Please join all those who were initiated at the Easter Vigil as well as those who completed Sacraments of Initiation at the 5 PM Mass on Saturday, April 21. Dressed in their Easter White, each one will offer a two sentence word of witness to the community, identifying areas of gratitude which helped sustain them in their journey of faith. After Mass, please join us for refreshments to celebrate with them in the choir room on the Van Buren side of church. This is your opportunity to congratulate them if you were unable to attend the Easter Vigil.

Did you know we have a wonderful Community Garden behind our Parish Center?

Ascension Community Gardeners gather to plan in January, repair raised beds in March, plant seeds in April and May and harvest on Tuesdays all summer and early autumn. Produce is given to the St Martin de Porres Food Pantry. New gardeners are always welcome and no experience is necessary. This is a fun activity for families. Contact John Owens at or 708 846-1827 for more information.
