June 5, 2019

It was a glorious and historic day as the Ascension Parish Family celebrated its Thyranoixia, “Opening of the Doors” of its new home followed by the beautiful Feast Day Vespers service on June 5, 2019. His Eminence Metropolitan Nathanel blessed our new sanctuary and presided over each of the services. More than 30 clergy and 550 faithful gathered to witness this milestone event and walked with us through the doors of our new home!

The Sunday following the Thyranoixia, June 9, 2019, Ascension gathered in fellowship at Chevy Chase Country Club in Wheeling, IL, to celebrate the historic and momentous events that transpired days prior at our beloved new church.
