I was fortunate to be on the Centennial Committee for the last year. My grandparents moved into Ascension Parish 1918, my dad attended, most of my siblings and I attended and my nephew is there now. I walked in the 5K Sat am and attended the All School Alum reunion on Sat night which was fantastic!! Great turn out from our class! Sun awesome, too. Wonderful weekend of celebration!!! Thanks for a Century of Faith in Education!

I graduated from Ascension in 1969. I went to the celebrationa at the school on Saturday night. We did not have a very good turn out from our class, but I really enjoyed catching up with alums from other classes.

Congratulations to all Ascensionites. I was born, baptised and married at Ascension and attended school there in 1944. What a great, active parish it has been and is now under our wonderful Fr Larry McNally. Thanks for the pictures.
