The All Saints’ Vestry is encouraging parishioners to focus on the traditional practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving during the forty days of Lent. Several Vestry members have completed the four-week Zoom class on these Lenten disciplines offered by Father Mark Michael through The Living Church on Wednesday afternoons. Both private and public prayer (perhaps through attending Tuesday Mass or Friday Stations of the Cross) are appropriate Lenten activities. Fasting is a traditional practice at All Saints’ and may include giving up a luxury that we enjoy during Lent (such as wine, chocolates, lunch on Wednesday, or meat on Friday) and setting aside the money saved for charitable purposes. Almsgiving may involve applying the money saved from the Lenten fast to an Easter offering or to contributions to charitable causes related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Links to the four Lenten Zoom classes led by Father Mark Michael are available below.

On Wednesday, February 24, members of Homero’s family, All Saints’ parishioners, teachers of All Saints’ Preschool, teachers at Community Transition Academy, and neighborhood friends of Homero gathered in All Saints’ courtyard to remember Homero. Below are two pictures of the several that Teri Tremper took late in the afternoon.
The family has set up a “gofundme“ account for remembering Homero. If you wish to contribute, click here

This week Fr. Carlos was notified that Barbara Rabun had passed away on Saturday, January 30 at the age of 97 by her son, Alan. She was a long time member of All Saints’. For many years she and her husband, Jack, prepared the meals for the monthly “Young at Heart” luncheon group for about 40-50 seniors. She served as a dedicated member of the Altar Guild until she retired from this ministry at age 90 and as a “Counter” until a few years ago.
Norma Dreyer reminisced that in her garden she has sweet violets growing under her orange tree that Barbara had given her many years ago. Norma mentioned to Barbara that she missed the sweet violets growing in her Connecticut garden when she was a young girl. That prompted Barbara to prepare a shoe box filled with earth and sweet violets from her own garden as a gift to Norma.
O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our
prayers on behalf of thy servant Barbara, and grant her an
entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of
thy saints; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth
and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now
and for ever. Amen.
Here are two articles From The Living Church.

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.
