Ascension Day is one of the great feast on the Church Calendar. The Son of God came to earth in humility, taking on flesh, died for our sins on the cross and rose again! That is a a beautiful story, but it is not the whole story. After 40 days on earth in His glorified body, He ascended back to heaven, to the Father’s right hand where He now reigns in glory power, and intercedes for us.
Join us for a service of Evening Prayer with Communion.
The Collect and Lessons:
GRANT, we beseech thee, Almighty God, that like as we do believe thy only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ to have ascended into the heavens; so we may also in heart and mind thither ascend, and with him continually dwell, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.
