Ascension News for May 29, 2019

Ascension Day is tomorrow, May 30; it's a floating holiday that falls forty days after Easter.  The Christian belief is that after Jesus died on the cross, he rose from the dead on Easter Sunday,  and walked the Earth among his followers for forty days, continually teaching about the Kingdom of Heaven.  Then, according to St. Luke, on the fortieth day "...lifting up his hands, he blessed them, ..... and while he blessed them he departed from them, and ascended into heaven...."  
We celebrate this special event tomorrow, as well as commemorate our church's namesake, with Holy Eucharist at 9:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.

*  Tomorrow also marks the eve of Rev'd Wareham's sixtieth anniversary of his ordination.  He will preside at the 7 p.m. Holy Eucharist.  In celebration of this milestone, there will be a time of fellowship following the service in the auditorium hosted by the ACW.  Come and celebrate the feast of our title, and the faithful service of Rev'd Alfred.
