Welcome to the Church of the Ascension Youtube channel!
We are happy to share our first online Sunday morning service! It’s now posted on Youtube at https://youtu.be/FVplPtroJB8 and on the parish Facebook page. If you view on Facebook, please feel free to leave your thoughts and comments online.

Reminder, this is a good time to listen to sermons on past Sundays. Sermons since February 2015 can be heard online on the webpage since the first sermons were posted! They are available by date here https://ascensionnyc.org/sermons/.

Weeknights – Evening Prayer and Discussion

Please join us via Zoom, for our weeknight Evening Prayer and Discussion at 5:30 p.m., starting this coming Monday, March 16. We will explore how often and the best way to do this.

Some online etiquette hints:
1) Keep your phone muted unless you are speaking. The microphone is sound sensitive and if you talk or there is background noise you will “grab the mike” and it might cut off the speaker.
2) Make sure you give others an opportunity to speak.
3) Try not to speak over others.

We are all learning as we go so be patient with each other (and yourself!)

The Gift

Be still, my soul, and steadfast.
Earth and heaven both are still watching
though time is draining from the clock
and your walk, that was confident and quick,
has become slow.
 
So, be slow if you must, but let
the heart still play its true part.
Love still as once you loved, deeply
and without patience. Let God and the world
know you are grateful.
That the gift has been given.
