OUTREACH ACTIVITIES
ASYLUM SEEKERS OUTREACH

On Saturday, August 17, 2024, the Church of the Ascension will bless backpacks benefitting high school students, funded by grants from the Lois & Richard Nicotra Foundation, the Episcopal Diocese of New York and our generous congregation. Please join us at 12:30 pm on August 17th! We will also be dedicating our Little Free Library which was donated by the Bonner Family. 

Ascension also continues to serve Lakeside Manor at 2:30 PM on Sundays with a Eucharist service followed by refreshments served by volunteers.   Would you like to be a part of this ministry? All volunteers are welcome.
