Ascension congratulates our 2nd grade students who are receiving First Eucharist the weekends of May 6-7 and May 13-14. Each child has made a personal banner to make this blessed occasion. Please stop at the front bulletin board of the school to see how each child has designed his or her special memento of the day.
Students preparing for First Eucharist spent Saturday morning, April 29 together. With their catechists and parent volunteers, they learned how bread is made and each child shaped a small loaf for his or her family. First communion masses are the first two weekends of May. God bless each one of you!
