Welcome to Ascension’s Web site. Founded in 1965, the Church of the Ascension will be celebrating its 50th anniversary as one of Louisville’s premier parishes next year. Comprised of 700 registered households and 1,800 parishioners, the Church of the Ascension features vibrant liturgies; several active ministries; an energetic youth ministry program and a solid commitment to social outreach.
I encourage you to explore the numerous opportunities for ministry involvement as well as personal spiritual growth detailed throughout this Web site. Ascension has an opportunity for YOU, so, please consider participating in one of our weekend liturgies (5:30 on Saturday; 8:30 and 10:30 on Sunday) or at daily Mass (8:15 on Tuesday through Thursday; 7am on Friday).
Ascension’s school is first-rate and offers small class sizes as well as state-of-the art learning opportunities for children from preschool through the 8th grade. Our test scores are among the highest in the Archdiocese and many Ascension School graduates go on to attend prestigious schools in the Louisville area. If you are seeking a quality education at an affordable price, I encourage you to consider Ascension today.
As the Church’s new shepherd, having been appointed in June of 2014, I am humbled and privileged to serve this community. Be a part of an energetic and vibrant faith community: join Ascension today!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Reverend Steven Henriksen
