About

The Church of the Ascension & Saint Agnes

We are an anglo-catholic parish in union with the Washington diocese of the Episcopal Church, which is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Our diverse, urban congregation comprises families and individuals—both young and old—from the immediate neighborhood and from the larger Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

If you would like more information about our parish, please do not hesitate to explore this web site or to contact the parish office in person, by telephone, or e-mail during the week— or introduce to yourself Fr. Dominique after any of our services.

If you have no church home, we invite you to worship with us.

Our location:  Massachusetts Avenue & 12th Street, N.W. in downtown Washington, DC.

Our main Sunday service is High Mass and sermon with choir and organ, at 10:00 am. Child care is available during the 10:00 am mass.

Sunday Low Mass is at 8:00 am at the Lady Chapel and at 12:30 pm in the St. Francis Chapel.

During the week, daily masses and evening prayer attract parishioners and others who work in downtown Washington and on Capitol Hill.
