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.
