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 always 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. Volunteers can serve the evening, overnight or morning shift. Please contact Anne Frueh at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-523-1352 for more information, or look for her in the East Ave vestibule this Sunday, August 25 after all morning Masses.
(Parents, this is a service project opportunity for Confirmation candidates!)
