Ascension Parish Mass - Thursday 25 May 2017, 8.00pm

Today we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension.

The Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ - also known as Ascension Thursday, Holy Thursday, or Ascension Day - commemorates the Christian belief of the bodily Ascension of Jesus into heaven. It is one of the ecumenical feasts (i.e. universally celebrated) of Christian churches, ranking with the feasts of the Passion, of Easter, and Pentecost. Ascension Day is traditionally celebrated on a Thursday, the fortieth day of Easter (following the counts given in Mark 16:19, Luke 24:51, Acts 1:2 ).

Do please join our worship in this parish, which commences at 8.00pm.
