Join us Sundays on YouTube or take advantage of three in-person worship options!

You are warmly invited to join us for worship! Sunday services are currently livestreamed at 10am on Ascension’s YouTube Channel and will continue to be until pandemic concerns are behind us. There are several in-person worship options also. We have room so that all who wish to attend in person can do so at approximately twice a month (maybe more).  Here are three possibilities for in-person Sunday worship:

10am in the PARISH HALL: After months of being at home and watching livestream on sofas, a number of parents expressed a desire to rebuild good habits for in-person Sunday church worship. While those with children are always welcome to worship in the Nave with their children, appropriately distanced tables with seating will be available in the parish hall where the livestream will be shown for all to watch/participate together. Children will be provided with table top activities. The group gathered in the parish hall will proceed to the Nave to receive Holy Communion and then regather in the Parish Hall for the post communion prayer, blessing and dismissal. Registration for this worship option will be available on our website using THIS FORM.

10am in the NAVE: Parishioners can request to attend Ascension’s 10AM livestream service in person. Numbers of participants will be limited in accordance with COVID-19 protocols. If you would like to request to attend, please fill in THIS FORM.

11:30 – 12:30pm 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 (11:30 – 12:30pm). 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 (and hopefully we’ll be looking like this in 2021!)

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.
