Christian Formation - Resuming Sunday, September 12
Have you ever wondered how the Book of Common Prayer originated? Who were the historical figures instrumental through the ages from the 16th century to the present day in formulating this Book? Well Gary Nicilosi, Episcopal Priest and Lawyer, has written “A Concise History of the Book of Common Prayer—An Appreciation of Anglicanism” to answer those questions and many more.
Gary Nicolosi is the author of hundreds of articles on Anglicanism, parish ministry and spirituality, including his book “SoulFire: Preaching the Church Message in a Secular, Postmodern World”.
As a former member of St. Bart’s, Poway during his rectorship, I can attest to his fine writing and the depth of his scholarship.
Please join Fr. Carlos as he leads us through Concise History—each lesson/chapter includes questions to guide group discussion and to provoke serious personal reflection. Christian Formation resumes Sunday, September 12 at 11:30am in the Parish Hall.
Copies of this book are available for $14.00 in the Parish Office during the week and on Sundays.

Upcoming Sunday Concert
Free Concert to the public with free-will donation at the door.
Join the Greater San Diego Chamber Orchestra for a musical journey. Experience Scotland with the Four Scottish Dances by Malcolm Arnold, Italy with the Italian Symphony by Felix Mendelssohn, Poland with the Polonaise by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, and the Steppes of Central Asia by Alexander Borodin. Also in the program are scrumptious French songs by Renaldo Hahn and Camille Saint-Saens.
The concert is directed by Dr. Angela Yeung and features mezzo-soprano Mary Boles Allen.
Mezzo-soprano Mary Boles-Allen is a core chorister at San Diego Opera, the alto soloist at La Jolla Presbyterian Church, and just completed her sixth year as the alto for High Holy Days at Temple Solel, Encinitas. Previously she sang with Musica Vitale, Lyric Opera San Diego, and the San Diego Master Chorale. With the San Diego Symphony, she sang alto solos in performances of Mendelssohn's Elijah (2nd Seraphim) and Mendelssohn Midsummer Night’s Dream (2nd Fairy). Other appearances have included second soprano, mezzo, and alto solos in choral masterworks from Bach to Honegger. Her operatic work in local concerts has featured art songs and arias by 18th to 20th century composers.
IN MEMORIUM - Joseph Burgess
All Saints' is saddened to announce the death of Joseph Burgess who passed away the morning of August 9, 2021 at the age of 95 years.
Joe joined All Saints' with his wife Vilma in 2002. Among the many contributions Joe made to parish life was his participation with Vilma in the Flower Guild ministry. For many years he and Vilma would arrange the Sunday altar flowers into small vases to be placed in St. Mary's Chapel, the shrines or for parishioners to take to shut-ins.
Most Sunday mornings at the 10:30am Mass you would meet Joe as the Greeter at the entrance to the church. After Vilma passed away in 2017, Joe would attend Mass with his daughter, Judith.
A Requiem Mass will be scheduled at All Saints' in the coming weeks. Please keep Joe in your prayers. May he rest in peace.
Father of all, we pray to you for Joe, and for all those whom we love but see no longer. Grant to them eternal rest. Let light perpetual shine upon them. May their soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
IN MEMORIUM - Bruce Tindall
Bruce Tindall passed away on Saturday, July 17, 2021 at the age of 65. He was the husband of Sarah Schneewind, a member of All Saints’ and of our choir.
A memorial service will be held at St. Paul’s Cathedral on Saturday, August 28 at 10am. Fr. Carlos will
participate in the memorial service.
At St. Paul’s Bruce served as lector and managed their Wednesday Evensong services for many years. In those capacities his skill as a programmer, editor and poet served him well.
Sarah would be pleased to have you join her at the memorial service for her husband, Bruce, on Saturday, August 28 at 10am.
All Saints' Back to School Supply Drive
Our thanks to our parishioners and the Members of the Social Action Committee (Tamela Dreyer, Barbara Wilder, Kay Phillips, Lynette Blakney and Todd Muffatti) for their help in reaching our goal of 25 back packs filled with school supplies. We will also be donating these and a few extra larger back packs for older kids to ECS’s Back to School Supply Drive.
Social Action Committee News
School has returned, but hunger hasn’t left!
Food insecurity continues for many. We can help lessen the impact by continuing to donate food to the Salvation Army Food Bank. Please consider adding an non-perishable item or two (or 3 or 4) to your grocery shopping cart, then bring to church & place in the black wagon just inside the church door on Sunday or bring to Parish Office. Your participation is greatly appreciated!

Tradition and a Tree
By Timothy P. O'Malley
Hundreds of initials carved into a campus tree have given me a new understanding of the material reality of tradition.
A Short Course
By Daniel Martins
Despite her decline from Alzheimer's, despite her disorientation in her own home, despite the need to arrange constant "coverage," my wife Brenda is still God's gift to me.

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.

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.
