THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
A most heartfelt thank you to Linda Dolny and Ken Lister for hosting a wonderful parish wide party in honor of Marlene and Bill Halbert at their home last night. The hospitality and warmth offered was truly a gift to our parish. What a great way to gather as a body for fellowship and to give thanks.
This week we plan to send out stewardship letters and pledge cards. Please take time to read the letter and pray about how you will respond to God’s work in and through All Saints’.
This Sunday is All Saints’ Sunday. We plan a grand celebration to include the blessing of a new chalice and paten. There is also a reception following. For us at All Saints’, this Sunday is special. I hope you will join us.
This weekend is our Diocesan Convention. We will gather At Trinity Cathedral on Friday and Saturday. I and your delegates, Dot Wilson, Lisa Wicks, Le Ann Watson and Cindy Perry plan to represent you. Please keep us in your prayers.
