Church of the Ascension

On Oct 1, it was announced that Ascension will become a parish family with St. Albert and St. Charles.  The period for public commentary on the groupings runs through Oct 20.  To see the map of the Parish Family groupings for the entire Archdiocese, and to share your comments with the Archdiocesan leadership, click the logo above. We welcome this opportunity to grow our family and position ourselves for ongoing mission!

Ascension Beacons of Light Prayer

Heavenly Father,

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
