How awesome to have visitors from our favorite all-girl high school, Trinity! They posted pictures and wrote: "So wonderful to be at Ascension Elementary School today to share the book “She Persisted” in celebration of Womens History Month. We shared the message of persistence, determination, and that no voice is too small and no dream is to big."   Thanks for coming!

Today's Mass for Peace closed with a moving ceremony prepared by the 8th graders. Introductory remarks reminded us of the school tragedy on February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas School. A central lit taper burned as one by one seventeen 8th graders came forward to light a candle. A reader proclaimed the names and details about the lives and hopes of those who died. The school congregation solemnly watched as the candle-bearers placed themselves around the church.

The excitement was palpable in the gym on Friday night as our 6th and 8th grade boys won their games against St Vincent. The  5th boys fought valiantly but were defeated, Grade 7 won over St. John Vianney. We had a great crowd of dedicated parents and fans! There's nothing like the excitement of Pack the Place at Ascension! Go Chargers!
