Welcome Father Chibueze!
As part of the Beacons of Light initiative, Archbishop Schnurr has named our Pastor, Father Ed Pratt the new pastor of the Kettering family of Parishes. Fr. Tom Nevels, current pastor of Mary, Help of Christians, will be one of our Parochial Vicars. On May 21, newly ordained Fr. Chibueze Asiegbulem was named our second Parochoal Vicar.

Ascension Beacons of Light Prayer
From the moment you gave birth to your Church,
through the power of the Holy Spirit,
you have called on your people to be
beacons of light to a darkened world.
That same Spirit has been at work at Ascension since our founding.
We have especially embraced a spirit of welcome —
a willingness to accept every person you have brought to our doors.
Now, as our archdiocese embarks upon the process of
pastoral planning for the decades to come,
bless our parish with that same spirit of welcome.
May we open the doors of our hearts
and embrace new ways of being Church,
so we can continue to be
beacons of light for all your people.
We make this prayer through the intercession of Mary, our Mother,
and in the name of your Son, Jesus,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
God forever and ever. Amen
