Upcoming Events
in MAY

May 4, Wednesday
Bach Collegium San Diego returns to All Saints'

On Wednesday, May 4 at 12:15pm to present Bach’s cantata for soprano and chamber orchestra, Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut BWV 199 composed for the 11th Sunday after Trinity in 1714. Admission is free.

May 15, Sunday, at 2:00pm
Dr. Sophie Webber, Cellist

Traditional and Cutting Edge Cello: from Bach to Cohen to Electronics
A concert you do not want to miss. on Sunday, May 15 at 2:00pm. Those who heard her exquisite playing of two Bach Chorales for a prelude at our March 10th 10:30am Mass will attest to the beauty of her playing and her extraordinary musicianship.

"My intention for this program is to bring together two benchmark works of the solo cello repertoire (Bach's Suites for Solo Cello No.1 in G Major and No.5 in c minor) with examples of the cello in more contemporary and less traditional settings (namely, in various arrangements incorporating voice, cello, piano, and electronics; from well-known pop ballads such as Cohen's "Hallelujah" to a couple of original French songs that I wrote myself). I feel this broader-than-usual offering of musical "genres" is representative of my own musical taste, and I am excited to have the opportunity to put together such a program, and perform it at All Saints' Episcopal Church."

May 14, Saturday at 7:30pm
Bach Collegium San Diego

The Bach Collegium presents Monteverdi's Vespers on Saturday, May 14 at 7:30pm under the direction of Ruben Valenzuela, Music Director. Written just over four hundred years ago, Claudio Monteverdi's Vespers was included in an imposing volume of Italian church music in honor of the Virgin Mary. If you love music and support the goings-on at All Saints' consider being a greeter for this concert. Sue and Bill Johnston did just that for the Bach Collegium concert in March. It is an opportunity to meet and greet many who are new to All Saints' and to reach out to the community. Read about their experience in the current newsletter and decide to be a greeter and get a free ticket to the concert, too.

Starting Monday, May 2
The All Saints' Preschool is alive with energy and happy children. As of the end of March, there were 78 students enrolled in the Preschool.

The Parish is collecting money to buy breakfast and a small gift (See's Candy) for each staff member of the Preschool to kick off Teacher Appreciation Week celebrations on Monday, May 2. Members of the Church who want to contribute to this should give money to Lu Locke, Rick Ochocki, or the Parish office by Wednesday, April 27.

Sundays at 9:30am between Masses
Christian Formation continues this Sunday, 9:30am in the Fireside Room. Father McQueen's topic is "Foundations in Christian Belief".

Church Dirctories are here!!
To receive your copy see Teri Tremper and Sue Johnston on the patio after the 8:00am Mass or Louise Lawson after the 10:30am Mass.

Summer Blessing Bags

Our blessing bag ministry to the homeless among us continues to grow with your generous help! We would like to have another 100 bags ready to pack and be available for you on Trinity Sunday (May 22, 2016). We need individually wrapped, travel-size hygiene items including Kleenex, toothpaste, toothbrushes and deodorant. Non-perishable food items needed include granola bars, crackers, peanuts/nuts, fruit snacks and water.
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.

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.

Special Offering on Second Sunday's loose plate
The loose plate collection on the Second Sunday of each month goes to the service of our community through the Parish Pastoral Needs Fund. Your generous contributions help us to serve members of All Saints' in need and our less fortunate neighbors as Christ serves us. Thank you for your continued help with this vital ministry.

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.
