donate and this helps them. We are always grateful for whatever you do to help these wonderful men.
