Church of the Ascension & St. Michael the Archangel Parish have teamed up to co-host Together, a date night ministry for married couples. Join us on Saturday evenings for drinks, appetizers, and conversation. Through collaborative learning, inter-parish fellowship, and dynamic speaker presentations, marriages will go deeper and faith communities will grow broader — all in an authentic, fun, and pressure-free atmosphere.

The topics for each evening will be “served a la carte,” meaning, you do not need to prepare with reading or homework ahead of time, nor do you need to attend every available evening (although you are certainly encouraged to do so)! All married couples are invited to come — so bring a friend from your neighborhood or from a neighboring parish.


Church of the Ascension and St. Michael the Archangel Parish invite you to join us for a “Pandemic approved” evening Together (that is carefully planned to keep you safely Apart!). All Married couples are invited to join us. This date night evening is free, but registration is required. See below for details.

Too often we hang onto our past hurts — those inflicted from outside of our marriages and also from within. Inadvertently, the barbs of our past hurts can also injure our spouses when they try to embrace us. Forgiveness is simply letting go of something painful, and allowing God to heal us so we can be our best selves. Through forgiveness we give ourselves more fully (and less prickly) as wonderful gifts to our spouses. 

Wrath and anger are hateful things, yet the sinner hugs them tight.  (Sirach 27:30)

Remember to Bring:
– Lawn Chairs and/or Blanket
– Money for Touring Taps (Optional)
