Mission Day is an annual event to raise awareness of our baptismal call to mission and collect funds for the Church’s mission efforts. Ascension School’s founding nuns, the Ursuline Sisters, started this fundraiser in 1957 with a few games on card tables in the gym. It has grown to be Ascension School’s longest running and one of the most memorable events of the school year for generation after generation of students. All parishioners, especially school families, are welcome to celebrate 62 years of supporting the missions through prayer and play!

Parents should be aware that Mission Day is a regular school day for Preschoolers!

l For grades K-8, it is an out-of-uniform school day with normal school hours.

l The day starts with a prayer service at 9:00 am in the church to pray for the missions and is filled with fun carnival games, a fabulous raffle, pizza lunch, movie and popcorn and, of course, the incomparable Cake Walk and Goldfish Toss.

Proceeds support the mission work of the URSULINE SISTERS (who staffed our school for 74 YEARS) and the mission efforts of Ascension’s parish, this year’s Ascension Church Children's Lenten Mission. and Ascension School.  Over the past nine years, Mission Day has raised about $62,765 towards these valuable projects!
