Fall Stewardship Campaign
During December we were gratified to receive three one-time gifts (ranging from $100 to $10,000) from individuals who appreciate our weekly emails or want to contribute toward funding of our most pressing needs. We give thanks for the unforeseen generosity of these friends of the parish. Yet, it is also important to remember that it is the regular week-by-week giving for the sake of the Kingdom of God here at All Saints’ that is vital to funding our ministry and facility needs. As of January 8, we have received 42 pledges for 2019 for a total of $89,940. We believe that these pledges provide a good start on our ongoing plans to develop and carry out a year-round stewardship program embracing time, talents, and treasure. Of course, it’s never too late to make a pledge to support All Saints’ in the coming year. Pledge forms for 2019 will be available in the church every Sunday, and you may place your completed pledge card in the offering plates at any service or send it to the church office.

“All in Prayer, and A Place for Everyone and Everyone in Their Place”

St. Paul provides an outline and even the details of how each member of the Body of Christ has a place, and that everyone in the Body of Christ should be IN their place for the Church to grow and be effective in ministry. On Sunday evenings we will look deeply into 1 Corinthians and a portion of Ephesians; we will have as our goal a preliminary understanding of our own ministries as provided by God, and some revelation of where these spiritual gifts are meant to be used.

Tuesdays After Noon Mass - Beginning March 12th

“Why Luke in Lent”

On Tuesdays after the weekly Noon Mass, Fr. Eaton will lead a study on the Gospel lessons which will be read during Lent this year, all from the Gospel of Luke. The class will begin with a general overview of Luke, but with those Gospel readings in mind, and then each week through Holy Week, will look specifically at each of the Luke readings to find why these were chosen for our Lenten hearing.

Please consider bringing soup or bread or dessert to our Sunday Soup Suppers during Lent. A sign-up sheet will be available during both coffee hours starting Sunday, February 24.



Social Action Committee Project

We will continue to partner with Scripps Mercy Hospital on 5th Ave. to provide clothing items for impoverished and homeless individuals who are seen in the Emergency Room. Fall and winter items along with t-shirts and socks are needed on an ongoing basis. Many times, the clothes that folks were wearing when they arrived at the ER are not suitable to be worn at discharge.

Your participation in this ministry is invaluable. Not sure where to purchase your sweats and clothing items? Walmart, Target, Costco and Amazon have reasonably priced clothing in stock. Monetary donations are always welcome. (There are envelopes on the back table)

Our NEW Donation Drive runs through March 2019. The SAC will schedule a time to drop-off our items in early April.

In Service,
All Saints Social Action Committee

MEMORIAL GARDEN NEWS

As you can see from the photo on the next page, our smiling Victor and the bountiful rains are keeping our garden blooming and thriving! We are entering a new phase for the garden; that of making a wish list of plants and projects we wish to complete. Also, please do not plant any new plants in the garden as there is a method to our madness for what we wish to have growing there. We want plants that can be used for the altar and plants that are drought tolerant. We do not wish plants that are potentially hazardous to children or adults. (Some one planted four fire stick plants in the garden and they are quite toxic. They have been removed.)

Our wish list thus far is as follows (if questions, contact Sue Johnston):

· 5 gallon plants (Armstrong guarantees plants for life!)
· Ideas for painting or decorating white brick wall
· An arch with climbing rose or mandevilla at entry gate
· A curved wooden teak bench for alcove behind olive tree
· A fern garden where wicker furniture is placed (in planter)
· Combination locks for all gates leading into breezeway allowing better garden access for all


Book Published
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.

Special Gift For All Saints'
The “Apostolic Succession” painting (western icon style) is given to All Saints’ by Kathryn Dreyer, and has been a collaborated effort with Fr. Eaton. It will be blessed today during the second Mass, and hang above the Bishop’s chair in the sanctuary. The imagery is built upon Ephesians 3:7-10. To interpret Fr. Eaton’s wishes, he wanted Jesus sitting as on a grape vine with its branches symbolizing the blessing of the Apostles and its roots resting on the head and shoulders of the Bishop. This painting has been an honor to paint and a labor of love with considerable research and dedicated disciplines. “Apostolic Succession“ is painted on Baltic birch wood with actual gold leaf, acrylic paints and salt. It has been a prayerful experience.

Spphie Webber
Six Bach Suites for Solo Cello
Update

Here are the latest updates from Sophie Webber, cellist, who has performed at All Saints' in concert and played her cello during a Sunday Mass

She was thrilled to recently learn that ESCAPE: BACH'S SIX SUITES FOR SOLO CELLO was given a lovely and very flattering review in Gramophone magazine (June 2018 issue)! Here's an online version here: https://www.gramophone.co.uk/review/js-bach-solo-cello-suites-webber-skoraczewski

Another very nice write up came from Jon Jacob in a review on his classical music blog, Thoroughly Good https://www.thoroughlygood.me/2018/03/30/review-sophie-webber-plays-bach-cello-suites-on-escape/ More press reviews can be found on my EPK page under PRESS (https://www.sophiewebber.com/epk-1)

ESCAPE: BACH'S SIX SUITES FOR SOLO CELLO is also being aired on radio stations across the USA (including Southern California's Classical KUSC 91.5FM, Seattle's King FM 98.1, Iowa Public Radio, Tampa Bay (Florida)'s WUSF Public Media, Rochester (New York)'s WXXI Classical 91.5, North Carolina's WCPE The Classical Station 89.7 FM, Portland's All Classical 89.9 KQAC FM)

Other projects Sophie is currently working on include a recording of Bach Suite No.1 in G Major BWV1007 with chamber choir (singing an arrangement I wrote --minimal, highlighting harmonies and the interplay of consonance and dissonance). Martin Green, the Choral Director at St. Paul's Cathedral in San Diego (where I recorded Escape) has generously agreed to pioneer this project with me, and we will be meeting with the singers (handpicked from Martin's wonderful choirs at St. Paul's) in the next couple of weeks for an initial recording session of the Prelude from Suite No.1.

She is also working with a video artist to create another music video, this one featuring the Allemande from Suite No.6.

Sophie appreciates your interest and ongoing support

Parish life

Do you enjoy using your phone to take pictures of where you are? We're looking for photos of our parish life at All Saints’: parishioners as they arrive for Mass, or after Mass as they congregate on the patio, or are in the Parish Hall enjoying fellowship during the coffee hour, or at all parish events such as upcoming All Saints’ Sunday. If you do, please email your photos to Louise Lawson at:



ALL SAINTS' PRAYER CHAIN

We, at All Saints’, have a long time tradition in our prayer chain. We feel that as we pray together and pass our thoughts and prayers to God that we deepen our relationship, not only to God, but ourselves as his servants.
Please consider joining the prayer chain ministry. Through prayer we can possibly make a difference in the lives of our Parish family and friends. Contact Edith Thrumston.

Prayer: The world's greatest wireless connection.


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.
