 Today was our final all-school mass of the year. Our first graders participated as readers, lectors, and petition readers. The story of St. Juan Diego's vision of Mary was presented by three 7th graders, from the vision to the visits to the local Bishop, concluding with the shower of roses from his cloak, now miraculously picturing the Virgin of Guadalupe. After communion, the first graders sang La Guadalupana in Spanish; trey had been prepared by Ms. Bowdy, Mrs. Blatner and Ms. Sefton.

Ms. Robak and Mrs. Coffman have been very busy these last weeks, rehearsing students for the Christmas Concert! The Concert takes place in Ascension church and starts at 7:00 PM on Thursday, December 13. A long-standing Ascension tradition, the concert features songs and carols of the Advent and Christmas season and Scripture readings telling the Christmas story. Ms. Robak says the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders are ready and anxious to sing out – especially the finale! Mrs.

Ascension students were extremely generous today, donating non-perishable food items for the St. Martin's Food Pantry. Grade 4 did an outstanding job providing leadership in readings and intercessions. Student Council managed the collection, boxed the items and helped with delivery to the pantry.  See our Gallery and a video.
