Newsletter for June 20

On Sunday, June 20, the first Sunday in-person worship in more than 15 months will take place at the church at 9 a.m., albeit with some safety precautions, such as continuing to wear masks and maintaining social distance. (While we celebrate the recent news that 70% of adults in New York State have been vaccinated, we recognize that the actual rate varies widely between unique geographic, demographic, economic, and racial groups, and that some people with compromised immune systems are less likely to form an effective immune response even when vaccinated.) You can reserve a pew for a 9 a.m. Sunday service here. Online at 11 a.m. on Sunday, we'll continue to gather via Zoom to hear the Word of God, sing hymns, and pray. Please join us!

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.”
