The path to a better life starts here

I Heard God Laugh

Prayer is life-changing and empowering but not always easy. Prayer is an antidote to anxiety, an expression of gratitude, a comfort during crisis, and a guide to conflict resolution.
No matter your background or season of life, prayer is attainable and a force of change.

I Heard God Laugh by Matthew Kelly has become a staff favorite. It's half memoir and half how-to.
It's short but packs a punch.

"We are spiritual beings having a physical experience."
Matthew Kelly, I Heard God Laugh

January 17th Homily

Listen to the whispers of your Creator calling gently to you, inviting you to remember that just as the body needs food, so too your soul needs to be nourished.

Ask "God, what do you think I should do?"


At Ascension Parish, we believe the path to a better life is through Jesus. We understand that each faith journey is unique, and we seek to meet and support people wherever they are.
Everyone has a next step on their discipleship path.
