Please let us know if you plan on attending. For more info or questions, call Jason Velazquez at 718-424-5212, ext. 28, or email jvelazquez@aol.com.


PARISH BAPTISM TEAM

Are you interested in assisting our Parish Baptism Team. We are looking for men and women who would like to assist in preparing parents and godparents during the preparation course. They assist the clergy in answering questions at the “Pre-Baptism Meetings.” Baptism preparation classes are held on the second Wednesday of the month in English and on the third Wednesday of the month in Spanish. To learn more about joining the team, contact Mrs. Gallo at ascensionfaithformation1@gmail.com or call the Parish Office at 718- 335-2626 Ext. 13.


PARISH REGISTRATION

All persons/families should be registered in the Parish. Registering for the parish not only makes you more a part of the family of Ascension Church it gives a chance for you and your family to be counted. Registration forms are available at the entrance of the Church and at the Rectory Office. Kindly fill out the form and leave at the Rectory Office or in the collection basket. Thank you.


MOVING

If you are moving it would be appreciated if you notify the Rectory Office as soon as possible. When we are informed about your moving it enables us to make the changes before the new set of envelopes are printed and mailed. This saves the Parish the cost of remailing the envelopes. Thank you.


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
