Feb 18

About 100 of our religious education students, their parents, and catechists just celebrated Mardi Gras. After games and crafts and cake (lots of cake), we processed outside, led by Tim on the trombone and Tom on the trumpet, to burn last year's palms. Deacon Joe led us in prayer. Michael and Ryan will grind the ashes when they cool. Ascension is ready for Ash Wednesday!

Sunday classes resumes January 4, 2015
Tuesday classes resume January 13, 2015
Wednesday classes resume January 14, 2015

The reason Sunday classes resume a week earlier than the other classes, is because there is no class on January 25.  January 25 is Ascension School Open House.
