A Message from the Rector, Thursday, April 9, 2020.
This year we celebrate Maundy Thursday at 7pm with readings and reflection, and a simple meal shared online. This is a new experience at Ascension, though it is an old tradition for Maundy Thursday. Please prepare some simple food in your own home, and set it out next to your computer. It is traditional to have bread and wine, as well as some other Lenten fare, and to bless the food as part of the service. This is not a Eucharist, but it does invite our reflection on the sharing of food in community, and the presence of Christ at all our tables. If you have questions, please contact the clergy.

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!
