Catholic Services Appeal
The Catholic Services Appeal is your annual invitation to support the ministries and services of the Archdiocese of Louisville. The Appeal plays an integral role in funding over 100 different programs and services of the Archdiocese. Whether it is providing pastoral care to those in the hospital, supplying clothing and food to those in need, reaching out to youth and young adults, educating future priests and supporting retired priests, or providing services to parishes and schools, the Catholic Services Appeal supports ministry at every level of our Archdiocese.
Our 2016 Catholic Services Appeal goal is $3.5 million. Through your much needed and greatly appreciated gift to the Appeal, you have the opportunity to Bring Christ to Others!

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 (4:00 on Saturday; 8:30 and 10:30 on Sunday) or at weekday Mass (Tuesday 5:15 and Wednesday through Friday at 8:15).
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
