Hello. I am so happy you have found your way to our website.
I am Father Vincent Black, the spiritual leader here at the Church of the Ascension. I am a native Clevelander and graduate of John Carroll University. I lived and taught in Japan for four years and taught middle school in Lakewood before going to seminary at Bexley Hall. Since fall of 2009 I have served as Canon for Christian Formation on the bishop's staff for the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio (dohio.org). And since September 2013, I have been blessed to serve as priest here at Ascension.
I am thrilled to be part of this growing spiritual community. We are located on the east end of Lakewood between Garfield Middle School and the Lakewood Garden Center and have developed good partnerships with both. In fact, I invite you to join us any Sunday for worship, conversation, study, and fellowship and afterwards to stop in and see Paul at the Garden Center.
If you are looking to nurture your spirituality, wrestle with questions about life's purpose and meaning, and encounter God who loves you, no exceptions I hope you will come and join us on this journey.
I look forward to getting to know you.
