 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


Meg Hunter-Kilmer, world renowned speaker, blogger, and "Hobo for Christ," came to Ascension on Tuesday, December 3rd and gave an awesome talk about preparation for a blessed and meaningful Advent. Visit her website atwww.piercedhands.com.


Then the righteous will answer Him and say "Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you? And the King will say to them in reply, "Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine you did for me." -Matthew 25:37-40
