Welcome Worshippers


It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Ascension and St. Edmund parish website. Explore all that Ascension and St. Edmund has to offer.  Join us for Sunday worship or explore the numerous opportunities for prayer, outreach and fellowship. We encourage all families with children to explore our parish school and religious education programs.


To stay current on parish events explore our calendar and news & announcements, check the weekly bulletin or subscribe to our weekly e-newsletter.


Located south of Lake Street in Oak Park, Ascension and St. Edmund church sites, are spiritual homes for both young and old, new families, families with children, singles, and seniors.  Ascension Catholic School draws from Oak Park and its surrounding communities.  We offer many programs and activities, and are especially noted for our commitment to issues of peace and justice.


Our Music programs are highly developed and attract scores of people who participate in our various choirs. Our Staff is happy to assist. Contact information for staff members is available on the site.  Worship on Saturday and Sunday is the time that our welcoming and diverse community comes together to hear and reflect upon the Word of God, and to enter into Christ’s saving sacrifice through the Eucharist. If this “virtual visit” to the parish is your first time with us, we hope that you will be drawn to a more personal visit some time soon.
