Mass of St. Luke

St. Luke the Evangelist was a Greek physician and follower of St. Paul. He is the patron saints of physicians, surgeons, artists,students, and bachelors. As one of the four evangelists, his symbol is an ox or bull. DO you see the small winged bull in the corner of the picture? Take a look at Ascension's ambo, too. The mosaic of Jesus is surrounded by four stone carvings; can you find the bull of St. Luke? Ascension school will celebrate St. Luke at a special 9:30 Mass on Wednesday, October 18 — St. Luke's feast day.

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.
