Announcements

The Daily Office

We pray that the Lord would “Give us this day our daily bread.” Throughout the week at Ascension, He answers that prayer. While Sunday morning Divine Service is the main entrée of your week, He ever provides the manna of His Word to tide you over. And what better way to receive this food for your soul than to gather with your church family. Private Confession is available 30 minutes prior to each Daily Office.

Days & Times:
Evening Prayer: Wednesdays at 6:00 P.M.
Vespers: Thursdays at 3:00 P.M.
Matins: Fridays at 9:00 A.M.

Location: Church sanctuary
