All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
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.
Pentecost Sunday is May 20th – we will have a rehearsal for the Gospel readers immediately following the service this Sunday, May 13th. On Pentecost, it is the tradition in the Episcopal Church to wear the color red to signify the Holy Spirit. Don’t forget to wear red!
Please remember Sunday is the second Sunday of the month so please remember to bring your nonperishable food donations for the United Ministries food baskets.
