Ascension is planning to participate in Church League Basketball, a fun yet competitive organization for high school girls.  The season runs from April 8 through late May, with 1-2 practices and 1 game every week (6 regular games plus playoffs), with most games taking place on Saturday nights in the western suburbs.  There is a fee for playing, although the exact cost will vary based on interest. We’re hoping to field a freshman-senior team.

Ascension's High School Youth Group is back in the swing of things!  We've had our first meeting this past Sunday in the Pine Room.  We had a blast eating pizza and playing fun games all the while learning about our Catholic faith. Below are some pictures from Sunday's group!  I hope that you might consider joining us this Sunday in the Gym for more fun, food, and faith!
