Who We Are

Ascension has been providing quality Catholic faith formation resources to parishes, faith-sharing groups, schools, families, and individuals since 2001. We have been recognized by Church leaders and educators for producing ground-breaking and award-winning Catholic study programs, videos, books, audio talks, blog articles, and live events. We believe that by meeting people where they are and tapping into their longings, needs, and curiosity, we can help set the stage for them to begin to hear God speaking to their hearts.
