In 2022 Holy Ascension celebrated the marriage of Patrick and Sophia Chernjavsky, began serving Vespers and catechism classes on Friday evenings, and welcomed Metropolitan Demetrius for our lesser parish feast day. We also celebrated the baptism Felicity Chernjavsky, initiated two new catechumens, and completed a number of building and grounds projects.
