Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Community has been a long-time supporter of Ascension School, which is located in North Minneapolis. This is a neighborhood where eighty percent of kindergarteners enter into the school unprepared for kindergarten—many of which do not speak English—and 86 percent of students qualify for free or reduced lunch, which is a state marker for poverty. Holy Name of Jesus is part of a core group of organizations who donate their time, talent and monetary assistance to this school.
