The Church of the Ascension
la Iglesia de la Ascensión
Do you have items you would like to donate to support this great event? All items are welcome! They can be brought to the garage at the church or you can call Doris Espinal at 401-486-4989. Would you like to donate your time to this event. Yard sales can be so much fun and many hands united under Christ will make it even more fun and a true parish event. Mercedes would love to have you tell her you will volunteer. Thanks!
The visit of the Bishop is always an joyful occasion to recall the broader church of which we are a part and to recommit ourselves to the faith of this Church. Many people have found that it is a powerful time to take the step of affirming their adult commitment by being Confirmed or Received officially into the Episcopal Church with the Laying on of Hands by the Bishop. This is particularly appropriate for those who have found a home in this place, whether new to our tradition or having grown up in it. In preparation we will have a series of classes on Sunday mornings beginning in a few weeks. This is an unusual opportunity, so if this is of interest to you please speak with Mike Coburn for more information.
There are many ways in which we can express thanks for what a rich and diverse parish this is ---- picnics, shared meals, Eucharists --- and now we have: The Parish Mural! On the hallway toward the Parish Offices you will now find a large poster board mural entitled "We are the Body of Christ/ Somos el Cuerpo de Cristo" (The old clergy photos are being relocated). To complete our mural you are invited to add your name, prayers, drawings, thanksgivings, or other joyful expressions with one of the multi-colored pens found there. Our mural will not be complete without your contribution! Thank you!
Ascension has a bi-lingual youth group that for young people ages 12 and older. The group meets for fellowship and topical discussions.
