Thank you for those who have shared their thoughts about our first weekend back, including Ronald Nagle who said,
"Father Eamon: Lorraine & I had an opportunity to attend 7:30 Mass in Church this morning and just wanted to say what a pleasure it was to be back. As much as we enjoyed the You Tube Sunday Masses these past couple of months, there was nothing like being present in the Lord's house. The new visuals with music and prayers were great - a tribute to all those who worked so hard to make it possible."
We continue to pray for our church family members who remain at home due to health reasons and serious concerns.

(A few of the tips from the video just written out!)
1.ALL are Highly Encouraged to wear a Face Mask During Mass. If you do not have one, an usher will be more than happy to retrieve one for your use.
2.Your Financial Generosity in support of Ascension Parish is always welcomed. There is a collection basket at the Main Entrance of the Church in the Narthex. There will not be a collection during the Preparation of Gifts until further directives from the Bishop.
3.The Social Concerns Office is always in need of food items. If you brought Food Items today, you will find the large Brown container outside the Main Entrance of the Church.
4.COMMUNION PROCESSION: communion Lines have currently changed for your safety. PLEASE follow the direction of the Ushers and keep a 6 foot distance between you and the person in front of you when processing. We ask that all in the pew process up, those not receiving Communion may receive a blessing.
5.At the Conclusion of Mass, all Doors will be propped open for your convenience in your speedy and safe departure. We ask all leave the church once Mass has ended so Maintenance may purify the Church for the next Mass.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to do our best in meeting everyone's need for a full and active participation in the Sunday Liturgy. Sunday Mass will continue to be available on line each Saturday
