The Monarchs are Coming! Learn How We Can Welcome Them!

Millions of Monarch Butterflies huddle together in fir trees in Mexico over the winter. Soon, they head north to where we live, laying eggs along the way. Milkweed is the only plant that their caterpillars can eat. You can help them by planting it in your yard.

 Join us after all Masses on April 10 and 11

Look for the tables and posters after Mass, and learn all about these wonderful creatures from Ascension students and HOME Team members. Take home FREE milkweed seeds and information. Want to learn more? This week, check out:
