2-25-2024-The Second Sunday in Lent ~ SOLEMN MASS BULLETIN YR-B.pdf
Christian Formation - 2nd and 4th Sundays,after Mass at 11:30am
The study groups continues to meet on the second and fourth Sundays of each month. The two books being
discussed are: "A Most Peculiar Book" (Group I meets in the library), and
"Strength in Adversity" (Group II meets in the rector's office), at noon.
Please join us.
Commentaries on these books:
“a most peculiar book—an inherent strangeness of the Bible” is a stimulating and challenging book, which questions all simplistic ‘Bible believing’ theories about the authority of Scripture by showing how complex and contradictory it often is. Kristine Swenson tackles the problem head on while still making good her claim to love the Bible.”— John Barton, author of “A History of the Bible: The Story of the World’s Most Influential Book”
“Strength in Adversity” is a pastoral commentary on the book of Job by Rev. Dr. Gary Nicolosi, rector of St. Alban’s in Wickenberg, AZ and published author. It is a road map for making life’s toughest journeys in the power of God’s love. Unsparingly honest, this study points the way to comfort, hope, and yes, strength.
A Requiem Mass for Rose Marie True, who passed away on Sunday, November 8, 2020 will be celebrated on Saturday, March 19 at 11am.
Rose Marie, her husband and five children were active members of All Saints’ for over 40 years. All her children either taught Sunday School, sang in the choir or were Acolytes. Rose Marie was an active member and head of the Altar Guild with her daughter, Katherine, for many years.
Please join us as we celebrate the life of a faithful member of All Saints’ and welcome her family as they return to All Saints’ for this time of remembrance.
Following the mass a luncheon will be served in the Parish Hall. All are invited.

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!!!

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.”

Enhance Your Christian Formation as Anglicans
From Fr. Carlos - Here is a link to a study material that can enhance your Christian formation as Anglicans. It may be used individually, in families or in small groups and divided up into sessions as appropriate. We encourage you all to study it to be better prepared to be faithful witnesses of our Lord within the Anglican tradition.

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.
