THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
From the Rector:
Thank you to all who helped make our first Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper (in a long time) a great success! Between members, friends, PC students, and members of the community, we had around 70 people enjoy pancakes, sausage and bacon, and baked apples. A great time was had by all.
During the season of Lent, we will be offering weekly Evening Prayer services followed by a light supper shared with Epiphany in Laurens as well as two Film & Theology series events. We begin on Wednesday, Feb. 21st at All Saints at 6:00 pm. The Rev. Paul Abernathy will preach. A full schedule is located in “Upcoming Events.” The first Film & Theology event is this Sunday, February 25th at 5:00 pm followed by a chili supper and discussion. The film is Cool Hand Luke. Please make time for this event and bring a friend.
Also, as most of you are aware, Dale Osborn Rains, a long time lay minister and verger here at All Saints, died last week. A celebration of Dale’s life will be held on Friday, March 2nd at 11:00 am with reception to follow in the Parish House.
