On Easter Sunday, we began our latest message series entitled Groundbreaking. The most groundbreaking event in history was Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. His life, death and resurrection changed everything. The resurrection proves that Jesus is who says he is and that he is the ultimate authority on life. It opened up access to a relationship with God and forgiveness of our sins and past failures. Then the Church was launched to bring this groundbreaking message to the world. In this series we will look at how Jesus’ resurrection and the early church broke new ground in the history of the world and how God desires the Church to do the same today so that just like the Acts of the Apostles, more and more people will be added to those who are being saved.
We will hear the message during the homily at Mass and continue to explore the message in our Small Groups. If you have been thinking about joining or starting a small group, this is the perfect time to do so. CLICK HERE to get more information about small groups here at Ascension. You can also sign up after Mass at the Information Booth in the Family Center.

Need help with processing the loss of a loved one? We are here to help. The Ascension Bereavement Group meets weekly on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 in the parish office chapel. The group discusses many aspects of grief and provides tools and support to help an individual deal with the process of grief through the Harvesting Of Tears program. The program is facilitated by your parish nurse, Barbara Bzura RN MSN. We are beginning a new group on February 12th. Please consider giving the group a try; many parishioners have been through the program and were happy that they did. There is no pressure to speak or share, and it is completely confidential. Please register with the office or call Barb Bzura at 561-699-3553. Don’t go it alone. We are here for you.
