Always and Everywhere: Exploring the Eucharist. Join us on Saturday, March 21 for a Quiet Day of entering more deeply into our sacrament of Holy Communion. We often forget that the Greek word “Eucharist” actually means “thanksgiving!” Through meditations on scripture and ancient church texts, conversations, and silence, we will be invited to delve into the spiritual and theological roots and dimensions of this central experience of Christian worship. We will gather at 10 am and conclude with an informal Eucharist, finishing by 3 pm (lunch will be provided). The leader will be the Rev. Susan E Hill, Spiritual Director and Associate Rector of the Church of the Holy Apostles. Susan has taught at Union Theological Seminary and leads workshops and retreats on spirituality and spiritual practices. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the parish office at (212) 254-8620 during office hours.

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.
