Prayer and Pastoral Care
Members and loved ones of our community who are in need or who serve in the military or humanitarian roles are prayed for in Sunday worship weekly. If you would like to add yourself or a loved one, please email The Rev. Marilyn Baldwin or call (651) 439-2609.
You can (either instead of or in addition to Sunday worship) also be included in the intercessory prayers of our prayer chain. These are members of a prayer team who commit to pray regularly for those in need on the list during their daily or weekly personal prayers. Please email The Rev. Marilyn Baldwin or call (651) 439-2609.
Ascension is blessed with several of Eucharistic Visitors, parishioners who are specially trained and licensed to that take Holy Communion to members of the parish who are not able to come to church on Sunday. If you are interested in having Ascension’s Eucharistic Visitors bring communion to you or someone else, please email The Rev. Marilyn Baldwin or call (651) 439-2609.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Those who create Ascension’s prayer shawls surround themselves and their work with prayer. As they knit or crochet each shawl, prayers and blessings are offered for the person who will ultimately receive the shawl. These shawls are placed on Ascension’s altar to receive a final blessing before they are sent on their way. If you would like to take a prayer shawl to someone in need, please email The Rev. Marilyn Baldwin or call (651) 439-2609.
Letter/Card Writing Ministry
Members send letters/cards to those celebrating a birthday, experiencing loss and grief, serving in the military, etc. (Note: Supplies will be provided if needed). To report someone in need of a card or to offer to write cards, please email The Rev. Marilyn Baldwin or call (651) 439-2609.
