PARISH VOCATION COMMITTEE
Bishop DiMarzio has asked that all parishes establish a Vocations Committee. The purpose of a Vocations Committee is to meet periodically to discuss prayer campaigns, distribute materials and other ways that we can support the members of our Parish who have been called by our Lord to the religious life, to marry or to serve in another way. If you would like to participate in such a committee here at Ascension Parish, please contact the Rectory Office at 718-335- 2626, during daytime office hours and leave your name, telephone number/and e-mail address
