Children's Lenten Project "Welcome Home" to Support Housing Forward

Over the past 25 years, many Ascension families have volunteered to help provide emergency shelter through Housing Forward’s PADS program.  Many have wondered how we can help people move from the shelters and into permanent housing. This year’s Children’s Lenten Project (CLP) is going to do just that! The details:

Our Lenten alms will help move five families out of the shelter and into homes through Housing Forward’s Supportive Housing Program. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to furnish five apartments with items that will transform them into homes. Let us Welcome Home our brothers and sisters in Christ this Lent. Go here to read about Suzanne's story and how Housing Forward helped her move out of homelessness.

Religious Education students and Ascension School students should have received packets in their classrooms at the start of Lent.  All families are invited to return your almsigiving to church anytime during Holy Week. You may also drop off your donation at the Parish Center or the school. Religious Education students may bring them when the return for class after Easter. Thank you!
