Blessing of the Animals Sunday is only a week away on Sunday, October 1 at 10 am.  Please bring your pets – live or in photograph, or a stuffed toy – so that they may be blessed.

 

Thank you for participating in Homecoming Sunday, and a special thank you to all who prepared and served the food and who set up Davidson Hall for this special occasion.

 

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 help those in need following Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Maria 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 20) we have collected $900.00.

 

Thank you also for your participation in the Leonia International Peace Day commemoration last Saturday and Sunday.  Altogether, twelve (!) All Saints children participated.  At the Sunday evening event, our children coordinated a very active craft table, creating origami peace cranes.  As Vicki Beall said, “it really was a fantastic event and it was good to see all of you!”
