We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
Thank you all for all the work that went into Palm Sunday. It was a wonderful day as we enter into Holy Week and as we welcome Jan Melara into our parish. This week is central to our common life and faith. Throughout this week, we tell the story of Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem; his gathering with his disciples for the Seder and the institution of the Eucharist on Maundy Thursday; his betrayal and crucifixion on Good Friday.
Be present this week. Be present for Maundy Thursday. Be present for Good Friday. Be present and wait breathlessly for the truth found in an empty tomb.
