Feast of the Ascension of the Lord

05-16-2021Fr. Dan Connealy

Happy Sunday!

This Sunday we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord. In the Preface Prayer of Mass this Sunday the Church prays,

“He ascended, not to distance himself from our lowly state
But that we, his members, might be confident of following
Where he, our Head and Founder, has gone before.”
