We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
Here at All Saints’, pastoral care is central to our common life. At its heart is God’s love which we share with one another. We do it well; it’s in our DNA this desire to reach out to those in need. To continue to do this work well, I’d like to centralize our work so that we don’t miss an opportunity to respond. To that end, I ask that we all use my email address firstname.lastname@example.org to communicate pastoral needs within the parish. If you know of anyone who is sick, hurt, grieving, or needs a meal please use this address so I can add them to my prayers. It also allows me to follow up with any additional needs.
My hope is to facilitate the work we do in pastoral care together so that coordination is done effectively and no one is overlooked or missed. I’m so grateful for the remarkable work the committee does.
Christian formation is up and running. Sunday I will lead a class in the Parish Hall on writing icons. We will be examining the techniques used to create icons as done in the 14th and 15th centuries. I hope this will prove to be a fascinating presentation. We plan to show the movie “St. Vincent” with Bill Murray as our next Film & Theology presentation on Pentecost Sunday, May 20th at 5:00 pm.
