Please join us in honoring Ms. Woods

Virtually everyone in our community has heard by now that Ms. Woods is transitioning into a new season in her life. After nearly 30 years as principal at Ascension Catholic School, she’s decided it’s time to move on. We’ve planned two formal opportunities to show Ms. Woods how much we appreciate what she has done for our school and community: Friday, May 6, 6 p.m. reception at the Basilica of Saint Mary in downtown Minneapolis (adults only please) and Wednesday, May 11, 9:30 a.m. school mass at Church of the Ascension (open to anyone who would like to attend).


More information on the Basilica reception here.


Become involved at Ascension!

Ascension Catholic School offers many ways for the community to engage. If you are interesting in volunteering or becoming a donor, you can take a tour specifically designed for donors and volunteers, attend a semi-annual Hope & Progress breakfast, join us at our monthly school mass, and give generously to special annual collections at the Basilica of St. Mary or Holy Name of Jesus.


If you would like to donate or volunteer, call 612 424-6206 or email for more information. If you are interested getting a tour for the purpose of enrolling a child, please call 612 521-3609.
