All Saints will worship Sunday, September 17 at 8 am 10 am.  Church School will be taught by Caroline Westin-Garcia.

 

It’s Homecoming Sunday!  You’re invited to a special brunch in Davidson Hall following the 10 am service.  It’s also a Homecoming for Martine Chahine, who returns to us after several months with her family in France.

 

On Sunday evening at 6 pm, I’d love to see you at Leonia’s International Day of Peace commemoration, is front of the United Methodist Church on Broad Avenue.  It’s primarily a secular event, however, I have been invited to say a closing prayer.  Annie Byerly is All Saints’ liaison for this event.

 

Bill McColl will lead Morning Prayer at 10 am on Sunday September 24.  I’m grateful to Bill for his important ministry.  Lynne and I will be conducting the Annual Adult Education Retreat at Holy Cross Monastery from September 22-24.

 

Julie and Glenn Marshall invite you to their home for the Second “Social League Cocktail Party.”  A donation of $25 per person is requested.  Please ask Julie what you can bring.  This event is sponsored by the Fundraising Committee.

 

You may provide relief for those who need help following Hurricane Harvey or Hurricane Irma by writing a check to All Saints and writing “Hurricanes” on the memo line.  Your donation will be given to Episcopal Relief and Development (“ERD).  Through today (September 14) we have collected $665.00.

 

A reminder that the All Saints’ office is open Monday-Thursday from 10 am – 6 pm.  It’s closed on Friday, which is also my day off.  However, the office will be closed next Thursday, September 21.
