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.
Please share in giving toward our Advent greens, Christmas flowers and seasonal decor in the Our Lady of Victory Garden. Use the DONATE button above to make a memorial or thank offering, or to pay the balance on your 2018 financial pledge.
