On Friday, July 12, people all around the country will gather in vigil to shine a light on the abuses in the detention camps where migrants are currently being held, to call for their release, family reunification, and a just immigration policy. The New York Vigil is at Foley Square. If you would like to attend with Ascension parishioners and friends, please come to the evening 6 p.m. service or meet at the church at 6:30 and we will go down together after the Eucharist. You are invited to bring a battery operated candle or flashlight for the vigil.
In this week’s newsletter: Updates on our return to in-person 11 a.m. Eucharists (with continued access for online worshipers). Also: an introduction to Ascension’s new sexton, a preview of the next Racial Justice Discussion Group (September 23, via Zoom), and more news and updates about our parish life.
