Welcome to the Episcopal Church of the Ascension, Hattiesburg’s neighborhood parish! Located in the University Heights Neighborhood, we’re near the vibrant Midtown District of one of Mississippi’s best cities. Our church is easily reached from all areas of the Pine Belt, including the nearby University of Southern Mississippi. We are a diverse family deeply rooted in the sacraments and committed to forming disciples who will carry the message of God’s love and grace into a world that sorely needs the assurance of forgiveness and redemption. We are a group who love Jesus, love people, and would be thrilled to welcome you to our lovely parish. Here, you’ll learn our mission statement is a commitment to all of God’s people:
Where unity does not mean uniformity;
where diversity does not mean division;
where grace abounds.
