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 and volunteers help serve food, socialize with the guests and clean up in the morning. Volunteers can serve the evening, overnight or morning shift. Parents, this is a good service project
opportunity for Confirmation candidates.
