2020 Christmas Angels Project

Christmas Angels Project gift imageThe time for our Ascension Christmas Angels Project has arrived!
Our beneficiaries – St. Martin de Porres Parish, the Quinn Community Center of St. Eulalia in Maywood, the Franciscan Outreach Center ministering to the homeless, and Ascension families in need – are more than ever counting on the generosity of Ascension parishioners. These times have been so painful for all of us. 
In respecting the COVID-19 restrictions, our donations this year will be in the form of gift cards.
There are 2 ways to donate: 
  1. Donate cash or check to Ascension and we will purchase gift cards in $25 denominations for Jewel, Walmart or Target. To do this you must email Mary Fitch at with the amount you would like to purchase, then drop cash or check made out to ‘Ascension Church’ thru the secured parish center front door mail slot. This option is both convenient for you and provides a financial perk for Ascension as the stores will give back to us a small donation for each gift card purchased.
  1. Purchase gift cards of any denomination on your own and drop them in the parish center mail slot.
This program will begin Sunday, November 1st, and all donations must be received by December 4th. We appreciate that this is not as fun or personalized as choosing a toy for a child, but our recipients are more in need than ever. Please be generous.
