We look forward to welcoming you back to Ascension Church for Mass. May God Bless you all.
As some of you may have already heard, Bishop Nicholas Di Marzio has transferred me to St. Nicholas of Tolentine, in Jamaica, as of July 1, 2020. As Pastor of St. Nicholas I will be working with a new staff and celebrating Mass with new Parishioners. I look forward to this new challenge as I did when I was assigned to this Church eleven years ago.
Reverend Anacleto S. Asebias Jr., who is presently a Parochial Vicar at Holy Family Church in Flushing will be your new Administrator. I will coordinate with him for a later date, where I will return to Ascen-sion to celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving and to thank you for your kindness and generosity throughout the years. (Please know that the date will be announced ahead of time as soon as the public celebration of Mass resumes.)
I have been blessed over these past eleven years by experiencing the “love of God poured into our hearts” here at Ascension. I thank you for your support and hope that all will give the same to your new Ad-ministrator. I ask for your continued prayers, as you may be assured of mine. Let us pray that the Holy Spirit may continue to pour out upon our Parish and its Administrator His many gifts so that we may know the power of Christ’s love in our hearts and through us, to all people.
“May God, the source of hope, fill you with all joy and peace by means of your faith in him, so that your hope will continue to grow by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
