On the last Sunday in June we celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender pride with our water table on Fifth Avenue. After the service, around noon, we will set up our water table to give water to the marchers on Fifth Avenue and commemorate the 49th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. Please join us! For more information and to let us know you want to volunteer or bring sandwiches or cookies for the volunteers, contact Steve Hubbard or the parish office or just come help set up after the 11 am service. If you would like to march with fellow Episcopalians, they will convene at 3pm on 17th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. The group is in section number 7, section 39. The march route has been changed this year: departs from 7th Avenue and 16th Street, turns left on Christopher Street, heading east across 8th Street and up Fifth Avenue with dispersal at 29th Street.
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!
