Children in Ascension’s English-speaking faith formation classes help make sure parishioners who are too ill to attend mass know they are not forgotten. One of the ways they do this is by designing and sending holiday cards and messages.
“They might not even know these parishioners, but they realize they are still part of God’s family and their church family,” said Mary Majkozak, director of English-speaking Religious Education for the North Side partnership that includes Ascension, St. Bridget and Our Lady of Victory.
Teachers and students pray for the people on their lists as well. The children receive beautiful thank you notes from many who enjoyed getting the cards.
