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 JUNE

PENTECOST (JUNE 8)  The Holy Spirit came and dwelt in the people gathered together.  They began to teach others about the risen Christ, and each person heard them in their own tongue.

ST. BARNABAS (June 11)  St. Barnabas accompanied St. Paul on his first missionary journey. He founded the church at Antioch and was martyred in Cyprus.

TRINITY SUNDAY (JUNE 15)  On this day, the Church commemorates the one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

NATIVITY OF ST. JOHN BAPTIST (June 24)  We celebrate the nativity of the Baptist because he was the forerunner of Christ's ministry.

STS. PETER AND PAUL (June 30)  This day commemorates the two most influential of the Apostles.  They represented the conservative and liberal wings of the Church (even then there were conflicts!)
