Is Searching for a new Rector
Are you looking for a Parish and want to know more about All Saints'
Attached is our Parish Profile.
Update from the Search Subcommittee of the Vestry
Our search for a new rector continues with strong support from The Reverend Laura Sheridan-Campbell, transition officer for the Diocese of San Diego. In the current phase of our search we received ten applications, and the search subcommittee of the Vestry is currently checking references for four of the priests who submitted complete files and responded to written questions. Although the search process tends to take longer than we would like, we hope to complete video interviews with some of the candidates before the end of July. In addition to specific prayers for guidance for the search team and the Vestry, we urge parishioners to pray specifically for the unity of the Church (page 204 and page 818 in theBook of Common Prayer).
When the Vestry is ready to select finalists, Father Rob will lead the entire parish in a special time of prayer.
Sunday 10:30am Choir is on Break for July and August
For the months of July and August, our wonderful Choir is on a well deserved break.
We get to set with them in the pews and sing side by side.
Bob our Organist will finish out the month of July, with our four soloist and then take a break himself.
Thank you to all who make sung worship so powerful and inspiring at All Saints'.
Social Action Committee Project for Scripps Mercy Hospital
Another successful delivery of clothing to Scripps Mercy Hospital is in the books. Thanks to your generosity, All Saints’ this past Monday was able to donate over 300 t-shirts, 150 pairs of shorts and 100 pairs of socks to the hospital for distribution to homeless individuals as they leave the ER.
Thank you for your participation in this ministry! If you would like to become involved, please talk with any of our SAC members.

MEMORIAL GARDEN NEWS
The All Saints’ Memorial Garden continues to thrive and grow and last week the Altar flowers were solely from our garden. When it was created, the garden’s original intent was to serve as a source for the Altar flowers thus eliminating the need for purchase and easing budget constraints. This idea was conceived three years ago and our garden has become a place of meditation and refuge, a final resting place for some of our parishioners and a place of beauty for all to behold. It is a far cry today from its appearance three years ago as a weed filled and ignored space.
Our garden continues to flourish due to the efforts of many; be it from contributions, maintenance or design ideas. I wish to focus on the efforts of Cree Craig in this update as he provided AND installed a drip system for the garden which not only will save water but also ensure our garden will remain viable without constant attention to irrigation. Many thanks to Cree and Joanie for their generous contribution!
Our next project will be a redesign of the white brick wall and the gate entry to further beautify our lovely garden. Keep watching for this improvement in the near future! Remember the garden is available for visiting at your convenience with a key from the Parish Office or from the lockbox on the church side entry gate in the alley.
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.
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.

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:
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.
