EASTER LILIES

We are offering an opportunity for parishioners to sponsor memorial Easter lilies, which will decorate the High Altar and Sanctuary for Easter. Each person memorialized will be noted in the Easter bulletin.

The cost of each sponsorship will be $25. Flower forms will become available on Sunday March 26. The deadline for ordering will be Tuesday, April 11.



EVENING PRAYER

How and when, or with whom one prays, is a very personal thing. Teri Tremper is leading a group of parishioners every Thursday (through Lent) for evening prayer.at 6:30pm in St. Mary’s Chapel. Their special intention is asking for God’s help in navigating the future of All Saints'.

All are welcome. Please join us.

IN MEMORIUM

The Rev. Douglas E. Woodridge passed away on Saturday, March 11. Father Woodridge came to All Saints’ in 1968 as Assistant Priest and Youth Director. He served in that capacity until 1979 when he became Rector of St. Michael’s-by-the-Sea in Carlsbad until his retirement in 1996. In early 2002, Bishop Hughes appointed Father Woodridge as interim rector of All Saints’. He served in that capacity until Thanksgiving 2002 which was after Father McClaskey had resigned and before Father Tony was appointed rector.

Remembrances may be made to: The OHSU Kidney Foundation, 1121 SW Salmon St, Suite 100, Portland, OR 97205

He leaves his wife of 62 years, Clara, a daughter, Susan Salgado and her husband Ron of Tualatin, and three grandchildren, Matthew, Michael, and Lauren. Services will be held at St. Francis Episcopal Church in Wilsonville, OR on March 22nd at noon and interned in the Memorial Garden.

Parish life

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. If you do, please email your photos to Louise Lawson at:

ALL SAINTS' PRAYER CHAIN

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.


CORNER MONUMENT PLAQUE


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.

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.
