THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
This Sunday we will celebrate Pentecost, the celebration of the birth of the church. It is the day when we give thanks for the gift of the Holy Spirit as God moved to change a small band of disciples and send them out to proclaim Jesus’ resurrection to the world. I hope you will be present for this wonderful day. It is one of five Sundays for which baptism is especially appropriate.
Though we will not have a baptism this Sunday we will renew our Baptismal Vows as we too step out, renewed by God’s Spirit to be His church and proclaim God’s truth to the world.
