Easter 2017 ~ A note from our Pastor
Each year we Christians celebrate the central mystery of our faith, the death and resurrection of Jesus. The Holy Week services at Ascension parish were prayerful, solemn and well attended. I am grateful to all of you for attending and worshipping with us. We acknowledge those who carried out various ministries throughout the week: the Eucharistic minister, Lectors, Ushers, Altar servers, Sacristans, the Choir under the direction of David Szanto, those who participated in the Holy Thursday washing of the Feet representing the service and charity of Christ. We are appreciative of the generous monetary contributions of our parishioners and in particular those who offered a donation in memory of a loved one to decorate the Sanctuary with Easter flowers. Special thanks to David Barrington for ordering and arranging the flowers on the altar.
May the Risen Lord bless all of you this Easter.
Be My Disciples ~ Another Year Comes to an End

Maria Luisa Vigano Mathilde Sinor Valerie Luzio
Gloria Odorizzi Jessica Guillot Amberly Leasure
Brenda Garcia Anna Romano Elisa Balleine
Barbara Cefis Fiona Ambuell Patricia Smith
We are grateful that you have shared the goodness of the Lord in you with the young people of our parish!
Celebration of First Communion and Confirmation
Although our Be My Disciples lessons for the year are ended, the coming weeks will be eventful, highlighted by the reception of sacraments. On Sunday, May 7th 25 children will make their First Communion. Following that, on Saturday, June 4th the sacrament of Confirmation will be conferred upon 17 young people. As a parish community let us pray for them as they take these important steps of sacramental initiation on their journey of faith.
A meeting of the parishioners will be held on Saturday May 6th in the Parish Room following the 4:30 Mass. The purpose of this meeting is to elect a Parish Warden to replace Tom Brady who is moving out of the Province. Tom Brady is serving his second mandate which began January 1, 2017.
All parishioners are invited to attend.
