Upcoming Events

St.Petersburg Men's Ensemble
June 18, Saturday at 7:00pm

St. Petersburg Men's Ensemble presents a concert of masterpieces of Russian choral music from baroque to classical on Saturday, June 18th at 7:00pm.
In the first part of their program the Ensemble will sing Russian spiritual music from the 17th century - Diletsky's hymn "Only Begotten Son" to the 20th century - Rachmaninoff's "Blessed Art Thou, O Lord". In the second half of the program the Ensemble will sing classical songs from 19th-20th century written by composers such as Glinka and Tchaikovsky.

This evening concert will be a great opportunity to become acquainted with Russian spiritual music as well as the diversity of Russian secular music sung by Kirill Sokolov, Sergey Shapinskiy, Andrei Volikov, and Vadim Smantser.

Visit YouTube to listen to some of their previous programs. A great enticement to hear them live at All Saints'. Immediately following the concert there will be a reception on the church patio to meet the singers.
Suggested donated $10.

Sundays at 9:30am between Masses
Christian Formation resumes on Sunday, June 12 at 9:30am in the Fireside Room. Father J.D. McQueen will lead a study of Ralph Martin's book "Fulfillment of All Desires."


Our blessing bag ministry to the homeless among us continues to grow with your generous help! We are creating another 100 bags on Trinity Sunday (May 22, 2016). We really need individually wrapped, travel-size hygiene items including chapstick, sunscreen, big safety pins, toothbrushes, combs, and deodorant. We have plenty of food products (any excess cannot be held for the next round due to expiration dates on food).
We will be assembling the bags next Sunday between services. If you can stay after the 8am Mass or come very early (9am) for 10:30am Mass, your help will be much appreciated.
Monetary donations are also very welcome so our committee can fill in places on the list where there is a need (there is a donation box and envelopes on the back table). Please look for our shopping list either in your bulletin or on the back and side tables.

Thank you for being so supportive . . Your Social Action Committee

We, at All Saints' Parish, have a long time tradition in our prayer chain. We feel that as we pray together and pass on our thoughts and prayers to God we deepen our relationship , not only with God, but with ourselves as his servants and parishioners. Please join us in keeping this time honored tradition continuing to help others see God and seek his help and blessings as we do. Call Lynette Blakney (call the office for her number.)

Prayer: The world's greatest wireless connection.

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.

Dryscape Garden

Many thanks to Todd Muffati and Homero for spending the time and energy, in all of the recent heat, to design and plant our drought tolerant garden on the alley ramp entrance. It looks wonderful and as time goes on, we will be adding more "design features"! Our thanks also to Bill and Sue Johnston for organizing and contributing to this dryscape garden project. If anyone has a few boulders they wish to donate, Sue Johnston would be happy to take them off your hands.
