Parish Hall Painting Begins Monday!
You may have noticed that our parish hall's old, raggedy divider has recently been taken down. As the next step in our renovation process, freshening up for our eventual new rector, the repainting of the parish hall will begin this Monday. It is expected to take between a week and a week-and-a-half, and of course we will be avoiding use of the space during that time.
Stewardship Letters Are On The Way! It is stewardship season once again! Your Stewardship Chair, Wardens, and All Saints staff have been hard at work getting this year's stewardship letter put together, and if you were on our mailing list you'll probably have received yours by now or will be receiving it shortly. We also have these letters available at the church to hand out on Sundays for anyone who might not be on the mailing list. Once you've filled out your pledge card you can hang onto it for our All Saints' Day service, where we'll have a special ingathering! Our Patronal Feast Plans!
The aforementioned All Saints' Day festivities are now fast approaching, so here's what you can look forward to for our patronal feast. We will have both our 8 and 10 am Sunday services. The 8 AM service will be our standard early service. At 10 AM we'll feature our full All Saints splendor, with an expanded choir, incense, etc. During both services we will bring back the ingathering from last year, where pledge cards are received and blessed. Finally, there will be an evensong performance at 5 PM (further details to follow). Look forward to all the fun! Book Club's Next Meeting set for October 29th: The Bridge of San Luis Rey
The Intermittent Book Club has selected October 29th as its next meeting date. All interested are invited to read The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder. In this novel, set in colonial Peru, a collapsing bridge brings 5 to their deaths. A Franciscan friar watching the disaster attempts to discern between free will and providence as he looks for the connection between them, with a result both surprising and affirming of God's role in our lives. As always, all members of the congregation are invited to read and attend!
