On Wednesday, July 16, the Search Committee presented a slate of three finalists for our next rector to the Vestry. From an original pool of more than 90 applicants, the committee determined that the gifts and talents of these three candidates most closely match the rector qualities we seek, and come closest to our parish and community fit as we have come to understand it. It is now the task of the Vestry to interview each of them and to discern which one is the best fit for Ascension. We ask for your prayers for the Vestry, the candidates, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit through this final stage of our parish search process.
Get To Know Us
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.
We'd like to hear from you!
