POLO Gives Back (scarf activity) -- November 11 after 9 am Mass (Meet in the back of church. POLO families will be tying warm winter scarves around trees after 9 am Mass. This is a simple yet visual way for our kids to see how a small act can mean so much to a stranger. 

We are also seeking donations for this project! If you are a knitter, feel free to make a scarf or two for someone in need. If you are not a knitter, feel free to purchase warm winter scarves for our project. All donations can be dropped off at the Parish Center (in a bag marked POLO - they will get it to the POLO mailbox).


Ascension Blue Tie Auction -- November 17 at 6 pm -- Ascension Gym. If you are interested in attending the annual Blue Tie Auction and would like to sit with other POLO parents, indicate POLO on your RSVP. And get ready to bid! ;)



Children's Liturgy of the Word -- Every Sunday at the 9 am Mass -- All children ages 4 - 8 are invited to participate, where they will experience the Word in age appropriate language while you can reflect on the mass in the main sanctuary. If you are interested in volunteering for this ministry, please email clw@ascensionoakpark.
