Jesus leaves the disciples, but sends them out with a promise of the Holy Spirit

Ascension Day is sort of an orphan holiday for the church. In Luther’s Day people would get the day off. Today, most people don’t really know what it’s about, since it falls in the middle of the work week. This short (5 Min.) video should help you remember the story and to celebrate this holy day.

Worship Liturgy

Prayer of the Day

Almighty God, your blessed Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, ascended far above all heavens that he might fill all things. Mercifully give us faith to trust that, as he promised, he abides with us on earth to the end of time, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
