Ascension Day Eucharist
Thursday, May 26, 2022, 12:05 PM
Please join us for a 12:05 Eucharist service on Ascension Day, May 26, in Golding Chapel.
The Feast of the Ascension of Jesus Christ, also called Ascension Day, Ascension Thursday, or some times, Holy Thursday, commemorates the bodily Ascension of Jesus into heaven. The occasion on which the risen Christ is taken into heaven after appearing to his followers for forty days (Acts 1:1-11, Mark 16:19).
The Ascension marks the conclusion of Jesus' post-resurrection appearances. It is the final elevation of his human nature to divine glory and the near presence of God. It is affirmed by the Nicene and Apostles' Creeds.
The Ascension is celebrated on Ascension Day, the Thursday that
is the fortieth day of the Easter season. It
is a principal feast of the church year in the Episcopal Church.
