All are invited to Ascension Day Eucharist at beautiful Bishop's Chapel at Roslyn
Thursday, May 10, 2018, 6:30–7:30 PM  
The worship of God goes beyond individual churches: it’s a shared mission. Come celebrate this shared mission with us as we gather with the other eight West End Episcopal Churches on Ascension Day. Tradition holds that on Ascension Day, the resurrection Jesus was raised up to heaven, as a step before God released the Holy Spirit to empower us all in Jesus’ ongoing ministry. Rev. John Maher, rector at neighboring St. Francis Goochland, will preach. Enjoy Holy Communion, followed by a festive reception, with us. Casual attire.
