Newsletter and Order of Service for the Second Sunday of Christmas

On the Tenth Day of Christmas and looking ahead to Epiphany, we give thanks for the passing of another year — and, despite all, God's presence in it — and the learnings, the awakenings, and the simple blessings it brought us. And as the Magi looked to a star to find the Christ, we look forward to this new year, praying that God lead us in paths of mercy and justice in 2021, however unclear the way may yet seem.

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.”
