In person attendance to resume on Sundays at 10am and Wednesdays at Noon with limited capacity

Pandemic or not, we hope you can worship with us in some way, either in person or via livestream!

In person attendance at worship services will resume effective December 6th with limited capacity. Ascension’s rector, Jonathan Millard, has explained our revised protocols for attendance in a video which is available below. The printed version is available HERE.  PLEASE NOTE: Registration for Sunday services is mandatory. The registration link is available HERE. Registration for the Wednesday Noon Eucharist during Advent is not currently required.

11:15 – 12:15pm WALK THROUGH EUCHARIST:  During the time we have limited capacity for worship, we offer a walk through eucharist. All who watch the livestream service are welcome to come to the walk through eucharist that will follow approximately 15 minutes after the service ends (11:15 – 12:15pm). Entrance to Ascension’s Nave will be via the red Nave doors facing the Parish Hall lawn. No registration needed for this.

Can’t come in person but would like the Eucharist?

For those unable to get to church, Lay Eucharistic Visitors are available for porch visits. Please use the link available HERE if you would like an at home visit. 

Here’s what things look like in non-pandemic time!

Our Sunday Services normally begin at 9am and 11am. Please join us!

You can learn more about Sunday worship here. To find us, we are located on the border of the Oakland/Shadyside neighborhoods of the City of Pittsburgh and just a short walk from both Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh.

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.
