All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
Wednesday, May 2nd we will celebrate and give thanks for the life of Harriet McKee. Our service will be at 10:30 followed by a reception in the Parish Hall.
We have needs in our lay ministry areas on Sunday mornings. Please consider taking on a new ministry such as becoming an usher or acolyte, lay reader or Eucharistic minister. We are happy to provide all the training you need. Your ministry is important for our common life. I hope you will consider joining us and offering yourself to a new ministry. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We are also looking for those with the ability to read another language. On the day of Pentecost, May 20th, the gospel will be read in many languages all at once. “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.” Acts 2:4. If you are comfortable reading in any different language, please let me know. I will make sure you have the text before the practice on Sunday, May 13th.
Please remember Sunday is the first Sunday of the month and we have our outreach offering going to Episcopal Relief and Development.
