Visit five selected galleries in one of New York City’s thriving art areas. Two Ascensionites who are residents of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, have graciously agreed to host anchor events: brunch at Timothy O’Rourke’s and afternoon cocktails at Steve Hubbard’s home. Gallery exhibits range from minimalist to installation art and include some works in oil, others in watercolor and sculpture. Saturday, June 4, 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (Rain date is Saturday, June 11, 2011). To join us, sign up on the sheet in the Parish Hall.
This Sunday, following the 11 am service, Ascension will hold its annual meeting. All are welcome to attend, whether or not you’re a pledging member of the parish. For this special Sunday, we will have three very significant pieces. Starting at 10:45 am, the Prelude will be perhaps the greatest masterpiece of César Franck, his Choral in E Major. The Offertory Anthem will be the highly dramatic and inspiring “In the Year that King Uzziah Died” by David McK. Williams. And the Postlude will be Bach’s formidable “We all Believe in One God.”
