WORSHIP AND ADORATION
FOR YOUTH & YOUNG ADULTS
Youth and Young Adults at Ascension Parish are invited to an evening of rediscovering Jesus on Friday, July 6th at 7:00 pm. This will be a wonderful opportunity to encounter the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament and to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, with free food and fellowship to follow. Please extend this invitation to family and friends, especially those who haven't been to Church in a while. For more information, visit Ascension's Facebook page at facebook.com/ascensionparishcalgary.
We will be saying a very fond farewell to Fr. Pil and Father Terry the weekend of July 29/30th. They have served our community with commitment and dedication and will be greatly missed.
We have two new appointments to Ascension effective August 1, 2017 and we have the pleasure of welcoming Father Rodel Abanto, who has been appointed Associate Pastor and Father Anthony Pudota, who has been appointed to Ascension for weekend sacramental ministry.
Please help make our new Priests feel welcome in our community.
The weekend of June 3/4, 2017, the Capital Campaign team started promoting a new joint initiative with the Knights of Columbus Council of our Parish.
The Capital Campaign team encourages Ascension parishioners to participate in the Knights of Columbus Store Card Program. By adjusting our spending habits (groceries, gasoline, restaurants and entertainment) and using store cards, we can all make a valuable contribution to our Parish.
A percentage of the revenue from the Store Card Program sales will be committed toward the Capital Campaign for the renovation of our church building.
Our long awaited dream is coming true!
We have been waiting for this for so long, and we are very happy to announce that we have our Building Permit in our hands as of Friday, March 17th.
The next step is:
On October 29 and 30, 2016, the Ascension Renovation Committee (ARC) announced 3 exciting updates regarding the upcoming renovation:
1) The Development Permit with the City of Calgary has been approved. Although there are a few conditions tied to that Development Permit, ARC will continue to work with Ascension’s team of architects and engineers to address these conditions.
2) The team of architects and engineers have already started working on the detailed drawings required for the Building Permit application with the City of Calgary. It is anticipated that the application will be submitted before the end of the year.
3) The Diocese has approved the terms of Ascension’s loan with respect to the renovation.
ARC would like to thank the parishioners of Ascension for your help in making this renovation a reality! We appreciate your ongoing efforts to support this renovation through your prayers, your weekly giving, Capital Campaign pledges, and supporting our community event fundraisers.
We will provide more details and next steps once we our Building Permit has been approved.
