Ascension Episcopal Parish

Ascension Episcopal Parish in Portland, Oregon welcomes worshipers of all ages who are seeking Christ through traditional worship in an intimate, beautiful setting.

We are a historic church in Portland’s West Hills.  We are part of the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon and the Episcopal Church of the USA, a self-governing branch of the Anglican Communion.



Our Rector, Father Phillip Craig, and his lovely family, bring a modern, refreshing influence to our traditional heritage, allowing both young and old to enjoy the family feel of our small  community and our worship services.

We worship at two Sunday masses. Our 8:00 am service is a said mass; the 10:00 a.m. is a sung mass with hymns.

During this service, school aged children (5-11) are welcome to attend our Sunday School program which opens with ringing the chapel bell along with Fr. Craig, to begin services.  We also provide childcare for the preschool aged children at this service.

Our beautiful chapel regularly hosts special events ranging from lectures to classical recitals. We also host musical performers for potluck dinners through our Songwriter’s Series. Please see our Calendar Page for more information!

Our Liturgy is Rite I (traditional language and forms) from the Book of Common Prayer.  We welcome you and your family to join us!
