Ascension Press

Catholic Faith Formation that Works. Ascension Press is a leading provider of Catholic Faith Formation programs. Our resources help the faithful of all ages to grow in both understanding and ability to communicate and live the Catholic Faith. In a word, our mission is Conversion.

First of all, it’s not about us.

It’s about an encounter with the living God.

For the past 20 years, everything we have done at Ascension has been aimed to help Catholics have that encounter.

From our Bible studies to our sacramental prep programs, from our Q&A-style books to our free online videos, everything has been focused on that encounter.

That is the longing of our hearts, and the longing of every heart until it rests in God.

After helping over 1,000,000 Catholics and 8,000 parishes, and producing more than 50 faith formation programs, we believe that the “secret” to an encounter with God really isn’t so secret … it can all be found in the promise made by Jesus himself:

For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them —Matthew 18:20

That’s a promise. And it’s a promise from the highest source there is, a promise from the God who never breaks his word.

So we do the best thing any sinner can do in this world; we trust the promise of God; and we base our programs and studies on that promise.

When you run an Ascension program, you are acting on your trust in that promise. You are meeting in a group in the name of Jesus, in the name of understanding his Word, trusting—as we do—in the power of God’s promise that he will truly be present in your midst.

That’s not a light thing to say.

But we didn’t say it.

God did.

Whether you’re just starting out on your faith journey or well along the road, we have something for you because we have been there, too.
