Ascension has formed a Revitalization Committee to address the changes to our parish and ways to bring vitality and life to Ascension. We will hold meetings on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm in the Ascension Hall.  

Please help us to breathe new life into our church community by taking a few minutes to complete a survey (download here) and join us at Ascension.

 Stop & Shop and  Shop Rite food cards are available at the Church entrance. Ascension receives 5% from the sale of these cards. "Thank You" for your support.
