Sacraments

The Church of Ascension celebrates the sacraments of the Catholic Church in a warm, nurturing environment. These sacraments are celebrated to deepen our union with Christ. Our sacramental signs are: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist (Communion), Penance (confession/reconciliation), Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony (marriage).

Sacraments are outward signs instituted by Christ to give grace. There are all kinds of signs around us but sacraments are unique because they are signs of the presence and love of God for us and of our desire to encounter God.

Specifics for each of the sacraments are below. Please feel free to contact the Parish Office with any questions at 937-253-5171.
