Veterans Day

Take a moment to remember all those who have served in the Armed Forces, whether in times of conflict or times of peace, and those who serve our country today. The Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard are comprised solely of men and women who volunteered to serve and protect us. Fly our flag proudly, and find an opportunity to thank a veteran or active duty service member.

Soup-er Success!

Ascension School did an amazing job donating non-perishable food items to the Archdiocese of Chicago and Catholic Charities Soup-er Stadium Challenge!  We exceeded the donation goal and were invited to the Catholic Charities Warehouse to help deliver, sort and pack the last delivery of non-perishable food items.  The Ascension School students saw first-hand the warehouse full of non-perishable donations that will provide more than 100,000 meals to Chicagoans in need.
