Ascension Day

Ascension Day, also known as The Feast of the Ascension of Jesus, Ascension Thursday and Holy Thursday, is celebrated on the fortieth day after Easter.  It marks the Christian belief, that Jesus ascended into Heaven at this time. To celebrate this day, the whole community of Corbenic took to the countryside for a hike up a hill.  

It was a beautifully sunny day, with clear blue skies which set the scene for a well-earned rest at the top. 

Lunch was enjoyed amongst the heather and a passage was read to mark the occasion.  

Everyone decended to the buses in the afternoon, tired out but having had a great community experience.
