Ascension Church

Organize for Black Catholic Congress

The 12th National Black Catholic Congress will take place in Orlando, Fla., July 6 – 9, 2017. Many from our Archdiocese are planning to attend. Members of the organizing team are coming to Ascension for an information session about the Congress as well as a Day of Reflection with Archbishop Hebda. Our get-together is Wednesday, March 22, from 7-9 p.m. If you’d like to learn more about the National Black Catholic Congress and what’s happening locally in the black Catholic community, please join us!

Pray with us for our community
