Christ Life: Discovering, Following and Sharing Christ

Church of the Ascension offers the ChristLife trilogy: Discovering Christ, Following Christ and Sharing Christ. Each series of teachings takes us deeper into our faith and how we as a community celebrate and live out our faith.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

The RCIA is the process by which adults interested in full initiation into the Catholic Church have the opportunity to inquire into its teachings and to reflect on their readiness for entry into the Catholic faith community. This program is for people who have not been baptized, people who have been baptized in other faith traditions and for baptized Catholics who never completed the other sacraments of initiation- Eucharist and/or Confirmation. Click here for more info. 

Small Faith Groups 

Father Daniel is encouraging parishioners to consider joining or forming Small Faith Groups to help us grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ. Small Faith Groups are one of the many ways that Church of the Ascension parishioners come together to learn, discuss and support each other in their Catholic Christian journey.
