Please join Ascension’s Common Home Ministry in celebrating the Feast Day of St. Francis, the Patron Saint of Ecology! We will be helping to care for the gift of God’s creation by cleaning up at Quivira Park and the stream and trail areas adjacent to it.
Date: Saturday, October 13 (no rain date)
Time: 9:30-11 AM
Location: Meet at the shelter at Quivira Park - 11901 Quivira Road Overland Park, KS 66213
You will receive an assigned area to clean up, along with gloves and trash bags, provided by the City of Overland Park.
Kids can earn one service hour (non-corporal)
Treats provided afterwards!
What to bring:
- Your Ascension Volunteer T-shirt, or pick one up at the park!
- Your own refillable water bottle from home (coolers with water will be provided.)
- Appropriate clothing and foot ware
There are plenty of open and easy-to-navigate park and trail areas for all ages to participate in cleaning. However, if you’re willing to clean around streams and more heavily wooded areas, consider wearing long pants and sleeves and bringing bug spray.
Parents must supervise children at all times.
Please sign up by Wednesday, October 10th so we have plenty of supplies and treats for everyone! Thanks for caring for our Common Home!!
If you are looking for ways to get involved at Ascension and/or care for the environment, we’d love you to join us! If interested or for questions about the Common Home Ministry, please contact:
