Christmastide at Ascension

Our worship services for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, the First Sunday after Christmas and the Second Sunday after Christmas have all become online-only, due to the recent surge of COVID infections in New York City. But do please join us at as we welcome the Christ child into our hearts and celebrate the birth of Emmanuel, "God with Us."
