Youth Group Kickoff was a Blast!!!

Ascension's High School Youth Group is back in the swing of things!  We've had our first meeting this past Sunday in the Pine Room.  We had a blast eating pizza and playing fun games all the while learning about our Catholic faith. Below are some pictures from Sunday's group!  I hope that you might consider joining us this Sunday in the Gym for more fun, food, and faith!

A Prayer for Recovery After Disaster

God our Father, in the wake of disaster, visit our places of desolation with your consolation.
Bring strength to the weary and courage to those who feel overwhelmed.
We believe that you hold our concerns in your Fatherly care, and that you entrust us to one another as sisters and brothers.
Mobilize your people near and far to feed the hungry, shelter the displaced, and protect those in deepest poverty.
As we rebuild what is ruined, may we recover together as a stronger community. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
