The Church of the Ascension is also known to many as "The Old Stone Church". We are planning a special celebration in honor of all who have served our nation on Sunday May 29th at 530pm. We will begin with an honor guard and prayers at the memorial burial site behind the church followed with Evening Prayer in the church. The Church of the Ascension is blessed with both a beautiful and historic place to worship. During the US Civil War (1861-1865). "The Old Stone Church" was first designated Union Army surgical hospital. The surgical hospital received manor casualties from the Battle of Blackburns Ford (1861) and during First Manassas (1861) and second Manassas (1862). The Old Stone church as a hospital was traded back and forth between the medical departments of the Confederate and Union forces with the changes of the battle line. Servicemen returning from WWII built the Parish Hall in 1944-1945.If you have served this great nation of ours we invite you to wear your uniform in recognition of your service. Please join us for our first Memorial Day Celebration!
