Nov. 20 - Dec. 12 CONNECT GIVING TREE

We are once again supporting families who are less fortunate in the 2021 holiday season.

This is the 35th year of offering and facilitating activities in which Ascension can share Christmas blessings with those less fortunate.


Due to Covid-19, CONNECT activities for this year are limited to the Giving Tree.

The tree will be up in the church by Thursday, November 18th. Stop by and select a gift or gifts as you are able. We will not have the online Giving Tree this season. Gifts that can be found on our Giving Tree include needs of the following two agencies:

§ Help One Child: https://helponechild.org/

§ Catholic Charities of our County: https://www.catholiccharitiesscc.org/?locale=en


PLEASE NOTE: Due to the necessity of delivering gifts to these agencies, CONNECT must have the Giving Tree gifts returned by Sunday, December 12 @ 6:00 pm.

To accommodate this need, the Giving Tree will be available beginning November 18th.
