In the Church’s Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, through the ministry of the priest, it is Jesus, through the Holy Spirit, who touches the sick to heal them from sin and sometimes even from physical ailment. The Rite of Anointing tells us there is no need to wait until a person is at the point of death to receive the Sacrament. Therefore, to better assist you, we ask that you call the parish office at 561-997-5486 prior to going into the hospital for a priest to anoint you.

The REBUILT book is available to purchase for just $3.00. If you are actively involved in a ministry or mission it is FREE! Stop by the Information Booth or call the parish office at 561-997-5486 to get your copy today.These are the basic ideas in the Rebuilt model:
- It is orthodox in the Catholic faith,
- Dynamic and creative in the commitment to the New Evangelization,
- Changing the consumer culture,
- Reaching the lost – the unchurched, the de-churched, those away or hurt by the church,
- Making disciples, and
- Message and mission that matter.
With our parish mission statement: Love God, Love Others, Make Disciples we have been developing programs and processes based on the Rebuilt model. Many of our parish ministry leaders have attended REBUILT conferences or visited Nativity in Maryland. Through our week-end ministries and our missions partners, we are striving to be a parish of vision. We want each and every parishioner to be a part of this vision; to understand and be involved in making Ascension a parish of outreach and hospitality.
