All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
You are all in my prayers and I miss you. As we share in Holy Week, please keep each other in your prayers. This week we walk with Jesus as he shares the seder meal with his disciples and as he is crucified and dies. The services of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday will be at 6:00 pm and will be streamed. We have ironed out some of the wrinkles of the first week and I think it is going well. I hope it can be a time when we will be together though physically separated. Make this time an important time in our common life.
The site to join the service is www.facebook.com/allsaintsclinton.org. You do not have to sign on or sign up to join the service. If you have any questions about how to connect please let me know. Continue to be safe and know, as we come to Easter, the truth of God’s love for us as we share that truth with the world.
Lastly, Jan Melara has graciously offered to make masks for members of our congregation. She has supplies but could use additional filter material for the inside of the masks. Blue disposable shop towels work well for this and if anyone has any to donate, please let Jan know. You can call or text her at 864-684-4930 with material donations or to request a mask.
