About Holy Ascension of Christ Orthodox Church

Holy Ascension of Christ Orthodox Church is a traditional Orthodox parish under His Eminence Metropolitan Demetrius of America. Holy Ascension is a welcoming home to all searching for “the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”- [Jude 1:3] Our growing parish is located just outside the city of Rochester and is open to all. Our mission is to be light to the world around us and to call all to the fullness of faith in Jesus Christ in his Church. We are the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church founded on the rock of the Apostles.

"O Death, where is thy sting? O Hell, where is thy victory? Christ is risen, and thou are overthrown. Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen. Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice. Christ is risen, and life reigns. Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in the grave. For Christ, being risen from the dead, is become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. To Him be glory and dominion unto ages of ages. Amen."

-Saint John Chrysostom
