Ascension Parishioners to Celebrate Community While Remembering the Past with “Mass on the Grass” – Sunday, July 1st

Press Release posted 6/21/12 – Episcopal Church of the Ascension,25 East Laurel Avenue in Sierra Madre, will be celebrating its annual start of summer with “Mass on the Grass” on July 1, 2012 at 10:15 a.m.

For more than 20 years the community and parishioners have gathered together to celebrate a community who pulled together and restored the Church, which was significantly damaged in the Sierra Madre earthquake, with an outdoor celebration – as they did in 1991.  It was through faith, strength and fellowship with the community that Churchgoers were able to restore the Church’s nationally recognized historic structure (designed by English architect Ernest Coxhead in 1889.) The outdoor mass on the Church’s beautiful grounds recognizes this accomplishment and celebrates the blessings of nature with family and friends.

“Mass on the Grass” is followed by a picnic on the Church grounds. Everyone is welcome to join us in this celebration. No reservations required.

This event makes for a wonderful family outing to meet new neighbors and check out a wonderful community church. For more information, please call (626) 355-1133 or visit:
