Updated Guidelines for In-Person Worship
As of September 12, 2021
Ascension & Holy Trinity’s Vestry is thrilled to incorporate new ways of gathering together for in-person worship per CDC, Statewide, and Diocesan Guidelines.
If you or your family members are sick or unable to adhere to the recommendations we have established, we invite you to join us online for our live-streamed service.
What to Expect at our In-Church Worship Services:
Indoors, face masks are required by all (according to the Diocese mandate). Masks are available at the back of the church.
Holy Communion will be administered at the altar rail and at the base of the chancel steps. Communion will be the consecrated bread only. We ask those receiving at the altar rail to distance themselves.
The offering plates will be passed through the pews. And the offering, both offering collection and the elements for Holy Eucharist, will be processed to the altar rail to the acolyte.
The Gospel Procession will be into the middle of the aisle, once again, connecting the importance of Jesus coming into our midst.
Fellowship Hour, cookouts, and other eating events have reconvened inside and outside of the building.

Sabbath in Our Strides: Hiking
Saturday, October 23, 2021
Mt. Airy Forest
Do you ever find yourself hiking in the beauty of God’s creation and think, “This feels like church to me?” Well, what if you could hike with fellow followers of Christ of all ages and reflect on Scripture individually and as a community? Join St. James Episcopal and Ascension & Holy Trinity Episcopal on Saturday morning October 23rd at 10:30 am at Mt. Airy Forest as we experience God through our senses and Scripture reflection. Bring a sack lunch to eat at the end of the hike and bring a friend along.
The moderate hike should be around 50-60 minutes with some ups and downs. If it rains prior to the hike, there will be some mud. Here is a link to the trail map.
Directions to Meeting Location: Enter off Colerain Ave. Follow signs for Everybody’s Treehouse. Park in the circle (13 on map) just past Everybody’s Treehouse. We’ll gather near the restrooms on the right side as you head into the circle. [Trailhead is to the left of the restrooms.]
Suggested Items to Carry:
First Aid Kit
Several Bottles of Water
Plastic Bag for Trash
Questions or interested in coming? Contact the church office at 513-821-5341 or Fr. Eric at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to regularly do hikes in 2022, so please let us know if you’re interested (even if you can’t make it on the 23rd).
Cincinnati Playhouse Pod Play:
The Edge of Town
Experience the audio play located right here in Wyoming, OH!
A Pod Play
Written and Created by Deuces II
Directed by Daunielle Rasmussen and Piper N. Davis
Performed by Deuces II, Phillip Cotter, Mahogany Fleming, Jahra Ervin
Music Composed by Phillip Cotter, Jahra Ervin, Kofi Beats, and Deuces II
Audio Mixed by Phillip Cotter
Available For Free on SoundCloud
The Edge of Town is the journey of a Black male as he navigates this world and searches for truth and hope by reflecting on the past, present, and future. His journey includes walks through downtown Wyoming and along Oak Street and a visit to the City building, which once housed the African American School.
What is a Pod Play?
The Pod Plays Project makes creative use of technology, storytelling, and outdoor space. Playwrights were asked to choose a unique location in Cincinnati and write an original audio play that makes use of their chosen setting. When listeners tune in to the audio file and begin the play, they’ll be guided through the location as the story unfolds, interacting with the same views, spots, and markers as the characters in the story they’re streaming. Pod Plays are free to the public and can be listened to at any time.
Recommended for ages 13 and up. While a powerful story of the search for truth and hope, the story also contains themes of racism, injustice, and trauma related to the Black experience.
This Pod Play is designed to be listened to while walking through Downtown Wyoming, starting at the flagpole in front of Wyoming Middle School at 17 Wyoming Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45215.
