Church of the Ascension

Archbishop Schnurr has written a letter to the Archdiocese regarding Beacons of Light.  To read it, click here. To sign up for the Beacons Newsletter, click the logo to the right



Given the recent rise in Covid cases, we are following the CDC guidelines and once again encouraging masks for all, but we are not yet mandating them.

Over the summer, we returned to a normal seating pattern in the sanctuary.  We will continue that unless and until we receive different guidance from the Archdiocese.

New Child Protection Program

The Archdiocese has switched from VIRTUS to SafeParish as the provider for ChildProtection training and record keeping.  For more information on SafeParish, including how to transfer your Active VIRTUS account to SafeParish or to register for new training, click the logo below.


Join us every Tuesday evening at 7pm for the twelve weeks of summer to walk and pray the Rosary! (Or bring a chair to sit in the shade to pray with us.) Children will receive a “passport” which will get stamped each Tuesday that they join us. Every three stamps will earn them a gift of their choice from our Mary grab bag! Adults will receive a ticket each Tuesday which will go in a drawing to be held at the Parish Picnic in August!
