THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
During the season of Lent, we are offering weekly Evening Prayer services followed by a light supper shared with Epiphany in Laurens. Wednesday, February 28th we will meet at Epiphany at 6:00 pm. The Rev. Paul Abernathy will be preaching. I hope that you will join us.
Sam Wilson, our archivist and historian, has written a brief newsletter regarding the status of the work being done at All Saints’ in part for preparation of our 70th anniversary in 2021. You can access it in the history section of our website.
