Ascension is a Roman Catholic Church in Oak Park, Illinois, drawing parishioners from throughout west Chicago and the western suburbs. Ascension parish is known for its beautiful liturgy, the strength of its music ministry, for its outstanding school and religious education programs, and for its welcoming community. This website is designed to acquaint you with the richness and diversity of the Ascension family and to invite you to join us. We especially welcome all newcomers. We hope that you will find a home in the Ascension community and that you will make it a center for your faith life. We encourage you to visit, and to get involved in whatever way your gifts lead you!
Many opportunities await us during the season of Advent to “prepare the way of the Lord.” Please consider at least one special opportunity for you to spend some time in prayer and self-reflection. All of these events can be found in our bulletin and posted elsewhere on our website.
