Special Parish Meeting

11:30 a.m. September 29th In the Undercroft

A Special Parish Meeting will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, September 29th in the Undercroft. The purpose of the meeting will be to share, discuss, amend and vote on proposed changes to the Bylaws. The bulk of the proposed changes address the election of vestry members, for example, the makeup of the Nominating Committee and how it will function, along with the method by which the wardens will be chosen. Other proposed changes include requiring a yearly audit and moving the start of the church’s fiscal year to January. It is of vital importance that as many members as possible attend the meeting, so that these important changes can be discussed. Copies of the proposed new Bylaws will be available at the Ascension Expo on September 15th. Please stop by our booth to share your thoughts with Zadinga, Susan, Berenice and Gordon.

New to Ascension?

The Episcopal Church of the Ascension is a progressive, multicultural Christian community in metropolitan D.C. with a passion for service, diverse worship, and life long spiritual formation. We believe that God continues to be revealed in all cultures in every era. We treasure the opportunities for mutual evangelism we encounter in our church and in our world. Our worship is a celebration of God’s abiding love. We are a community of unconditional welcome, inviting anyone to our worship community. We endeavor to speak newcomers’ languages and meet them in the cultures of their homes. Christianity means action. We see a fundamental connection between the freely given life of Christ and the giving of our lives in the service of others. The Christian journey is a lifelong pursuit. We have a tradition of living a life in Christ by enriching our understanding through study, and converting our hearts through shared spiritual practice. – Seamus Welsh Find out more...
