Together on Tuesdays @ 10
On Tuesday mornings throughout the year the Ascension staff team gathers weekly for Morning Prayer. We invite you to pray with us in the Gordon Chapel for Morning Prayer every Tuesday at 10am. Each week a different staff member will lead this thirty-minute time of prayer, using the 2019 Book of Common Prayer. Copies of the 2019 BCPs will be available for use during this service.

We have a dedicated post under our News & Events section of the website for photos of construction progress. We are very happy to report that all is progressing very well. There have been no ‘big surprises’, for which we are thankful! Every second Thursday an “Owner Architect Contractor (OAC)” meeting is held in the Hunt Rooms. We are brought up to date on recent activity and all relevant matters are discussed in full. While inside access to the parish hall is limited, demo work has advanced on both the first and second floors and the outlines of new spaces are taking shape. Outside, new concrete block has been laid for the ‘front’ of the parish hall and new narthex. You can also see the outlines of a new basement ‘water’ room. A full update on progress will be given at our Annual Meeting after the 11am service on Sunday, February 26. Please plan on attending. Click the link above to see more!
