On the weekend of January 15th, we reflected on how we as a parish seek to be stewards of the gifts given to us. Click here for Ascension's Annual Fiscal report and Father Eamon's Column and reflections on the spirituality of stewardship.
Welcome to our webpage. We hope you will find the parish information here helpful. We offer a wide variety of ministries for all age groups which are aimed at helping us to live Jesus’ Great Commandment of Love. Our mission is to form disciples who will bring Jesus and his message to the people of Melbourne and beyond.
If you are new to the area or have been here for a while and are now seeking a church family, I would love to have the opportunity to meet with you or communicate with you via email. You can also contact Monica Sutton, Newcomers Ministry and Volunteer Coordinator, at email@example.com.
