About Us

A Stewardship Parish, Sharing our God-given Gifts in Service

Ascension is a Roman Catholic Parish in Oak Park, Illinois, known for the strength of its music ministry, for its outstanding school and Religious Education programs, and for its deeply rooted community. 

This web site is designed to acquaint you with the richness and diversity of the Ascension family and to invite you to join us.  Come to a liturgy or to a Taize service; come to visit our school or parish office and let us show you around our campus.

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 come to visit, and to get involved in whatever way your gifts lead you!
