The Lord's Ascension, William Henry Margetson (1861–1940)God is gone up with a merry noise: and the Lord with the sound of the trumpet. Alleluia.

Ascension Day is Thursday 18 May.

On this Holy Day of Obligation, the usual Thursday evening Divine Worship Mass will be sung at Christ the King Church at 7:00pm, after Exposition from 6pm. Mass will also be celebrated at noon.

Between Ascension Day and Pentecost, from Friday 19 May to Saturday 27 May, the Church prays for the coming of the Holy Spirit in its oldest Novena. You can join in that each day on this site and with our Novena booklet.
