Our celebrations this Sunday will depend on whether we are following the Roman Rite or Common Worship. The Roman Rite kept Ascension Day on Thursday, so The Seventh Sunday after Easter will be observed. However Common Worship will celebrate Sunday after Ascension Day, and will keep to the theme of the Ascension. Whichever Rite we are following, please ensure that you join in with a service.
