Divine Mercy Sunday Celebrations

More on Divine Mercy Sunday Other Notes:
  • Sunday Bulletin and Father Eamon's Column
  • Three options for Daily Mass (Pope Francis, EWTN and Word on Fire Chapel) are posted on our Parish Covid-19 Response page
  • Father Eamon and Father Martin are available if someone needs to talk about something, for confession and for the sacrament of the sick. They will sit 6 feet apart.
  • Our weekly Mass is taped on Tuesday. Please keep this in mind when you join us for Mass. Things may happen between Tuesday and Sunday which we would not be able to address in our homily or Prayers of the Faithful.
  • Please be aware that we do depend on you to help us get the word out about our weekly Mass and the info on our website. We have found out from our calling of parishioners that not all of our people are aware of our weekly Mass and the communications on our website So please help us get the word out.

Children's Hunger Project & Outreach Update

We are happy to report that the Children's Hunger Project Team at Ascension continues to pack and distribute 400 meal packets each week to the Brevard Public Schools food distribution sites at Creel and Sabal. This is 4x the usual 100 we normally give out. As of this Friday we will have given out 2,200 meals since the end of March!

That is the Good News and it is Great News.

The challenging news is that this wonderful Outreach Ministry is in need of more funds. We will give $1,000 from our parish tithe. Fr Eamon is going to give $250. If you are in a position  to help send your big or small donation to please send you’re your donation to the Children's Hunger Project directly either online at  thechildrenshungerproject.org or by mailing donations to:

We are very grateful to Mary Blucker and her volunteers for coordinating this wonderful outreach to children in our backyard.

Thank you also to all who are continuing to support our Food Pantry through food and monetary donations.

Thank you to the Knights of Columbus in the United States of America who are giving $1 million dollars to Food Banks around the country and providing volunteers for relief efforts. Our parish Knights are an amazing part of this national organization.
