THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
We have had a busy few weeks as we’ve prepared to ready for the season of Lent. We are now in full swing with our Wednesday Lenten Evening Prayer and Supper beginning on March 4th. We will have Evening Prayer followed by a soup supper each Wednesday in Lent ending on April 1st. Listed below are those who have signed up to bring soup, bread and tea this week.
Soup – Alicia Davis, Howard Pierce, Dot Wilson
Bread – Alicia Davis, Dot Wilson

A Film & Theology Event is scheduled for Sunday, March 15th at 5:00 pm. Bring a dish to share for conversation after watching “A Way Way Back”. Popcorn and drinks provided.
The Bishop’s visit is Sunday, March 22nd when he will be here to confirm, receive and reaffirm 12 congregants who attend All Saints’ regularly. This is sure to be a wonderful testament to the life and vibrancy that is All Saints’. I also encourage you to arrive early and attend the Bishop’s forum at 9:30 am. This is an opportunity to hear about the life of the diocese and to ask questions in an open dialogue with him.
