Welcome, and thank you for visiting Parish of the Ascension Anglican Church online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available.
Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbour.

Weekly Word

"What are human beings that you are mindful of them, or mortals, that you care for them? You have made them for a little while lower than the angels; you have crowned them with glory and honour, subjecting all things under their feet."

"Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs."

The scripture today speaks of our role as the people of God. From Hebrews we are reminded that we have an important role as human beings in God's creation and the earth's salvation. In Mark we are reminded that children - the overlooked and disenfranchised of Jesus' day are given priority and value in the kingdom.

Parish of the Ascension, Season of Pentecost 2015

Moving Forward in Ministry at the Ascension



June 17, 2015                         

Dear Friends in Christ,

We give thanks to God this day for the gifts of a beautiful spring, and a promising summer.  As the flowers bloom, grass and plants grow at alarming rates, ministry still continues in God’s world, and specifically at the parish of the Ascension.  I share with you some updates for the parish:

  • Summertime, Worship and Reflection

Victoria Larkin will be on vacation from  July 1 to September 8,  and Ina Kearley will be on vacation  from August 1 to September 8.  Canon Burrows will be on vacation from July 15 to August 31, Rev.’d Courage will be on vacation from October 12 to November 12. In the meantime, summer students will be employed at the parish office.  Regular worship will be celebrated on Sundays, 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., as is our custom during the summer months.  Regular Wednesday Holy Communion will be offered throughout the summer in the chapel.

  • September Welcome Back Sunday

On September 13, the parish will be celebrating with Worship, Fellowship, and Fun! This day will incorporate the opening of the Godly Play Programme, information booths for the various ministries and programs being offered for the year, and a Garden party with games, activities, and lots of more surprises. Come along and enjoy the celebration!

  • September Learning for the Staff Team

From September 24 to 28, Canon Burrows, Rev.’d Courage, Ina Kearley and Vicki Larkin will be travelling to the Parish of St. Luke’s Burlington, in order to spend time to learn from their Staff team about ways in which we can enhance ministry at the Ascension. This will provide numerous ideas and opportunities for the parish to grow.

  • Fall Learning Opportunities

Beginning in October, we will be using the Pilgrim resource for Bible Study, from the Church of England, as recommended by the Bishop and the Diocese. These resources will be used for the groups involved in study in the fall and winter. Details will be forthcoming.

  • Opportunities to Give, and Fund Ministry at the Ascension

Included with this letter is an information pamphlet about Pre-Authorized Giving. Pre-Authorized Giving is a proactive way to give in thanksgiving to God for the work and ministry at the Ascension. This enables us to continue our various services and projects such that we can continue to Reach Out to Others, as our motto states. Included also is your Interim Giving Statement, which shows your level of thanksgiving through parish contributions to date. Please consider your ability to respond to God’s call through donations to the parish this summer.

May this summer find you relaxed, full of love and compassion, in all that you do.


Yours in Faith,

The Rev.'d Canon David J. Burrows

   Parish of the Ascension, Mount Pearl

   The Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador
