Services Schedule

PLEASE NOTE:  On Sunday, September 10, 2017, Ascension held a site blessing and groundbreaking service to sanctify the foundation upon which our new church will be built.  It was the last Liturgy celebrated in our temporary parish home. During the construction process, SUNDAY ORTHROS, DIVINE LITURGY AND SUNDAY CHURCH SCHOOL will take place at Daniel Wright Middle School, 1370 Riverwoods Rd., Lincolnshire. Tuesday evening Greek School classes will also take place at Daniel Wright School.  Ministry Meetings and Thursday evening Adult Greek School, effective this week, will take place at the home that Ascension rented just south of the church: 1221 North Riverwoods Rd., Lake Forest, unless otherwise noted.   Communication about the life of the Ascension parish is sent out regularly via email blasts.  If you aren’t receiving these notifications and would like to, please click  the “Join our Email List” icon on the righthand side of this webpage.
