What’s happening in November?

The November edition of The Ascent, our monthly newsletter, is available now.

Dr. Ann Paton as she retires from her role as Liturgical Assistant. This edition is full of program highlights for kids, youth, young adults, internationals and seniors. The first piece to be written by Tish Warren in her new role as Writer in Residence is included as are additional articles on the history of Ascension, missions, as well as a letter written by the rector on decisions our governing body, vestry, recently made.
