Evensong Ascent Welch

We recently received back the results of the chromosomal testing that was done after our miscarriage.

Amongst other results, we learned that whom we lost was a daughter.

We are very pleased to have a third daughter – (there is an infinity of time to know her in the resurrection).

We also have named her – Evensong Ascent

Ascent is for the Psalms 120-134, the “Songs of Ascent” which celebrate going upward to the temple for worship.

Evensong is an alternate name for the Anglican liturgical office of Evening Prayer, where people gather for prayer, songs and readings of scripture. “Evensong” is a common term for the event, but originates from the special times when the office is celebrated chorally. (see the Wikipedia link above).
