Housing Forward Overnight Shelter

Housing Forward Logo
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. Parents, this is a good service project opportunity for Confirmation candidates.
Current Volunteer Needs 
We are still in need of volunteers for a few dates, especially in April, 2020. Also, we need an overnight volunteer for the first shift on March 20/21 (10:30 pm-2:00 am).  Please follow the link below and sign up for any spots you are available to fill.  I am relatively new working with this Sign-Up.com tool so if you have any difficulty registering for the spots please let me know.  As always, thank you so much for your service.  God's blessings to you and your families!
