San Diego Music Coterie
Sunday, October 2 at 3PM
All Saints’ Parish Hall
The Greater San Diego Music Coterie presents its opening concert for the 12th Season at All Saints Episcopal Church with selections from Bizet’s L’Arlésienne and Dvorák’s Symphony No. 8 in G major, Op. 88, featuring the Greater San Diego Chamber Orchestra and soprano Emily Ortlieb, a member of All Saints’ Choir.
S Emily began her musical training as a pianist at the age of 5 in her home of Algonquin, Illinois. Under the supervision of her beloved late teacher, Mr. Robert Hart, Emily began working in local churches at age 12 as a pianist, organist, and eventually soprano soloist. She received her Bachelor's degree in Voice Performance from the University of Illinois School of Music, and spent nearly 3 years in Austria with the Fulbright Program. As an operatic soprano, Emily has made a name for herself as a soloist at the world premiere of Spanish composer Pablo Croissier's choral works, and has sung the roles of Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier), Ophelie (Hamlet), and Euridyce (Orpheus in der Unterwelt).
Additionally, Ms. Ortlieb holds a law degree from the University of Minnesota and currently works as a legal associate for the UN Refugee Agency. She is a passionate advocate for refugees, stateless persons, and neighbors experiencing homelessness.
Emily is overjoyed to share her musical talents with the San Diego Coterie and the community of San Diego. She firmly believes in the power of music as a uniter of human beings and communities the world over.
All performers have been fully vaccinated, including the booster.
Admission is free with free-will donation at the door. Masks are recommended, but not required

Social Action Committee News
We have officially ended fall and entered winter on 12/21 at 1:47pm. I am very positive that anyone reading this is aware of just how cold it has gotten in the last couple of weeks! Advent seems to have ushered winter in a bit early for us. San Diego has been blessed with some good rain that has had a chance to soak into the ground. Sadly, this winter cold and the rain also soak into our homeless neighbors and friends. Imagine not having a roof over your head in this weather. Please remember our less fortunate friends with your generosity toward the food wagon and/or the ER clothing.
Please continue to fill the wagon with non-perishable food for the Salvation Army Food Bank - a worthy cause . . . and also remember that Scripps Mercy ER continues to see homeless men and women arrive wearing clothing desperately needing to be replaced. Our offerings of sweat pants and sweat shirts (large sizes), t-shirts and sox continue to be most welcome.
Your continued generosity is greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!!
All Saints' Social Action Committee!

Suggested Reading From
Dane Neufeld: The Bears Return, the Wonder of the Wild
“Even brief glimpses of these amazing creatures have filled me with fear, wonder, and gratitude, for like all of God’s creation, in its myriad ways, a bear’s simple existence speaks of something powerful and profound far beyond our little lives. It speaks of the Creator.”
Robert Hendrickson: The Trinity, Orthodoxy, and Our Common Story
“We have the word of Jesus to rely upon. We have his word that he and the Father are one as we should be one. We have his word that the Holy Spirit will come among us. We have his word that we now have the glorious gift of calling God Our Father, for we are heirs of the kingdom.”

ALL SAINTS' PRAYER CHAIN
All Saints' Prayer Chain
We welcome you to join our prayer chain so you can pray for the requests that we receive.
Prayer is used in a multitude of ways to seek comfort, make a request, ask for guidance, heal and restore, express sorrow, celebrate joy or give thanks. 'The Prayers of the People' that is provided weekly in the back our bulletin is an updated list of everything and everyone on our prayer list and is an excellent resource to be used in our daily prayers. However, between these bulletins, situations arise that people need immediate prayers started. More information will be provided in future enews.
If you are interested in being included in the prayer chain or if you have additional questions or comments, please contact Pamela Gray throught the Parish.
Todd Muffatti, member of our Vestry, has just published a book titled “Creative Successful Set Designs.” Filled with dozens of photos, illustrations and technical diagrams, the book guides theater teachers through the preparation and design steps necessary to build an appropriate and effective stage set. Using his 40-year career as a professional set designer and university professor Todd shares tips from his creative process and offers practical ideas about how to approach and accomplish imaginative set designs for High School, Jr. College, and little Theater Groups .
His book is available from www.atlantic-pub.com. and in the Parish Office for your perusal.

Sunday Morning Childcare
We are excited to announce that our nursery is now being staffed through Panda's Domestic Referral Agency, which provides childcare for many churches in San Diego. All sitters are childcare professionals that have undergone a national background check and are Infant and Child CPR Certified.
Want to be an Acolyte?
We have a pressing need for additional Acolytes in order to continue our worship in the manner to which we have all grown accustom. This is particularly true for the 10:30 Mass. If you are seeking an opportunity to serve and think that you might be interested in serving at the Altar, come by the Acolyte room before or after the service to learn what we do.
