Community Outreach exists for two primary purposes: to allocate funds to local ministries that share the gospel and help those in need, and to foster involvement by parishioners at Ascension with the same ministries it supports. We seek not only to serve in Christ’s name, but also to build relationships and seek justice and reconciliation in our city. Outreach is funded both through the regular church budget and through generous donations from individual parishioners. Questions? Please contact Deacon Honey Becker ([email protected]). Our Outreach Committee meets every month to discuss how best to serve our community.

Local supported Outreach Ministries include:

  • Prison Ministry – This team of Ascension members visit those who are in prison, offering hope, a listening ear, practical support, and Christ’s love.
  • Dodi Groves Breast Cancer Foundation – The mission to continuously address the many breast cancer-related needs of the people of Acadiana. The vision is to have assisted in the eradication of breast cancer and its effects.
  • Faith House – provides assistance and support for women and children suffering domestic violence.
  • Aid for Immigrants – Many Ascension members serve this vital ministry, offering aid primarily to women sent through a local detention center.
  • United Christian Outreach – an interfaith program that provides food and clothing to those in our community who are in need.
