Church of the Ascension


For at least the next few weeks, the section closest to the choir will remain socially distanced.  In terms of the wearing of masks, we are following the guidance from the Archdiocese, which indicates that those who are fully vaccinated no longer need to wear face coverings:


  • Since our guidance throughout this pandemic has been to follow the regulations of public health authorities, with regards to masks/face coverings, the archdiocese will follow the public health orders given by the State of Ohio (wording updated on May 19).

    – May 14 Statement by Gov. DeWine concerning New CDC Mask Guidance

    The latest information about COVID-19 protocols for churches in the archdiocese can be found here on our website.

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!


Due to a lack of response, Vacation Bible School will not take place June 21-25.  If you made a donation, we thank you! Food items will either be passed on to the parish picnic or food pantry.
