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