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!

Father Sam Owen is the Priest-in-Charge of the Haitian Congregation of the Good Samaritan in the Bronx, and we were delighted to welcome him back to Ascension on May 16, 2021. After the service, updated us on the situation in Haiti, as well as the New York Haiti Project, in which we participate, and on the church and school in Martel.
