Ascension Day Service in St. Andrew’s
The Solemnity of the Ascension of Jesus Christ, also called Ascension Day, commemorates the Christian belief of the bodily Ascension of Jesus into Heaven. Following the account of Acts 1:3 that the risen Jesus appeared for 40 days prior to his Ascension, Ascension Day is traditionally celebrated on a Thursday, the fortieth day of Easter.
Ascension Day will be celebrated in St. Andrew’s on Thursday 18th May 2023 at 12 noon
The Revd Anne Futcher will preside at the Holy Communion service where the preacher will be the Venerable Christopher Futcher, Archdeacon of Cyprus.
