Welcome

 

All Saints' is a warm and welcoming congregation.  We are open-minded, curious, fun-loving, devoted, relational. Members of our church reach out within the parish and our communities in a variety of ways. We know that God is not finished with us yet and we seek, through prayer and study, to find the ways to best serve God in one another and the world around us. We offer radical hospitality to the stranger, and infinite respect for all, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Heading 1

Update During This Challenging Time of COVID-19

Facts not fear. Clean Hands. Open Hearts.

All Saints' Beloved.

 

Yesterday the Bishop sent a letter to all clergy and churches asking us to cease services after tomorrow at least until Palm Sunday, April 5, after consulting with Public Health professionals, other dioceses, and leadership in our diocese because of Coronavirus/COVID-19.
His letter can be found by clicking here

This is sad and a little scary, but, as the Bishop said, we do this in solidarity with many others to care for the most vulnerable, and to unite in good citizenship. We will be suspending the Wednesday evening soup supper and prayer, the Lenten Concerts on Thursdays, and the book study group scheduled for this Sunday afternoon. The Vestry and I will be thinking about how we stay engaged with one another--and email is certainly great to have, along with telephone communication. If you have ideas, please let us know. We already have our daily Lenten Devotional email going, and paper copies for those who don't have email, so we're ahead of the curve in that regard! The Vestry and leadership of Dinner Bell and the Food Cupboard are in conversations about how we might keep those going safely.

 

So, we wander into a bit of a spiritual desert with Jesus for the last of the 40 days of Lent---probably the most appropriate season for this to be happening! This can be a rich time of retreat for prayer, reading, and reflection.
 

Remember all the good public health measures we are hearing from everywhere: wash your hands, physical distance, stay home if sick. If you need help staying at home regarding groceries/essentials, please reach out. And stay aware of vulnerable friends and neighbors and how they are doing--this can be a time of rich and creative ministry!

 

Come to church tomorrow if it feels right for you--our last shot for awhile--at least in that format! As we did last week, we won't be shaking hands at the Peace, and the Bishop, earlier this week, sent out a directive about only distributing the Host (bread) for Communion. 

 

May the peace of God, which passes all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and of his son, Jesus Christ our Lord, and the blessing of God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, be with you always.
