MISSING: Anne is missing her large linen tablecloth which was last used for Brian’s funeral. It is off white with ecru stitching on the edges and is a family heirloom. Please check your closets to see if it was taken home to be washed and accidentally tucked into your family’s laundry.

Fr Lew's New Year Eve Sermon


As the year closes, many thanks go out to everyone who helps make All Saints a family. The Altar Guild, the ushers, the music, the E.Ms, those who lead worship services, those who work behind the scenes, and those who sit in the pews. We are all necessary and we all make a difference.

NEW DOOR! There’s a new door in Foster Hall that replaces the old worn-out one. Please take a moment to thank John for getting everything around to make this happen, and Rich and Doreen for their financial contribution. It looks beautiful and should provide us with much-needed savings in the energy bill.

We are using the favorite hymns suggested by several parishioners. If you would like to see one of yours incorporated into the service write down the name and put it on the secretaries desk.
