Parish School of Religion

From September into May, Church of the Ascension offers a Parish School of Religion for children in grades 1 to 8. The School teaches our children the knowledge that they need to pray, love, and serve our God. It also prepares them for the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation. The Church strongly encourages all children who do not attend a parochial school to register for the Parish School of Religion.
