Parish Eucharist for the Festival of the Ascension
Time & Location
13 May 2021, 19:30
St Mary's Church, Claremont Gardens, Whitley Bay NE26 3SF, UK
The fifty days of Easter form a single festival period in which the tone of joy created at the Easter Vigil on Easter Day is sustained as we celebrate the risen Christ.
On the fortieth day there has from the late fourth century been a particular celebration of Christ’s ascension. He commissions his disciples to continue his work, he promises the gift of the Holy Spirit, and then he is no longer among them in the flesh. The ascension is therefore closely connected with the theme of mission.
Whether you have been coming all your life, or whether this is the first time for you, you are very welcome and we look forward to seeing you.
This service will also be streamed to our YouTube Channel.
Please wear a mask and follow social distancing advice on arrival.
