Church of the Ascension


The annual Catholic Ministries Appeal for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati kicks off in late January.  The monies collected by this appeal fund the Seminary, college campus ministry, St Vincent dePaul and more.  You should receive a mailing from the Archdiocese in the next few weeks.  Please be generous.

January 22 marks the anniversary of Roe v Wade.  As Catholics we respect the dignity of life from conception to natural death.  The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is sponsoring a Novena for Life from January 21-29.  Information and resources can be found by clicking the logo above.

Ascension's New App

Download our new MyParish App, available for Apple and Android phones.  Easy access to not only parish information, calendar of events, the bulletin, livestreaming of Mass, but also daily readings, all kinds of prayers and instructions for going to Confession, tithing, Catholic news, reflections, the rosary and much more.  Click the picture to download now!

Green means Go!  We've marked off the pews to create social distancing at public Masses.  Please sit in pews with the green tape to your back, and make sure to sit 6ft from anyone who does not live in your household.  Thanks!  


To help you decide whether or not you're ready to return to public Masses, we're publishing the attendance at each weekend Mass.  Church capacity is normally 800, but with social distancing, we are closer to 200, including the simulcast in the Witzman Center. 

Attendance for the Weekend of January 9/10:  5:00PM - 172,  8:30AM - 114,  11:00AM - 158
