Today after the 5:00 mass, Mrs. Kathy Walsh, family and friends gathered near the statue of Mary. Last fall, a young flowering crab tree was planted in hopes it would thrive in this location. Fr. Hurlbert spoke of Deacon Joe Walsh, in whose memory the tree was planted. Today the tree and a plaque were blessed with Holy Water and the Our Father was recited. Ascension was blessed to have Deacon Walsh serve here for nine years. He had attended Ascension School, and was a parishioner for 66 years. Look for Deacon Walsh's tree behind Mary on the East Avenue side.
