Boldly Announce Your Ministries

Ascension has many volunteer ministries.  We would love to have you use your skills in one of the Ministries below.

Adult (Faith) Formation

We seek to provide learning opportunities through bible studies, our Ascension Book Club ("A.B.C."), our annual parish mission, our RCIA program (see 'Become a Catholic' in the Ministry tab), our weekly Wednesday Soup Suppers during Lent, and various other occasions throughout the year.  The Adult Faith Formation Committee meets on the 4th Sunday at 12:15 PM each month at the parish.  Volunteers are most welcome!

Become a Catholic - RCIA

Are you someone or do you know someone who...

* Has expressed an interest in becoming Catholic?
* Was baptized Catholic as a child, but has not celebrated the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist?

We offer an opportunity to come together weekly in a small group from autumn to spring to learn more about our faith. Sessions focus on teachings and experience of the Catholic Church and prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmations, and Eucharist during the Easter season.
