Get To Know Us
Ascension is a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive community of people who gather to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, to give praise and thanks to God through the beauty of worship, and to love and serve God and our neighbors.
Regular Worship Schedule
Starting April 28, "socially distanced" Eucharist services will be held on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. Due to limited seating and contact tracing requirements, pews must be reserved in advance. For now, most other public services and programs of the Church of the Ascension are taking place online until further notice. Contact the parish office to learn how to attend our online services via Zoom.
We'd like to hear from you!

Almighty and everlasting God, who in the Paschal mystery established the new covenant of reconciliation: Grant that all who have been reborn into the fellowship of Christ’s Body may show forth in their lives what they profess by their faith; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
