Tomorrow, Wednesday, November 11, is Remembrance Day.  We, once again, will commemorate the sacrifices of those Canadians who fought in World War I and II, and all those who have given their lives in armed conflict throughout the years in the name of freedom and peace.

  • In observance of Remembrance Day, the office will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, November 11.
  • Public Worship at the Ascension takes place every Sunday at 11 p.m. Pre-registration continues to be required plus all the other guidelines when attending the service. For next Sunday, you will be able to register on Thursday by calling if you already have the questionnaire completed, registering on line, or coming by the church office to complete a questionnaire. It's Thursday for registering this week due to the holiday, but other than that, the deadline to register for church service the following Sunday is Wednesday. (Live-streaming of the service continues each week through the parish's facebook page.)
