Join us on June 2nd at Squaw Valley Park!
Sunday, June 2 will be Fr. Josh’s last day on staff. Weather permitting, we will be saying our goodbyes to Josh at 1pm during our picnic at Squaw Valley Park following our services of Eucharist out at the park (and at Ascension) that morning. Services will be at 10:30am in both locations. (There will also be our usual 7:30am service that day at Ascension).
In the event of bad weather we will have our service at Ascension only at 10:30am with Josh’s send-off following (with a ‘picnic’ in the Parish Hall!). In keeping with previous years we will only cancel the picnic if rain looks set or severe storms are expected. Notice of cancellation will be sent via email by early Sunday morning, published on major news networks where school cancellations typically scroll, and posted on our website.
Please bring a side dish and/or dessert to share. Call Judy at the church office (ext. 210) to help with food (setup, grilling, cleanup) or rides (if you can give one, or if you need one).
To get to Squaw Valley Park, take Rte. 28 North (from Ascension) to Fox Chapel Rd. Exit. At the end of the exit ramp, turn left onto Fox Chapel Rd. Go 0.6 miles to the park on your right. We are in the large pavilion, behind the pond.

Would you like to know more about the church our Associate Rector, Josh Miller, is going to plant in Colorado? There is now a website with information about getting the church up and running (as opposed to the church website itself). On the site is information, FAQs, ways to help, and a blog where updates will be posted. Go to helpstartstthomas.org (don’t place www. in front of the address, that issue is getting ironed out). Thank you for your interest!
Our 7:30am service uses the more traditional liturgy of Rite 1. It is a small and intimate service that meets in a chapel. All are welcome, although there is no provision for childcare. Following the service bagels and pastries, juice and coffee are served in the Parish Hall.
Our 9am service uses the more contemporary liturgy of Rite 2. The musical part of our worship is led by a worship band. Childcare and Sunday School are provided. Our special needs program runs concurrent with this service.
Our 11am service also uses the more contemporary liturgy of Rite 2. The musical part of our worship incorporates an adult choir, a praise group called Resounding Grace and hymnody accompanied by the organ. Childcare and Sunday School are provided.
In between the two main services, from approximately 10 – 11am, we host a Hospitality Hour in the Parish Hall. You are welcome to join us for good food and fantastic fellowship!
