Peace & Justice

At Ascension Parish, you will find a passionate and caring community committed to extending a helping hand and building awareness of the deep injustices we find in our community and beyond. Ascension parishioners participate in and lead a number of initiatives throughout the year.
 
Peace & Justice Initiatives are coordinated by our parish Peace and Justice committee. The Peace & Justice committee is a vibrant committee focused on many issues/concerns based on Catholic Social Teaching.  Areas of focus include - Immigration, End Violence (Congregations Committed to Peace), Hunger (Community Garden and Summer Lunches/Winter  Coats), The Environment [Honoring Our Mother Earth (HOME Team) and other issues/concerns which arise.  The Peace and Justice committee meets on the second Monday of the month from 7:30p - 9:00p in the Parish Center.  Interested persons may contact: Kelly Hendrickson, peacejust@ascensionoakpark.com, 708.848.0320.
