ANNOUNCEMENTS

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.


MUSIC MINISTRY

As summer comes to an end, we are looking to recruit new members for the parish adult choir. Rehearsals generally are held on Wednesday evenings in the Church at 7:30 p.m. and the choir sings on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Attendance at both times is required for membership. Anyone interested in becoming a part of this music ministry is asked to contact Mr. Peter Roland at the Rectory Office 718-335-2626. Thank you.
