At Ascension we collect food on the third weekend of the month for the Pantry sponsored by the Men's group at St. Martin Parish. Bring your bag(s) of nonperishable grocery items to Mass this weekend and place on the alter during the collection of gifts, or at one of the Church entrances.

Some of you cannot carry heavy bags of groceries. You have the option of giving a check to further this work. Make out the check to "St. Martin Catholic Church," put "pantry" on the "for" line and drop it in the collection basket any time during the month. The men always have to buy more than we donate and this helps them. We are always grateful for whatever you do to help these wonderful men.

If you are a Catholic male over the age of 18 and are interested in joining the Knights of Columbus, we will be having our first-degree initiation ceremony as a group in preparation for the Ascension Council’s formation. Because we have a large group of men, we will be holding two ceremonies to accommodate as many as possible. Feel free to join us in the Pine Room at 7:00 pm on Thursday, August 16. You must complete a form-100 prior to beginning the ceremony.
