Plan Your Visit
Before coming to Ascension I served as an Assistant Priest at the Church of the Transfiguration NYC, on the staff of the Diocese of NY as Episcopal Chaplain to NYU and the surrounding campuses and as an Assisting Priest at the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin Times Square. As no bio captures a person I will leave you with a few other tidbits or deep commitments: I was a basketball maniac for much of my life, and I have NBA season tickets. I was and am a devotee of hip hop music though my tastes run more old school than contemporary unless it resembles the hey-day of east coast rap. I am a devotee or archetypal psychology and a reader in esoteric religious practices. For more about me, check out our Website. Peace

RyanThis is a great community with a great leader in the Rev. John Merz. The church itself is beautiful--tucked away on a lovely street in Greenpoint--and is the oldest church in Greenpoint, having been established in 1846. I attend the Sunday 5pm service, which is casual and contemplative. We are a growing community of open-minded people. Come check, check, check us out.
