Whether you are living in the Como area and looking for an English-language church community, visiting for a holiday, or looking for the perfect place to celebrate your marriage, we are here for you. 

THE 2024 SEASON

The Church Of the Ascension, Cadenabbia,  started our new season on Sunday 5th May  2024, with Holy Communion at 10:30a.m..

On this site and our Facebook and Instagram accounts we'll be posting regular updates of days and times of services.  We'll also be aiming to have the church open as much as possible for private prayer and contemplation, and for visitors to enjoy the beautiful interior.

Our regular priest for the season will be Revd. Robert Morley. However, our notable services, all at 10.30 a.m., this year will be:

July 21st & 28th, we welcome the Reverend Julia Lacey who will be covering while Robert is away

October 13th, final service of the season

We are part of the Anglican Church, belonging to the Diocese in Europe and we welcome all visitors of the Christian faith to our services of Holy Communion.  These are usually held every Sunday at 10.30 am.  There are occasional services outside of the summer season which will be announced on the Services page and our Facebook page.

The church is run by a small group of residents and our visiting Chaplain, with the support of the Chaplain of All Saints, Milan. In addition to the weekly services, which attract visitors and holiday home owners from many countries, it hosts occasional concerts, detailed on the Concerts and Music page.

The Church is also a popular choice among those seeking to have a wedding blessing service, renewal of marriage vows or baptisms - please visit our Wedding Blessings page for details on how you can celebrate your special day in the stunning surroundings of our Church on the most beautiful of the Italian Lakes.

Members of the congregation, their families and friends work hard to keep the church in good condition and to raise funds. If you would like to help please contact us. If you could find it in your heart to support us financially please use the link below.
