    Our Beginnings

    Moreton-in-Marsh, a thriving market town, lies in the northern Cotswolds of Gloucestershire, England. (Our Rector’s mother lives there.) Her village is filled with lively folks who can’t wait to meet once a month at their local parish to join together for a meal, some fun and some meaningful interaction. When she described to us the success of their group, we couldn’t resist creating our own unique group.

     

    owls1Who Are We and What Do We Do?

    We gather on a monthly basis to share a meal, get acquainted and to listen to a lively talk on a variety of inspiring topics

     

    When Do We Meet?

    We meet monthly on the 2ND Thursday of the month, 12:30 to 2:30pm, September through June

     

    Who Can Come?

    Any one can come. The group is designed with seniors in mind. Typically that is age 55+. However, if you are younger than that – that’s OK. And, there’s no need to be a member of the church. Friends are welcome!

     

    What is the Cost?

    First time for a friend is free! After that, $10 covers the cost of lunch.

     

    How Do I Preregister?

    Simply email the Rev. Ann Tefft or call the church at 412-621-4361. If you forget, come anyway! We’d love to have you. (Though pre-registering helps us to know how much food to provide.)

    From Trinity Magazine:

    “A few weeks ago, I spoke to the OWLS group at Church of the Ascension – a new group with so much energy, joy and wisdom in the group that I couldn’t help but think of the psalmist’s words: they still bear fruit in old age.” – The Rev. Canon Mary Hays, Canon to the Ordinary
