Christ Church to celebrate the Feast of the Ascension
On Sunday, June 1, Christ Church Parish (Episcopal) in Christchurch will celebrate the Feast of the Ascension.
According to Holy Scripture, after His resurrection, Jesus ascended into heaven having foretold the Pentecost coming of the Holy Spirit. The Feast of the Ascension not only marks the end of Jesus’ “earthly ministry” and the beginning of his “reign of glory,” but also foreshadows the resurrection, ascension into heaven, and sharing in glory of all the faithful.
Christ Church (Episcopal) is at Route 33 (General Puller Highway) and Route 638, adjacent to Christchurch School. Services are held at 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
