A Note From Our Pastor
We are blessed to have such a loving and giving parish family. Church of the Ascension is almost 50 years old and continues to Proclaim the Word of God, Celebrate the Eucharist, and Serve the Local Community. As we approach our 50th anniversary, let us continue "Growing Into Our Future" by strengthening the Ministry, Maintenance, and Mission of our parish. Please join me in supporting this campaign.
As I always say, "Kuyumba Halumo," which means We Walk Together.
~ Fr. Daniel J. Malingumu
Ascension conducted an in-person and online feasibility study to determine the needs of our parish and the support of this Capital Campaign. Click here to review the feasiblity results. After review of these results by the pastor, staff, pastoral council, finance council, building committee, and other parish leaders, it was determined to move forward with this campaign.
As Ascension approaches our 50th Anniversary, it is also the perfect time to look to and lay the foundation for the future.

How do I pledge? And what is the pledge redemption time frame?
Each parishioner/family will receive a packet containing campaign information and a pledge card. We ask that you fill out that card and return it to the parish office. The campaign pledge period is up to 5 years. Payments can be made monthly, quarterly, yearly, or one time -- whatever is best for you.
The Growing Into Our Future Committee is offering several Town Hall meetings, and will also hand out packets two weekends (one in May and one in June) after Masses. We look forward to answering any questions you may have at these different events.
