ANNOUNCING ASCENSION'S NEWEST MINISTRY - ST. ANNA'S ORTHODOX MOTHERS' MINISTRY - Our new ministry is dedicated to St. Anna and formed for Ascension moms to support one another in raising our children in our holy Orthodox faith.  Meetings will include spiritual readings and discussion as well as special events to learn and carry on the Church's rich traditions.    Please note this is not a ministry where children will be present so that mothers can dedicate time for themselves to grow spiritually.

The ministry meets on Tuesdays at Ascension of Our Lord, 1207 Riverwoods Rd., Lincolnshire, IL.  See the schedule below and please send an email to with questions.
