Ascension Episcopal Parish in Portland, Oregon

We welcome 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 Liturgy is Rite I (traditional language and forms) from the Book of Common Prayer. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, we worship at one Mass on Sundays at 9:00 a.m. Childcare is provided.

The rest of the year, we worship at two Sunday Masses. Our 8:00 a.m. service is a said Mass; the 10:00 a.m. is a sung Mass with hymns. Sunday School and childcare are provided during the 10:00 Mass.
