Perpetual Adoration:

For over a quarter of a century, parishioners of Ascension and Catholics from surrounding parishes have participated in Eucharistic Adoration in the Chapel of Our Lady of Czestochowa.  Give back to God just one hour out of the 168 hours given to us each week.  The chapel is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call the Parish Office for the security code to unlock the chapel door, and visit anytime
