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!

Daily Reflection: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavens, as he chose us in him…….for the praise of the glory of his grace that he granted us in the beloved.” [Ephesians 1:3,4a,6] Chosen and beloved by God, to live in union with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. We are so blessed to have the promise of salvation because we believe that Christ suffered and died for us. We can never outgive God’s blessings through our discipleship, but we can strive to live our sacramental promises to help Him build His kingdom. We become closer to Him through our prayers and devotions, but most especially through our faith in action. We show His love through our service; ministry in our Church and mission in our community. As a chosen and beloved child of God, how will you serve? Lord, show me how I can serve You and bring the light of Your love and your mercy to my parish and my community. Help me to remember that not my will, but Your will be done.

God our Father, Creator of the Universe and Lord over all creation, we humbly stand before you as your children in thanksgiving for your loving care and protection. We ask that you keep us safe from all hurricanes which may threaten us in the coming seasons. Protect us from all fear and anxiety of storms and give us an ardent trust and hope in your love and mercy. You alone have the power to command the sea, the wind and the rain. You alone bring peace, calm and safety. Father, we thank you in advance, for you are our only refuge. We ask this through Christ Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
