The Calling of a New Rector
We are pleased to announce that the Vestry of All Saints' has called the Rev. Carlos Eduardo Expósito Irarragorri as our new rector. Father Carlos will start November 25th.
The Reverend Carlos Eduardo Expósito Irarragorri
Father Expósito was born in Camagüey, Cuba, on October 29, 1954. He began attending the Episcopal Church at age 13, and deep in his heart has remained an Episcopalian ever since.
After earning a bachelor's in English Language with a minor in Linguistics, he taught English as a foreign language in colleges and language schools for more than 21 years, achieving the rank of associate professor.
In his secular work, he tried to instill Christian principles and values in his students and to promote Christian ethical behavior among colleagues, even when it was forbidden to use Christian terminology by the official atheist government.
In the early 1990s, Father Carlos became actively involved in his local church. He soon met his wife who also taught English. After they married, they were both greatly involved in different lay ministries of their church and took part in diocesan meetings and committees. Then they discerned a call to devote their lives to ordained ministry. They earned degrees in Sacred Theology in 2004.
While a seminarian Father Carlos trained in hospital chaplaincy with the Episcopal Church of Puerto Rico for a month. He ministered in different churches as a seminarian until he was ordained deacon in 2007 and priest in 2008.
In 2010, Father Carlos graduated as a contemplative groups and retreat leader from Shalem Insitute for Spiritual Formation based in Washington DC.
He has served as a priest-in-charge and rector of different Episcopal churches in Cuba. He was also part of diocesan committees there, including the examiners’ board for candidates discerning for ordination. He also taught English and theology courses at the Evangelical Seminary in Matanzas.
In April 2017 Father Carlos came to Carlsbad as a legal permanent resident to join his wife, the Rev. Cristina Borges, who serves as the priest-in-charge of St. Matthew's, National City. After being licensed, he served several churches in our diocese as a supply priest. In September, 2017 Fr. Carlos became canonically resident in the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego. He started shortly thereafter as Latino missioner for St Paul’s Cathedral. He held this position until June 2019. He also served as co-chaplain for the bishop nominating committee during the recent episcopal transition.
Father Carlos feels tremendous joy and is honored to be called to lead All Saints', which he considers a special congregation with our wonderful Anglo-Catholic tradition. Father Carlos hopes to support all members of our parish in developing our spiritual gifts and living out the Christian faith in the context where Jesus is calling us to be His faithful witnesses.
Welcome to All Saints', Father Carlos!

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!

'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.
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.

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.
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.
