Ascension Church

A blessing for the Visitation Sisters


The Ascension Parish community celebrated with the sisters of the Visitation Monastery and honored them for their 25 years of service on the North Side.


Each of the sisters – Katherine, Mary Margaret, Virginia, Suzanne, Karen and Mary Frances – participated in the mass in a special way.  After the mass, pastor Fr. Michael O’Connell, parish administrator Patty Stromen and the entire community gave the sisters a blessing and thanked them for the wonderful presence in the neighborhood.


Here are some scenes from the morning:
