Here I am, Lord.  Send me...

Are you looking for a great way to put your faith into action?  Ascension Parishioners staff Housing Forward’s overnight shelter at St. John’s in Forest Park on Friday nights and Saturday mornings from September through May, and we are in need of volunteers.  The shelter provides dinner, a bed, and breakfast for guests. Volunteers help serve food, socialize with the guests and clean up in the morning. 

We need 3 volunteers for the Evening Shift (6:30-10:30 pm) this coming Friday, November 8, and additional volunteers are needed for the evening shift (6:30-10:30 pm) on the 1st and 2nd Fridays of the month from now until May. We also need volunteers for the Saturday after Thanksgiving (11/30) from 5:00- 7:30 am. 

Please contact Anne Frueh at or 847-528-1352 if you are able to serve. (Please note, if you tried calling before 9/10, you were calling the wrong number. This is the correct phone number).

Parents, this is a service project opportunity for Confirmation candidates!
