ABOUT US >

Welcome to All Saints Episcopal Church

"Tell the daughter of Zion,
Look, your king is coming to you,
humble, and mounted on a donkey,
and on a colt, the foal of a donkey."

 

The crowds that went ahead of him and that followed were shouting,

 

"Hosanna to the Son of David!
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest heaven!"

Join us online as we celebrate The Passion, Death

and Resurrection of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

A Prayer for the Search Committee

 

Almighty God, you graciously meet us in all the avenues of our life. In this period of transition, look kindly on the people of All Saints as we seek a new Rector. Grant the members of the Search Committee discerning and enquiring hearts. Gift the people of the parish with listening hearts that they may truly hear each other. Touch those priests seeking a new ministry, and by your Holy Spirit bring all things together, through your Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Note From Fr. Stephen ...

Dear fellow pilgrims of the faith at All Saints:

I am mindful that it is going to feel strange, as we enter the most holy of weeks in the life of the Church Universal, and not be present with each other in the church. The usual rhythm of the week will be lacking: Palm Sunday and Palms, Maundy Thursday and Foot Washing; Good Friday and the Way of the Cross; and most of all, the joy of Easter Day, with the church full of colour and bright with the joy of families and friends. Whatever one might think of it: this Holy Week will be different.

 

And yet, perhaps in the midst of our “socially isolated lives” this Holy Week may be more profound and meaningful than others…I hope what follows will make it seem so.

 

Palm Sunday

A service of Blessing of the Palms, followed by a service of ante-communion with sermon will be broadcast from the church, via Zoom and Facebook Live at 10 am. The invitation to join the Zoom service is below:

Diocesan information and other services

You can access other services that have been made available via the diocesan web site. You should also be advised to ensure you receive all the information that is posted from the diocese, the All Saints email list has been shared with the communications officer of the diocese. This list is not shared with any other party, and you can unsubscribe at any time.

 

Weekly Bible Study

The first attempt at Zooming the weekly Bible Study last Wednesday was very successful, and I have been asked to continue the Bible Study after Easter…so watch this space…

 

Search Committee

The deadline for returning your completed questionnaire is Friday the 10th April, please see the parish news below.

 

For all the frustration of not being able to “be church” I look forward to seeing you all via social media on Palm Sunday. Be safe, be well, keep in touch, and pray for yourself and others; above all, give thanks to God.   Blessings, Fr. Stephen

From Fr. Stephen ...

The church is closed and all church activities (except for online services) have been suspended until further notice. Staff have been advised to use their own discretion on whether to work from the church office or from home. With that in mind, Paula will be in the office some days between10 am-1 pm. Please call to make sure she is there if you have business with the office. Feel free to make contact via email:

all-saints@live.com.

Along with many clergy in the diocese, I fall into the high risk category, therefore it is not appropriate that I make any pastoral calls. However, I am available by phone, should you want to talk with me.

 

These are trying times for all of us, especially now that many small businesses have been mandated to close. I encourage your prayers for those who have been infected by COVID-19, for those whose jobs are in jeopardy, and for those of our community of all ages who are confined to their homes.

 

Almighty God, we entrust all who are dear to unto thy never-failing care and love, for this life, and the life to come, knowing that thou art doing for them better things than we can desire or pray for;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Parish News

 

Diocesan News -- you will have received previously a forwarded email detailing opportunities available through their website -- link below. 

Bishop Scanlan shares her weekly message to our diocese and a video introducing new Diocesan Holy Week Resources. The resources can be found online at 

https://diocesecpa.org/holy-week-2020/

 

Masks For You, Made With Love

One of our parishioners and her friends have graciously made masks for COVID-19 protection. You can find them in the soup pot next to the door nearest the office entrance, mid-building off the parking lot. They are washable and re-usable. This is a blessing as masks to purchase are impossible to find right now. There are two in a pack. Please take just one package.

 

A Note From the Search Committee

Hello Fellow Parishioners,

Please find a digital copy of our church survey attached.  It is only 20 questions and very easy to understand!  There are several options for you in responding to the survey:

1) You can fill it out online at home.

2) If you need any assistance with the survey, please contact Paula and someone from the Search Committee will contact you to assist.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1HF-1q1SIEPdbwbuJtpPiVqleFVwerHQFPES02Pk6DK4/edit  

The survey is intended for each member of the Parish to take (ages 13 and older), not just one per home.  We would appreciate your taking the survey by Friday, April 10, so we can continue our journey toward hiring our next Rector.

We thank you in advance for your assistance

in helping us find the new Rector for All Saints.
