Join us as we discuss "Being Mortal" by Atul Gawande. Dr. Gawande brings his medical expertise as a surgeon and professor of public health to the topics surrounding end of life decisions. This book was discussed widely through the library's One Book-One Oak Park series. We hope to add some spiritual reflection to this issue.
Each year, Catholic Choirs throughout the United States are encouraged by the National Association of Pastoral Musicians to offer a musical event in honor of Saint Cecilia, the patroness of music. Ascension's Saint Cecilia Sing was presented on Sunday, November 12 at 7:00 PM.
The Ascension Choir and Schola, led by Director of Music David Anderson shared an hour of songs of praise and thanksgiving, joined by a string quartet and including Scripture and prayers.
A free-will offering was collected and shared with Housing Forward and the Oak Park Food Pantry.

Don't forget your bag of nonperishable food items! On the 3rd Sunday of the month at all Masses we collect nonperishable food items for St. Martin food pantry, which is sponsored by their Men's Group. If you are unable to bring in a bag of groceries but would like to contribute, we invite you to write a check made out to "St. Martin Catholic Church," write "pantry" on the memo line and place it in the collection basket any time during the month. The Men's Group always has to buy more than we donate so all donations are greatly appreciated!
