Rebuilding the Church's South Entrance

Thank you to all who have contributed to The Ascension Campaign, which is making possible the improvements to Ascension Catholic School and Church of the Ascension!

On Friday, April 1, Pastor Dale Korogi and Administrator Patty Stromen added their signatures and Ascension’s wonderful slogans to the main beam of the new South entrance to the church.  It will be hoisted into place on April 4.

This video provides an inside look at the work being done to build a new south entrance to the church, which will include an elevator to the church basement. We hope that when we wrap up the Ascension Campaign, we will have the funds to create a welcoming gathering space on the lower level.

 

 

New, energy efficient boilers have been installed in the Club Building to heat the school and club. Get a peek at the old before dismantling and the new, smaller models:
