THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
What a glorious Christmas season we have had at All Saints. Thank you to the Altar Guild, choirs, acolytes, lectors, intercessors and all who made this season wonderful. I write to you on the 9th day of Christmas.
On January 6th we celebrate Epiphany and with it comes a new season. It is the season of “aha” and the season of light. We will also begin a new Sunday Formation series on the Episcopal Church. This class is for all as we learn together about the peculiarities of our denomination. I hope you will come with your questions.
One of the events for the season after Epiphany will take place on January 14th at 5:00 pm in the Parish House. We will be watching the award winning documentary “Searching for Sugarman”. I hope you will come. We’ll have chili with all the fixings and drinks for supper. For comfort you might want to bring a pillow or lawn chair as we gather to examine the film and this season.
