Episcopal Church of the Ascension, 25 East Laurel Avenue in Sierra 
Madre will be celebrating its annual start of Fall season with the 
“Ministry Celebration” on Sunday, September 16th following the 
Mass at 9:30 a.m. 

All are welcome and encouraged to this festival of ministries, which 
features decorated booths that illustrate various church ministries 
in serving the needy, spreading God’s word, educating children, 
making music and worshipping God. Other opportunities include 
feeding the hungry, attending to the sick and visiting shut-ins as well 
as assisting the homeless. Daughters of the King and Cursillo will 
also have information available. The Church’s ministries are great 
ways to give back and share in opportunities of fellowship at Church 
of the Ascension. Refreshments will be served. 

The event will provide an opportunity to learn about Christian 
Education at Ascension Church including sign-ups for Children’s 
Sunday School (Catechesis), Young People’s Ministries and for adults 
to learn about small groups which begin meeting in October. Small 
Groups meet between church services in Parish or Hawks Hall. 

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: www.ascension-
