THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
Work on the Prayer Garden has come a long way this week. With better weather conditions, Henry Sullivan has worked very hard getting many of the plantings in place. Here are a couple of pictures to show the progress:
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.
We’ll be continuing with adult formation class this Sunday studying Glorious Companions. Mitchell Felton will lead the discussion on C.S. Lewis. It should be a good one!
Finally, this Sunday is Mother’s Day as well as Good Shepherd Sunday. The men of the vestry are hosting our coffee hour. Come and enjoy.
