Sunday Worship this Summer

SERVICE TIMES: Join us for a 9am Outdoor Tent Service or an 11am Service in the Nave that will also be available by livestream on Ascension’s YouTube channel.

New Covid Protocols are in place as of August 1, 2021:

9am Outdoor Tent Service:  While the wearing of masks is not required for people to attend our outdoor service, we are continuing to ask all those who are eligible to receive a vaccine but who, for whatever reason, are not yet fully vaccinated – please continue to wear a mask.

11am Indoor Nave Service: Masks (that properly cover the nose and mouth) must be worn at all times inside the building on Sunday mornings (except when briefly raised to receive Holy Communion).

Holy Communion:  Holy Communion will continue to be offered in “both kinds” – that is, we will be offering the bread and the wine. The bread-bearers will dip a wafer in the communion wine and place the wafer into a communicant’s cupped hands. If anyone would prefer only to receive the wafer, they should indicate that to the bread-bearer.

Singing:  We will continue to sing at both services.

Weekday Parking
Please use our parking lots located at Neville and Ellsworth. If you’ll be less than an hour, you can also park on the street.

Sunday Parking
There are several good options on Sundays:

  • Street Parking – no restrictions
  • Oakland Catholic School – We have permission to use this lot each Sunday. You must enter the Oakland Catholic parking lot from Craig Street, which is one block west of the church toward the University of Pittsburgh. The gate at the entrance to the lot will open automatically when your car approaches the line.
  • Clyde Street – Clyde intersects Ellsworth, almost directly across from our parking lot. Parking is available in the University Child Development Center. Clyde is one way and the access is from Fifth Avenue, one block south of the church toward Carnegie Mellon University
  • Central Catholic School – This lot is two blocks away from the church. The entrance is on Neville, just down the hill from Fifth Avenue.
