The Ascension of the Lord

May 16, 2023 | Community, Ministries

We commemorate Jesus Christ’s ascension into heaven by celebrating Ascension Day, which occurs on the Thursday 40 days after Easter, this year, May 18. It is a major feast day in the liturgical calendar, and a Holy Day of Obligation in the Catholic Church.


Wednesday, May 17: Vigil Mass at 7:30pm 

Thursday, May 18: Masses at 8:30am and 4:30pm

Eucharistic Revival has begun at St. Francis! On Ascension Thursday, May 18 after the 4:30 Mass, Benediction will be offered with Adoration until 8:00pm. Along with Adoration 9:00am-5:00pm Mondays and Fridays, Thursdays are now added from 5:00pm-8:00pm.

As Fr. Peter has announced, a diocesan wide Eucharistic Congress is scheduled for October 20-22 in Auriesville, NY. Many parishioners are planning to go.

Join us as we celebrate that Jesus, our Risen Lord is with us! Call to pledge an hour of love with our Savior as plans to expand the schedule are in progress; (631) 486-2155.
