“Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, and Thy glory above all the earth.”
Great Consecration 40 Years Ago and the Relics of Holy Apostle Paul - 11/22/17

On Sunday November 19, 2017, at the end of Divine Liturgy the community of Holy Ascension Church performed a Thanksgiving Molebin, as is the parish custom on the Sunday before the civil holiday Thanksgiving.

The sermon called attention to the contemplation of those good things, which God bestows upon His servants, on the gift of life, and especially on the great blessing of being called to Holy Baptism and to have been vouchsafed worthy to have received the Sacred Mysteries of Christ.

New Sticharions for Our Acolytes - 11/14/17

Dear Parishioners,

As you may have noticed, the number of acolytes has increased and our vestry does not have enough sticharions in gold for our daily use. That is why the servers are wearing a variety of colors: gold, red, and even blue. It would be proper if every server’s vestment color matched the season and furnishings in our church.

The Merciful Lord has opened an opportunity for us to improve this situation. We have found 14 new gold sticharions for $2120.00; approximately $150/unit.
