Services Schedule

With God's help, Liturgical Services will continue at Ascension; however, by directive of our Metropolitan, and in compliance with our civil authorities, only the serving clergy and chanter can be present in the church for these services.  At this time, none of the faithful are permitted to assemble and as of March 14, 2020, all non-Liturgical meetings and events have also been cancelled or postponed until further notice.  Please stream our services live on our website HERE.  The stream will also be carried live on our Facebook page and our YouTube channel!  If you miss the livestream, all services will be archived on our livestream webpage.  Click HERE to go to Ascension's COVID-19 Resource Page.
