Ascension Family Faith

We are not Adult Faith or Youth Faith; we are not ACS or YFF; we are Family Faith! Join us for engaging catechesis, interactive faith discovery, and an atmosphere designed for your entire family. We believe that faith shared and experienced together brings families closer to one another and to our Lord. So pull up a few chairs (or 10!), and join us for faith served up family style!
