Children’s Envelopes Donation

Oct 28th, 2014

Children Helping Children

Each weekend when the adult collection is taking place you see the youth of Annunciation cheerfully, sometimes skipping, to the communion rail to make a donation in the basket. You may ask yourself where does that money go?

On October 26th Annunciation Parish made a $300 donation to Ascension Place an organization that mission is to support women in crisis or transition by providing them with a stable environment and the opportunity to explore options for their future.

One of the programs at Ascension Place is called St. Anne’s Place. It is an emergency homeless shelter for families in North Minneapolis housing 16 mothers and 34 children. Celebrating holidays and creating fun, memorable experiences provides much needed relief and family fun for mothers and children facing crisis and challenges of homelessness.  Our monetary donation and the Halloween costumes we collected will make this Halloween special. Providing Halloween costumes to St. Anne’s will be an ongoing ministry at Annunciation.
