"We challenge ourselves and the world to love like Jesus as we worship joyfully, serve compassionately and grow spiritually."
Our purpose statement encompasses exactly what The Episcopal Church strives to do each and every day. We invite you to visit The Episcopal Church of the Ascension and join our Episcopal family.
