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.

This is a very exciting time for our parish! Construction on Ascension's new house of worship commenced following a groundbreaking ceremony on September 10, 2017.  (Click HERE to read about this event.)  To read about the latest progress on our construction project, click HERE.  To view photos of construction progress, click HERE.  To see a video of the installation of Ascension's steel dome, click HERE!

Please participate in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take part in the building of a new Greek Orthodox church and community center that will be a spiritual home for us, our children, grandchildren and many more generations to come.   Donate today and help us achieve our dream debt-free!! All contributions are equally needed and appreciated, and will help our Parish meet our fundraising goal. We realize that this capital campaign initiative is a very personal commitment for each of our families. Please contact Fr. Sotiri regarding your questions, support and participation at frsotirios@ascensiongoc.com/847.482.1200.
