Important notice about worship services during the Coronavirus Pandemic

In an effort to prevent community spread of the coronvirus, Sunday services will be livestreamed at 10am on Ascension’s YouTube Channel until further notice.

In person attendance is possible by registration. The link to register is available HERE. Please note that masks are required and due to the risk of aerosols, we will not be singing but will rather listen to music broadcast over the speakers and visible on screens.

A walk through Eucharist will also be available after the livestream from 11:30 – 12:30pm. Only the bread will be distributed. 

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. For our location and directions, please click on the map.

Church Address

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.
