It’s a season of fresh starts and new life and beautiful sunlit mornings. Sundays at All Saints are glorious at this time of year as the sanctuary is filled with sunshine and our ministries are energized by the gospel message of God’s incredible love for humanity.
Lots is happening at the parish. This month we welcomed our new Assistant Curate, the Reverend Molly Finlay, to our ministry team! We are so excited to have her working with and among us for the next two years.
The Annual Plant and Used Book Sale is happening on Saturday, May 27, 9am-1pm, in the parking lot at the north end of the church. And on Sunday, May 28, guest preacher (and former Associate Priest at ASW) the Rev. Beverley Williams joins us to talk about this year’s Diocesan FaithWorks campaign. Beverley is now Executive Director of the Flemingdon Park Ministry.
On Saturday, June 3, you can enjoy a high tea – complete with perfect little sandwiches and sweets – as we mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation. If you were at last year’s tea for All Saints’ own 150th anniversary, you’ll know this an event not to be missed. Tickets are $20 and selling out fast.
Then for Sunday, June 4 (Pentecost), the Archbishop will be celebrate and preach at the 10:00 am service when several of our parishioners, including some of our favourite teens, will be confirmed in the faith.
Saturday, June 17, the ASW Men’s Group has its next breakfast meeting, and on Sunday, June 25, the 2017 school bursary will be presented to a chosen applicant as part of the regular worship service.
So, yes, lots of special events, but every Sunday is special at All Saints and you are welcome anytime. After every 10am service, we gather in the parish hall for coffee, tea, treats, and conversation. You are invited there, too.
As the days get longer and brighter, consider spending some of your weekend with us. You will leave with renewed sense of energy and joy.
