Ascension Day

40 days after Easter is Ascension Day, this year on May 10, when Jesus ascended into heaven to be with his Father. This day is set in Scripture: Acts 1:1-5, 10-11.

The Cathedral will commemorate Ascension Day on Sunday, May 13.

We’ll read the Biblical account in Acts 1:1-11 and our hymns and music will be Ascension-themed. On Ascension Day we recognize that Jesus is no longer here, bodily, on earth, limited to one place or one time. Now we recognize him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, seated in glory at the right hand of the Father, and accessible everywhere, all the time, to everyone.
