Ascension Parish

Ascension Parish

Established in 

Ascension Parish was established in 2010 but has a long and spirited history in Forest City. Once home to five separate catholic parishes, Forest City remains a community with a vibrant faith which continues to deepen and evolve with changes in our local and global culture and changes in demographics.

One thing that certainly has not changed or will not change is our parish’s commitment to the teachings of Sacred Scripture and Tradition, our devout celebration of the sacraments of the Church and our commitment to bringing the message of God’s love and mercy to all, especially as we serve our brothers and sisters.

Borne from the parishes of Sacred Heart of Jesus (Polish), St. Agnes (Territorial), St. Anthony (Lithuanian), St. Joseph (Slovenian); St. Michael (Slovak), Ascension Parish serves the spiritual needs of 460 families and reaches out to our neighbors in Forest City (Vandling, Richondale, Browndale) and beyond.
