The Bishop is Coming! Please join us on June 4, 2017 for Pentecost Sunday as we welcome our Assisting Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Mary Glasspool. And join us as we congratulate and welcome those of us who will renew their commitment to Christ. “Strengthen, O Lord, your servants with your Holy Spirit, empower them for your service, and sustain them all the days of their lives. Amen.” A festive luncheon will follow the 11 o’clock service to honor Bishop Glasspool, those renewing their commitment to Christ, and to celebrate the many blessings of life at Ascension.
