PARISH VOCATION COMMITTEE

Bishop DiMarzio has asked that all parishes establish a Vocations Committee.

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
