Many of the works are operatic, with several surprises in store, including an arrangement of Rodrigo's "Adagio" from his famous Concierto de Aranjuez for choir and guitar ensemble, featuring guitar soloist, Fred Benedetti (music director of the Grossmont Guitar Ensemble).

Come with friends to enjoy this afternoon concert of music for chorus and guitar ensemble.


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.)

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.

Add Blessing Bags
We have new blessing bags for distribution. They are on the back table in the sanctuary or available in the church office. These are a bit smaller, but full of goodies and a card telling about our church service; the weekly AA meetings held at All Saints’ and a list of resources for help. Please take a couple for those times when you are in your car and see someone in need.

Prayers of the People Audit
Please note that over the next month we will be auditing the parish prayer list to make sure that it is current. If you have added someone to the list, please fill out a new card for them so that they will not be left off the new list to be used starting on Sunday, October 18th. Be sure to include your contact information so that we can get updates as necessary. New, blue cards are available on the tables in the front and rear of the church and in the parish hall.

Sundays at 9:25am between Masses

Christian Formation continues with a Bible study on the Gospel of Mark, the primary source for the gospel readings this year of our lectionary cycle. In this series we'll look at the hidden themes St. Mark weaves together to paint a vivid, dynamic picture of Jesus, focusing on his miracles and divine Sonship. Please join us in the Fireside Room from 9:25 - 10:15am as we make special preparation for our journey through Ordinary Time.

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.

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.
