About Ascension

The Vestry is comprised of those members of the parish who have been nominated and elected to serve a three-year term as part of the leadership and decision-making body of the parish.

The membership of the Vestry is made up of young and old, newly arrived and long-time members, anyone who feels invested enough in the life and future of AMC to be willing to give of their time, talent and treasure to lead the parish forward.  The vestry works closely with the Rector, through monthly meetings and an annual planning retreat, to direct wisely all the resources we have been given.  We do so out of a desire to deepen our relationship to God (as a reality we each can know first-hand), enabling us to serve those in our lives from a place of vulnerability and compassion.

"I have a wife Leigh and 2 boys, Eddie & Patrick. AMC is the only church I have been part of as well as the rest of my family. We were all baptized at AMC, Leigh & I were married at AMC as was my mother (Mary) and father. Eddie and Patrick were acolytes and Eddie received the Judith Grant Scholarship.
