We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
What a glorious celebration we had yesterday! We began with Christian Formation taught by Peter Hobbie, a retired professor of religion from Presbyterian College. PC Sunday continued with their Chaplains as guest preachers and many of our own parishioners participating in the service in some way. A lovely reception was held in thanksgiving for this special relationship. Later in the day we continued by celebrating St. Francis of Assisi with the blessing of animals. Dogs, cats, bunnies and goats were out in full force and it was a joyful time for all. Many thanks to all who helped with both of these events, especially Julie Keadle, Jane Parris, Sharon Sullivan, Lila & Clark McKean, Howard Pierce, Laura Haupfear, Alicia Davis, John & Maryanne Laske and Trena Barnes. See more pictures of the day at the end of the Newsbytes.
We have entered a busy time in our common life. I hope you will make it a priority to be here each week as we proclaim God’s love and welcome those who might not have a place to worship.
May God continue to bless and keep us.
