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 (1-16-18): “May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ enlighten the eyes of our hearts, that we may know what is the hope that belongs to our call.” [Ephesians 1:17-18] The Gospel acclamation today offers poetic words about where our faith, our hope and our joy are found. There is a contemporary Christian song that says, “Open the eyes of our hearts Lord, I want to see you.” When our head tells us not to believe, our heart tells us to have faith. Consider the doubts and fears that the first disciples must have had, following a man who claimed to be the Son of God. Jesus proved who He was by dying on a cross, He was resurrected and some still doubted and were afraid. We must open our hearts to faith, hope and joy; letting go of doubt and fear. Jesus, I truly believe that You are with me always. Help me let go of all fears that keep me from finding true joy that I can only find in You.
