following Advent evening prayer at 7 PM
God our Father, in the wake of disaster, visit our places of desolation with your consolation.
Bring strength to the weary and courage to those who feel overwhelmed.
We believe that you hold our concerns in your Fatherly care, and that you entrust us to one another as sisters and brothers.
Mobilize your people near and far to feed the hungry, shelter the displaced, and protect those in deepest poverty.
As we rebuild what is ruined, may we recover together as a stronger community. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Our vision is to cultivate a stronger community of Men at Ascension. We welcome all Men associated with the community (no matter to what extent or background). Our goals are simple...create fraternity and fellowship through fun activities. We host a number of initiatives to drive that mission. We hope you will sign up to learn about upcoming events and join us at a few! Sign Up!
We are delighted to welcome Mrs. Maryanne Polega to our Ascension family. In her letter "From the Principal" Mrs. Polega says, "I am honored to serve as the next principal of Ascension School. This year marks Ascension’s 105th year of providing quality Catholic education in the spirit of love, kindness and respect. Thank you for the opportunity to lead a school that has such a rich history and tradition" Read even more about Mrs.
