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.
We will celebrate the Feast of St. Francis — the saint who preached to the birds and called a wolf his brother — with the blessing of the animals following the 11 am service this Sunday, October 1. The blessing will be around 12:30 pm, giving those who live nearby a chance to go and get their animals; however, you are also welcome to bring well-behaved pets to church that day. Tell your friends!
