As is the case in all communities of faith, the Church of the Ascension relies on members' gifts of time, talent and treasure to sustain our ministries and mission. Contributors to Ascension also include our many guests and souls from afar who have been blessed by and who wish to support our unique heritage and vision.
Annually in the fall, members are asked to make a pledge toward the operations and ministries of the church for the coming year. You can read the 2021 message from our wardens here. Summaries of our financial condition are shared at our annual meeting, in January, and our Treasurer is otherwise available to answer questions. In compliance with the canons of the Diocese of Chicago, Ascension is annually audited and a management letter, available for parishioner review, is provided to the Vestry.
Ascension has greatly benefited over the years from generous bequests included in the estate plans of our members and clergy. Those who may be interested in making an estate gift (or any financial gift) for restricted purposes should first speak with the Rector or Wardens.
Thank you for generously sharing in the ministry and mission of the Church of the Ascension.
"Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness."
