The theme for the Advent Quiet Day on Saturday, December 3, 2016 is Baking Bread and Waiting for God. We will meet from 10am until 3pm. Co-led by Fr. Ed and Valerie Coates (Ascension Chorister and bread baking expert), the group will explore our relationship with the Divine in this season of waiting, hope and expectation, while making bread as both a metaphor and a spiritual practice. Lunch will be served. Suggested donation, which covers the cost of materials and food, is $15. (Scholarships are available.) Contact Fr. Ed or Andrew Jones, Parish Administrator (212) 254-8620 to reserve a place for what is sure to be a delightful and delicious time together.
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!
