Join us for our traditional name-day event when we will receive and confirm new members. This year our Ascension Day celebration takes on an additional dimension as Bishop Mark Sisk makes a farewell visit to The Church of the Ascension and consecrates the newly commissioned portrait of Father Andrew. Cake and champagne toasts will follow the service.
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.”
