THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
Fall is in the air and a renewed energy is among us! Yesterday we celebrated our continued relationship with Presbyterian College with “PC Sunday”. Thank you to all that participated, especially Julie Keadle for coordinating our reception, and those with ties to the college who ministered in various ways during the service. The Rev. Dr. Peter H. Hobbie delivered a stirring homily. We look forward to hearing more from Peter in November during Adult Formation classes.
Please note on your calendars next Sunday, October 28th at 5:00 PM. At the home of Linda Dolny and Ken Lister, we are having a parish wide reception with special intention of honoring Marlene & Bill Halbert. This will be a time for us to give thanks for all they have done in our midst and I hope you will make time to take part in this wonderful celebration.
