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.
