Your prayers for Homero
Please continue your prayers for Homero’s return to good health. He remains in the hospital. The latest update from his brother, Arturo, is that Homero was able to breathe on his own for two hours. Hopefully this improvement will continue.
Social Action Committee News
We are continuing with the food drive to assist families in need in San Diego. This is especially important at this time of pandemic fallout.
Winter Food Drive
Please contribute what you can when you can. Whether you are donating a case of soup, or a can of soup, your participation in this ministry is valued and appreciated by our Salvation Army partners and the numerous people they serve in the neighboring community.
We will gladly accept your donation at Mass in the courtyard on Tuesday or at the Parish Office. Please call ahead to ensure that the office is open. The Salvation Army will collect our donations on a monthly basis and SAC members will purchase canned goods/food items with your generous monetary donations.

'A Time of Trial: What Then Shall We Do?'
By Philip Turner
The pandemic has brought to the full light of day the fact the society that forms both our children and us is no longer shaped as once it was by Christian belief and practice. Further, our ability to gather for worship has been severely limited, and digital communication will not fill this void.
Note: All Saints' Church is an Associate of 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' New Ministry
Fr. Carlos received a letter this week from Fr. William D. Razz notifying All Saints’ that our church is now an official member of the Veteran/Military Friendly Congregation Community. Click here to view a copy of Fr. Razz's letter to Fr. Carlos. The certificate we received will be displayed in a prominent place to be determined.
Fr. Carlos and Barbara Wilder are heading up this ministry.

The Altar Guild Needs YOU!
The Altar Guild is in urgent need for two volunteers. We need one volunteer to help set up for Sunday Mass one Saturday per month on either a Friday or Saturday morning. It takes about 2 hours and one of the members will train you and be with you until you are comfortable doing it alone. We also need a volunteer to help clean up/set up after 8:00 AM Mass (approx. 30 minutes)
Please contact Maureen Gardiner-Moore or Norma Dreyer .
Choir Appreciation Event — September 14
The All Saints’ family came together on Saturday, September 14th, to celebrate the return of the choir after the summer lull. The event was warmly hosted by Senior Warden, Dr. Ed Heck and his wife Judy, and attended by about 40 people, to include several non-parishioner friends. Dr. Heck provided a generous selection of wines and cheeses for the wine tasting, and Joan Evangelou provided a fabulous spread of Greek finger food. The wine themed baskets, with their colorful names, Picnic in the Park, Pink Flamingo, Bub-bly for Bruch, Apple n Spice (non-alcoholic) were a great success. Together with the wine tasting, cork pull, and wines by the glass, the event brought $2750 in support of the choir! Special thanks to Ed and Judy for opening their home, to John Gray III, who sat at the front door collecting donations, to Kathryn Bunch for donation of books, to Glendora Tremper who organized the cork pull and ran the silent auction, and to all the basket-builders, bidders, and wine (and non-wine) tasters who came together to make this a fun and successful event!

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.
