All Saints' Episcopal Church

Thursday, May 16, 2024

Upon our return from our multi-week holiday to Scotland, London, and New York City, Sally and I are looking back on a beautiful time. Now, it's time for us to reintegrate into the routines and activities that make our community at All Saints so unique.

I want to emphasize what I mentioned in the announcements last Sunday. I want to give special recognition to three individuals: Marcia Brooks, whose enthusiastic discussion about the Black Madonna brought together a vibrant community of twenty-four people on Wednesday evening; Sue Jordan, whose persistence in 2023 kickstarted the Women's Bible Study, which has now blossomed into a thriving group of eleven; and Vip Vipavetz, whose efforts in organizing the Spring Cleaning and Picnic, as well as forming a new men's group, have added new dimensions to our community. I am genuinely grateful for each of your invaluable contributions!

New Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEMs) Needed

Our worship services are sustained by the dedicated service of only three Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEMs) at each service. However, to ensure the seamless flow of our worship, we urgently require at least five LEMs for each service. LEMs must be confirmed congregants. As a LEM, you will play a pivotal role in enriching the worship experience for yourself and others through reading, assisting at the altar, and serving communion. Please get in touch with me, Nancy Atkinson, or Christina in the Church Office if you feel called to this vital role.

-Sr. Warden Steve Hotchkiss
