Pope Francis has declared that our global Catholic Church will celebrate a Holy Year of Mercy from Dec. 8, 2015, the feast of the Immaculate Conception, through Nov. 20, 2016, the feast of Christ the King.
Let's all participate! The Ascension Parish Council will offer suggestions based on the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. One action each month will be a prayer; and one will be an action of mercy for our Mother Earth.
The first action for the first week of the year of mercy will be a parish wide toy drive, to benefit Catholic Charities “St. Nicholas Project”. Please drop off NEW (not used) toys for newborns to kids aged 18; the greatest need is for toys for children ages 10 to 15.
Please bring new, unwrapped toys to the Rectory by December 20th
