Governor, Archbishop visit Ascension

Archbishop Hebda and Governor Mark Dayton recently visited Ascension School to see firsthand the operations of a successful inner-city Catholic School. They heard a couple selections from the school choir, an introduction to The Ascension Way from Interim Principal Benito Matias, and visited several classrooms. Gov. Dayton got down on the floor with some first graders and answered their questions about meeting President Obama and other topics. The governor had an opportunity to ask questions of recent and past Ascension alumni, parents of scholars, Friends of Ascension Catholic School board members and teachers in a wide-ranging round-table discussion
