    Celebrating 125 Years

     

    125th annivesary

    In 2014, Church of Ascension celebrated its 125th year anniversary. As a way of saying ‘thank you’ to God for his goodness to our church family, members and friends of Ascension undertook several projects, the highlight being a global mission venture to build several churches in the Gambella region of Ethiopia. Also in honor of the 125th anniversary, the vestry authorized the refurbishment of a piece of artwork at the back of our Nave, Guiseppe Mazzolini’s Transfiguration of Christ. Please take a look at it along with other beautiful pieces of artwork when you visit.

     

    The history of the first hundred years at Ascension was written by Marilyn Whitmore in a beautiful book entitled Church of the Ascension, 1889 – 1989. It is no longer available through bookstores. However, we have been given permission to post an electronic version. If you would like to read more about Ascension’s early history, it can be found in the following links: Cover and IntroductionPart 1Part 2)
