Welcome to Ascension!
The Church of the Ascension is a diverse and welcoming Episcopal Church located in Chicago’s vibrant Gold Coast neighborhood.
Part of the world-wide Anglican Communion, we are grounded in rich Anglo-Catholic traditions in which we encounter God’s abundant grace and love for us and for the world.
Wherever you are in your life with God – hesitant searcher or long-time churchgoer – we pray that you may find a spiritual home with us at the Church of the Ascension. Please join us soon.
A Prayer for Memorial Day Weekend
"God of power and mercy, you destroy war and put down earthly pride. Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears, that we may all deserve to be called your sons and daughters. Keep in your mercy those men and women who have died in the cause of freedom and bring them safely into your kingdom of justice and peace. We ask this though Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
