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: “And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth.” [John 1:14] We are His Church and as disciples of Jesus, it is up to us to grow His Church. In the message this weekend, we were challenged to make “church” a verb; to be a movement for welcome and growth. As disciples, we are blessed with the grace and truth of Jesus’ message, His Word! We should not feel a fear of rejection when we share His Word. Rather, empowered by the truth and grace of Jesus Christ, we can welcome the lost back to Him. A place of welcome and Christ’s message; this is our vision for Ascension. It is up to each of us to extend the invitation. Jesus, You are the Way, the Truth and the Life. Allow me to share Your grace and mercy through my ministry and help me lead others to Your truth.

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.
