THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector
Yesterday was wonderful. I want to thank the men of the vestry for making coffee hour such a great time with the celebration of Mother’s Day and a special birthday for Lois Wilson.
The work on the garden continues. We are waiting for the delivery of the benches, a dogwood and the placement of St. Francis. The Blessing of the Garden is scheduled for Pentecost Sunday, June 9th. We’ll follow with a covered dish luncheon in the Parish Hall. I hope you all will be able to be here for this special event.
Our formation class continues for the next two weeks. Our last class will be on May 26th.
Please know how much your presence means Sunday by Sunday, as we seek to continue to live out our mission and welcome. It is one of the greatest acts of stewardship you can give. Your presence is a reminder of how God continues to work in us and in the world around us. You remain in my prayers.
