Welcome to Church of the Ascension

Our website has a new look and I hope you will be able to navigate through it with some ease. Perhaps you are a parishioner at Ascension parish or are a non-parishioner. We hope that you will be able to find the information that you are searching for.

I would like to thank our communications committee for being very involved in developing this new website. Our parish is in a rural setting here in Johnstown, Ohio, and we are noted for our hospitality. As the pastor, I would like to offer to be of assistance to you in any way that I can. The parish has a wonderful staff and leadership team as well as many parishioners involved with a number of ministries.

Again, welcome to our website. May you continue to know the Lord’s blessings in your life.

Fr. Mark Ghiloni
Pastor
