Message from Fr. Carlos
Dear All Saints’ parishioners,
As part of our Christian formation for adults this coming Lenten Season, we are inviting you to join us in the study of the book Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul by John Philip Newell.
In this book, Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul: Celtic Wisdom for Reawakening to What Our Souls Know and Healing the World, John Phillip Newell shares the long, hidden tradition of Celtic Christianity, explaining how this earth-based spirituality can help us rediscover the natural rhythms of life and deepen our spiritual connection with God, with each other, and with the earth. He introduces some of Celtic Christianity’s leading practitioners, both saints and pioneers of faith, whose timeless wisdom is more necessary than ever.
Newell is an internationally acclaimed spiritual teacher, speaker, and author of several books, including Listening for the Heartbeat of God, and A New Harmony. The former Warden of Iona Abbey in the Western Isles of Scotland, he is the founder of Earth and Soul (a Celtic Initiative of Study, Spiritual Practice, and Compassionate Action) and teaches regularly in the United States.
Bishop Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, and author of Love is the Way, says, "This wonderful book draws deeply from the well of Celtic wisdom across the centuries to help us to recognize the sacred both around us and in us, calling us to wake up and see that there’s no going back to small, limited notions of God and the sacred."
We will be meeting in the rector’s office every second and fourth Sunday of the month, after the mass.
The books will be available for purchase at the church. Further information as to what chapters to read in advance for each session will be given in our weekly bulletins and newsletters.
A Requiem Mass for Rose Marie True, who passed away on Sunday, November 8, 2020 will be celebrated on Saturday, March 19 at 11am.
Rose Marie, her husband and five children were active members of All Saints’ for over 40 years. All her children either taught Sunday School, sang in the choir or were Acolytes. Rose Marie was an active member and head of the Altar Guild with her daughter, Katherine, for many years.
Please join us as we celebrate the life of a faithful member of All Saints’ and welcome her family as they return to All Saints’ for this time of remembrance.
Following the mass a luncheon will be served in the Parish Hall. All are invited.

Social Action Committee News
Thank you again for all your generosity. As a committee we have decided to disburse the funds as follows:
Grand Circle Foundation - $500 (https://grandcirclefoundation.org/)
This group does many things including trips around the world exploring other cultures and people. They support education, clean water, leadership training, conservation efforts and the preservation of cultural treasures and traditions both in the United States and internationally.
Scripps/Mercy Hospital ER - $250
Over the last several years we have been helping them with clothing for the homeless patients who come in. This time they are requesting slider sandals (like flip-flops but no toe divider). This will allow one to wear socks with the sandals - many of their homeless patients have serious foot problems.
HECR (Helping Empower Community Refugees) - $250 (https://hecr.org/)
HECR is a neighborhood group dedicated to supporting refugee resettlement in San Diego. They started in El Cajon helping Syrian refugees and have expanded their work to include others such as Ukrainians and Afghanis. They partner with other resettlement agencies such as Second Families San Diego.
SAC - the remainder of the funds (approximately $250)
We will retain this portion for future use as the need arises. We want to be prepared for unexpected needs over the year. This could be any number of causes. We will keep you all posted.
Again - thank you so much - you are making a difference in our world!

Suggested Reading From
Dane Neufeld: The Bears Return, the Wonder of the Wild
“Even brief glimpses of these amazing creatures have filled me with fear, wonder, and gratitude, for like all of God’s creation, in its myriad ways, a bear’s simple existence speaks of something powerful and profound far beyond our little lives. It speaks of the Creator.”
Robert Hendrickson: The Trinity, Orthodoxy, and Our Common Story
“We have the word of Jesus to rely upon. We have his word that he and the Father are one as we should be one. We have his word that the Holy Spirit will come among us. We have his word that we now have the glorious gift of calling God Our Father, for we are heirs of the kingdom.”

ALL SAINTS' PRAYER CHAIN
All Saints' Prayer Chain
We welcome you to join our prayer chain so you can pray for the requests that we receive.
Prayer is used in a multitude of ways to seek comfort, make a request, ask for guidance, heal and restore, express sorrow, celebrate joy or give thanks. '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.
