Welcome to our faith community, loving and serving God and neighbor in Boca Raton, Florida. In the conviction that the church cannot grow without the active participation of its members, all age groups at Ascension parish are invited to take part in our parish life. Our website provides information on the variety of ways our parishioners serve others, study our Catholic faith and build a stronger faith community. We look forward to seeing you at our weekend liturgies. Our greeters wearing their bright green Ascend @ Ascension shirts will be on hand to welcome you!
Love God, Love Others, Make Disciples

Daily Reflection (12-17-17): “Brothers and sisters: Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing.” [1 Thessalonians 5:16-17] This third Sunday of Advent is called Gaudete Sunday and the candle we light is rose colored. Gaudete means “rejoice” in Latin and the readings today focus on joy: our joy that our Savior is coming! The Gospel reading, from John, is the testimony of John the Baptist, that he is the voice crying out in the desert to be ready for the coming of the Messiah. We rejoice that God loves us so much that He is coming to be with us. Just as the second order of angels, the cherubim, bring praise and glory to God; our joy in worship brings glory to God. Our prayers of thanks and praise should outnumber our prayers of petition. Thanks be to God! My Lord and my God, thank You for the joy You bring to my life! Thank you for the angels who guide me on my faith journey; those who bring me closer to You through my family, my friends, and my Church.
