Ascension Day is Thursday, May 10. Since this festival always lands on a Thursday, the 40th day after Easter, it is often neglected. However, this is the festival which recognizes Jesus ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God, and enables him to fulfill his promise that he will be with us always, even to the end of the world. While Good Shepherd will not be having a service on May 10 you can attend...
– St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church (17810 Farmington Road), Livonia – 6:30 PM service.
– St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church (1343 Penniman Ave), Plymouth – 7:00 PM service.
NOTE: While Good Shepherd will not observe Ascension Day on Thursday, we will be transferring the festival to Sunday, May 13.
