Originally a junior high school science teacher, The Rev. Canon Deborah G. Tammearu is a graduate of the General Theological Seminary in New York City, and has been an Episcopal priest for more than 30 years. She began her ordained ministry at Zion Church, Wappingers Falls, where she served as the Curate, and next served as the Priest-in-Charge of Western Dutchess Ministry, a collaborative coalition of three congregations in Dutchess County, for ten years. She was called by St. Thomas, Mamaroneck to be their fifteenth Rector, leaving that position after nineteen years when Bishop Andrew Dietsche recently appointed her as the diocesan Canon for Transition Ministry.

Ascension is a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive community of people who gather to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, to give praise and thanks to God through the beauty of worship, and to love and serve God and our neighbors.
Regular Worship Schedule
Starting April 28, "socially distanced" Eucharist services will be held on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. Due to limited seating and contact tracing requirements, pews must be reserved in advance. For now, most other public services and programs of the Church of the Ascension are taking place online until further notice. Contact the parish office to learn how to attend our online services via Zoom.
