The Ascension is upon us!

Amazingly we are already nearing the end of the Easter season. Where did it go? Hopefully it has been joyful and fruitful for you as we've journeyed with our Risen Lord beyond the tomb. Now it is time to celebrate His Ascension into Heaven, which is a massively important yet often overlooked aspect of our Christian life. Therefore, in preparation for Sunday's celebration, here are some great resources to help you ready your hearts and minds to enter into this astounding mystery and receive the abundance of graces our Lord yearns to lavish upon you.
