Greetings and welcome to Church of the Ascension in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! 

Church of the Ascension has been a vibrant and faithful congregation of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Colorado for over 100 years.  In this long history, I now joyfully serve as the 10th Rector of the parish.  We are located on 6th Ave and Gilpin St., just two blocks south of Cheesman Park in the heart of the the city of Denver. 

I welcome you, your family and your friends to this community of worship, joy, fellowship and care.  Here you will find a place of rest and refreshment for your soul in our Sunday worship.  You will find people of all ages and walks of life who journey together on their Christian pilgrimage and who call this beloved parish their home. 

Through daily prayer, beautiful and meaningful worship and music, nurture and care for our children and youth and outreach to the city and beyond, Ascension lives as a vital community of faith.  I hope you will feel and know that you are most welcome here. 

As the Rector of this parish, I am available for pastoral care, for conversation, and for prayer. I warmly invite you into the life of this wonderful community.  Explore this webpage to learn more about the life of this parish.  You can learn about our worship and music, get to know the staff, and find out about events and happenings throughout the year. If there is anything your parish can assist you with, call our office at 303-388-5978.  And I look forward to seeing you around Church of the Ascension.
