In times of yore, a day off work and school to enable people to celebrate the Ascension of our Lord – feels rather ironic this year. No early morning services to mark the occasion, but hopefully some parishes will be able to ring one bell to bring people to prayer and to mark ‘Clap for Carers’ this evening.


A Collect for Ascension Day


Risen Christ,
you have raised our human nature to the throne of heaven:
help us to seek and serve you,
that we may join you at the Father’s side,
where you reign with the Spirit in glory,
now and for ever.
