O

nce upon a time, the Church of the Ascension had its own letterpress in the basement to produce the weekly service bulletin, which would be mailed to parishioners in the week prior to the Sunday service. In this era of worshipping online rather than in person, we resume this practice in email and on our website.

If the newsletter does not display in your browser below, use this link to read the weekly email from the Ascension parish office, usually sent out each Friday morning. During our time of online worship, the newsletter includes the Sunday Order of Service bulletin, as well as instructions on how to attend services either through the Zoom app on your computer, tablet or phone, or by dialing in by telephone. Please write to info@ascensionnyc.org if you would like to be added to the email distribution list.

Parish News:
January 29

This Sunday, following the 11 am service, Ascension will hold its annual meeting. All are welcome to attend, whether or not you’re a pledging member of the parish. For this special Sunday, we will have three very significant pieces. Starting at 10:45 am, the Prelude will be perhaps the greatest masterpiece of César Franck, his Choral in E Major. The Offertory Anthem will be the highly dramatic and inspiring “In the Year that King Uzziah Died” by David McK. Williams. And the Postlude will be Bach’s formidable “We all Believe in One God.”
