THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
Alicia and I are glad to be home after a week away. It was a wonderful week but we missed being with you.
This Sunday, October 21st is “PC Sunday”. We are looking forward to a grand celebration of the wonderful relationship we have and have had over the years with Presbyterian College. This week we also will celebrate the adoption of Brandon Parsons-Wells, son of Rachel and Jacob Parsons-Wells, during our service. Our guest preacher will be Peter Hobbie. Make plans to be here and for a reception following the service.
There are many events occurring as we move forward in our common life. One is the garden. Take a look at the new sidewalk! Over the new few weeks will begin landscaping. If you would like to give to the renewal of this space, pledge cards are available at the church.
