Guest PriestSunday, July 14th

Fr. Eaton, our interim rector, continues his vacation until his return on Sunday, July 21. Our guest celebrant and preacher this Sunday morning is Father Sanders, who is no stranger to parishioners at All Saints’. Fr. Sanders has been involved in All Saints’ for many years as Interim Rector, headmaster and chaplain of All Saints’ Preschool, and as guest celebrant and preacher. Please welcome Fr. Sanders and his wife, Kathy at our Coffee Hour in the Parish Hall after Mass.
Fall Stewardship Campaign
During December we were gratified to receive three one-time gifts (ranging from $100 to $10,000) from individuals who appreciate our weekly emails or want to contribute toward funding of our most pressing needs. We give thanks for the unforeseen generosity of these friends of the parish. Yet, it is also important to remember that it is the regular week-by-week giving for the sake of the Kingdom of God here at All Saints’ that is vital to funding our ministry and facility needs. As of January 8, we have received 42 pledges for 2019 for a total of $89,940. We believe that these pledges provide a good start on our ongoing plans to develop and carry out a year-round stewardship program embracing time, talents, and treasure. Of course, it’s never too late to make a pledge to support All Saints’ in the coming year. Pledge forms for 2019 will be available in the church every Sunday, and you may place your completed pledge card in the offering plates at any service or send it to the church office.


All Saints' Church
Is Searching for a new Rector

Do you feel a calling to All Saints'?
Are you looking for a Parish and want to know more about All Saints'

Attached is our Parish Profile.


Update from the Search Subcommittee of the Vestry

Our search for a new rector continues with strong support from The Reverend Laura Sheridan-Campbell, transition officer for the Diocese of San Diego. In the current phase of our search we received ten applications, and the search subcommittee of the Vestry is currently checking references for four of the priests who submitted complete files and responded to written questions. Although the search process tends to take longer than we would like, we hope to complete video interviews with some of the candidates before the end of July. In addition to specific prayers for guidance for the search team and the Vestry, we urge parishioners to pray specifically for the unity of the Church (page 204 and page 818 in theBook of Common Prayer).

When the Vestry is ready to select finalists, Father Rob will lead the entire parish in a special time of prayer.


Sunday 10:30am Choir is on Break for July and August

For the months of July and August, our wonderful Choir is on a well deserved break.
We get to set with them in the pews and sing side by side.
Bob our Organist will finish out the month of July, with our four soloist and then take a break himself.

Thank you to all who make sung worship so powerful and inspiring at All Saints'.

Lent 2019

Stations of the Cross March 8th — April 12th

Wednesdays at noon
Fridays at 6:15pm

LENTEN PARISH STUDIES

Sunday evenings - Beginning March 10th
Evensong at 5:15pm
(Except on March 31st Solemn Evensong and Benediction at 5:15pm)
Soup Supper at 5:45pm
Lenten Study at 6:15pm

“All in Prayer, and A Place for Everyone and Everyone in Their Place”

St. Paul provides an outline and even the details of how each member of the Body of Christ has a place, and that everyone in the Body of Christ should be IN their place for the Church to grow and be effective in ministry. On Sunday evenings we will look deeply into 1 Corinthians and a portion of Ephesians; we will have as our goal a preliminary understanding of our own ministries as provided by God, and some revelation of where these spiritual gifts are meant to be used.

Tuesdays After Noon Mass - Beginning March 12th

“Why Luke in Lent”

On Tuesdays after the weekly Noon Mass, Fr. Eaton will lead a study on the Gospel lessons which will be read during Lent this year, all from the Gospel of Luke. The class will begin with a general overview of Luke, but with those Gospel readings in mind, and then each week through Holy Week, will look specifically at each of the Luke readings to find why these were chosen for our Lenten hearing.

Please consider bringing soup or bread or dessert to our Sunday Soup Suppers during Lent. A sign-up sheet will be available during both coffee hours starting Sunday, February 24.



Social Action Committee Project for Scripps Mercy Hospital

Another successful delivery of clothing to Scripps Mercy Hospital is in the books. Thanks to your generosity, All Saints’ this past Monday was able to donate over 300 t-shirts, 150 pairs of shorts and 100 pairs of socks to the hospital for distribution to homeless individuals as they leave the ER.

Thank you for your participation in this ministry! If you would like to become involved, please talk with any of our SAC members.

In Service,
All Saints Social Action Committee

MEMORIAL GARDEN NEWS

The All Saints’ Memorial Garden continues to thrive and grow and last week the Altar flowers were solely from our garden. When it was created, the garden’s original intent was to serve as a source for the Altar flowers thus eliminating the need for purchase and easing budget constraints. This idea was conceived three years ago and our garden has become a place of meditation and refuge, a final resting place for some of our parishioners and a place of beauty for all to behold. It is a far cry today from its appearance three years ago as a weed filled and ignored space.

Our garden continues to flourish due to the efforts of many; be it from contributions, maintenance or design ideas. I wish to focus on the efforts of Cree Craig in this update as he provided AND installed a drip system for the garden which not only will save water but also ensure our garden will remain viable without constant attention to irrigation. Many thanks to Cree and Joanie for their generous contribution!

Our next project will be a redesign of the white brick wall and the gate entry to further beautify our lovely garden. Keep watching for this improvement in the near future! Remember the garden is available for visiting at your convenience with a key from the Parish Office or from the lockbox on the church side entry gate in the alley.

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.

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:





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.


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.
