Funeral for Jane Pool

A beloved member of Ascension, Jane Pool, passed away this past week at age 95. For those who are able to join us via livestream, the funeral service for Jane will be available to watch on Ascension’s Youtube channel at 11am on Friday, August 14. You can access the link HERE. If you would like to attend in person, please email Marilyn at marilyn.chislaghi@ascensionpittsburgh.org to register. Per our service protocols, masks must be worn throughout the service and there will be no live singing.

August Ascent

The August parish newsletter, The Ascent, is hot off the press. This month’s edition is entitled “Who’s Who: Re-introducing the staff and clergy of Church of the Ascension, recognizing volunteers and welcoming a few new faces.” It is available HERE. Enjoy!

Attend 10am Livestream or Walk Through Eucharist to follow

Congregants can request to attend Ascension’s 10:00 a.m. livestream service in person. Numbers of participants will be limited in accordance with state guidelines so please reserve a place in advance. If you would like to request to attend, please fill in THIS FORM.

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. Entrance to Ascension’s Nave will be via the red Nave doors facing the Parish Hall lawn. 

Request a Lay Eucharistic Visit

If you are not able to come to Ascension to receive the sacrament after worshiping via the livestream service, and would like to receive Holy Communion at your home (as a “Porch Visit”, not actually entering your home), we will arrange for a Lay Eucharistic Visitor to come to you on Sunday afternoon. Please fill out THIS FORM to request a visit. Once we have your contact information, we will be in touch to explain the special protocols. You can expect a call from your Visitor on Saturday or Sunday to confirm a time on Sunday he or she will be bringing the Sacrament to you. If you have questions, please email Andrea Millard at andrea.millard@ascensionpittsburgh.org
