During next week, 26 students will take organ lessons from many fine teachers, attend workshops and lectures, and see award winning concert organists perform on San Diego’s finest organs. All Saints’ is pleased to be one of the San Diego churches making our organ available for student lessons with their teachers.

The list of artists and the concert’s locations is on the back and front tables in the church and on the bulletin board in the Parish Hall.

Diocese Standing Committee News

We are excited to announce the selection of the Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori as our assisting bishop. Bishop Jefferts Schori will begin her tenure with us on August 13. She will serve three-quarters time performing episcopal functions such as visitations, confirmations, ordinations, and receptions. She will share with the standing committee the task of providing leadership and vision for the diocese and shall generally perform the functions of a diocesan bishop as delegated to her by the standing committee in its capacity as the ecclesiastical authority during the transition. She will work closely with the executive council as well.

Successful Art and Music Event

A wonderful time was had by parishioners, friends of All Saints’ and neighbors at our Art & Music event last Sunday. Artists Todd Muffatti, Kathryn Dreyer, Troy and Teresa Lindemeier displayed and sold their artist creations under the courtyard trellis while BJ Robinson and friends filled the air with music from musical theater, jazz and opera.

Our thanks to the artists and musicians for giving their time and talent to this Sunday event. Picture by John Gray III. More pictures in the coming issue of our June/July newsletter.

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.


On your next visit to All Saints’ take a walk to the corner of Pennsylvania and 6th Avenues. There you will find that the church’s cornerstone and the letters on the cornerstone have been repainted; and that All Saints’ seal has been recreated in bronze. In the words of one of All Saints’ parishioners— ”classy”. In the December/January newsletter issue an article will describe the various elements of the seal.

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.
