Lost (& Found): Ascension

Ascension was founded in 1947.  It later merged with St. Paul to become Ascension/St. Paul.  In 2008, the parish was suppressed and the parishoners invited to join St. Ann in Normandy.  Ascension is located of Natural Bridge Rd, about 1/2 mile east Lucas & Hunt.  The buildings are still in use:  the church is being used by another christian church and the school is being used by Girls Inc.
