For 20 years now, Ascension of Our Lord Greek Orthodox Church has been a beacon of light in Lincolnshire, IL to over 300 faithful stewards. Through worship services, fellowship, community outreach, and our Christian witness, this parish has played an important role in helping people find Truth and Life in their daily journey. The time has now come for our dream of building a new church to become a reality. Our Capital Campaign theme: “Our Faith…Our Church… Our Legacy” exemplifies the importance of this project as we create and build for the present and the future.

January 27, 2019 ANNOUNCEMENT:  PARISH COUNCIL LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN TO RAISE REMAINING $250,000 TO BUILD DEBT-FREE  On Sunday, January 27, 2019 following Liturgy and a presentation showing a photo progression of Ascension's Church building project from September 10, 2018 to date, Parish Council President Nick Marino announced that if Ascension's Parish Community can raise $150,000 between now and March 11th -- the beginning of Great Lent -- the Parish Council will "Cap the Capital Campaign" and donate the remaining $100,000 needed to build debt-free! Click HERE for more information!

Our Faith

The Church
The life of the Orthodox Church perpetuates and fulfills the ministry of Jesus Christ. The close association between Christ and His Church is reflected in the images from the Scriptures which declare that Christ is the Head and the Church is His Body, and that Christ is the Bridegroom and the Church is His bride.
