OUTREACH MINISTRIES

Gateway Children’s Services:  Ascension is working weekly with the Gateway children on building life skills, which includes the children preparing dinner once a month after the Wednesday Evening service.  There is always an on-going need of the following items for the Gateway Teens: socks, undershirts (large and extra large), twin sheets, towels, pencils, drawing pads, journals. PG-13 movies, games, puzzles, puzzle books, soap, shampoo, lotion, and hair elastics

M&M Food Pantry: They always need food, donations, and substitute workers. They especially need baby food, canned fruit, dried beans, Spaghetti O’s, tuna fish, and tuna helper dinners and powdered milk.  Please continue to bring your offerings for the plate and our basket.

MAJOR FEASTS FOR MAY


STS. PHILIP AND JAMES (MAY 1)   Philip and James were Apostles. Philip ministered in Scythia and Phrygia, where he was martyred. James, son of Alphaeus, ministered but nothing is known about where, or how he died.

ASCENSION (MAY 29)   On this day, our Lord's resurrected body returned to Heaven.  This made it possible for the Holy Spirit to come and dwell in humans to guide them.

VISITATION OF MARY (MAY 31)   Soon after the Holy Spirit told Mary that she was to bear the Messiah, she went to visit her cousin Elizabeth. When Elizabeth recognized that Mary was to bear the Savior, Mary was moved to recite the beautiful Magnificat.
