O God, you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbor: Grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Our new nursery in the Homestead Preschool
is ready for childcare on Sundays!
Thank you all for my lovely birthday cake and celebration. All Saints is such a loving and caring church, and I'm so glad I'm now part of you all.
~ Lovingly, Marjorie


Most people are current on their Financial Pledges. We appreciate it so much, especially during the summer months! Thank you!
We need help in covering Joe Marlia's duties while he's away on vacation. All Saints is willing to pay for help covering the two Saturday afternoons of July 15th and 22nd.

It's very important to have the cleaning done after the Hot Meals program in the morning. Basic job description:  mop cleaning parish hall floor and kitchen floor, cleaning bathrooms, filling paper towel holders and toilet paper holders.

Please let me know if you can help, or know someone who can. Thank you!
~ Judy Clark, Junior Warden  
We purchased 7 new fans that are to remain in the sanctuary during warm weather. You will probably find it cooler if you sit at the end of the pews near the side aisles where the air flow is more direct. Also, sitting near the center aisle under the glass part of the roof is much warmer, and the left side of the sanctuary becomes warmer as the sunlight pours in through the glass as it gets closer to noon.  

Generally it's best to leave the outside doors closed and not let in heat from the parking lots and pavements. We have the blower pulling cooler air in during the night and that should keep the nave cooler until late morning. 

And the fewer electric lights burning in the parish hall, kitchen and nursery, the cooler it will be. Fortunately we have lots of windows for light! Thanks for your help in working with Mother Nature!

Eastmoreland Garage Sale a HUGE Success!
All Saints East Moreland Garage Sale earned $737 to date.  We have 4 large items that will be sold separately, a snowblower, a treadmill, a loom and a piece of art.  We expect another $350-$600 in income from these items and will advise of the final outcome.  The heat took a toll on the number of shoppers this year, as we had no one waiting for the sale to start at 8 a.m., which is highly unusual. 

Our gratitude to Chris McClave for hosting the sale, she provided coffee, muffins and lunch to the volunteers.  Our pre-sale pricers were Lisa Alan, Micki Keiter, and Judy Heverly.  Our workers of the day were Chris Broderick, Nancy Carr, Micki, Mikki Wooldridge, Amelia and Nathan Brooks, Barbara White, Liz Powers, Susanne and Chuck Bateman, Kathy Martin, Mary Earl.  Liz Campenelli, helped with pre sale announcements. 

Thank you everyone, it is a group effort that makes it fun and a success.  ~ Sonja Miller

Bible Study Leadership

Our Tuesday morning Bible study group will resume meeting in Parish Hall this fall.  We will be welcoming a new leader of this open-ended group, grateful for Pat tenBroeke's faithful service as its leader over the last 10 years. 

I am pleased to announce that Rev. Liz Powers has agreed to be the new leader of this group that includes discussion of scripture, intercessory prayer and a card ministry.  All interested persons are welcome to participate from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m.  weekly. 

~ Mother Laura


Adult Forum will be on hiatus until Fall.
Happy Summer! 

With summer upon us, Deacon Kathleen and the Prayer Shawl Ministry reach out to you with a few requests.
1. When you are using a hotel room or cruise ship room (we wish)  and there are toiletries provided that you will not be using, please remember that personal hygiene items are given to our Hot Meals recipients at the Christmas Hot Meals Luncheon. Soap, shampoo, body lotion, etc are always welcome. 
2. When you next visit your dentist, please inquire if the dental office would like to donate dental floss, toothpaste, or toothbrushes. Now is a good time to ask about contributing these items as near the holidays there are a number of requests for these contributions.
3. If you happen upon a good sock sale, we always tries to have a pair of new socks available for our Hot Meals guests. Darker colors are best, as are warmer socks. There is a greater need for men's socks than women's but both are welcome.
While you enjoy your summer adventures, please remember the less fortunate. Any items that you are able to collect may be given to Deacon Kathleen or any member of the Prayer Shawl Ministry.
Thank you for your generosity.
Sunday schedule for greeters to welcome visitors and guests:
July 9: Laurie McDowell
July 16: Ruth Mumm
Thanks again for your participation. It's been going well so far and I think you will find it enjoyable to connect with newcomers. If you have any questions, just ask myself or Kathy Martin. If a conflict comes up and you have to change your schedule, please contact me via email.
Thank you,
Chris Broderick
Cursillo is a ministry in the Episcopal Church that helps Christians to deeply experience both the love of God and love of one another. A Cursillo weekend brings together a diverse group of participants and team members for three days of listening, learning, singing, praying, sharing, eating, and laughing. What is experienced on the weekend then serves as a springboard to a life of ongoing spiritual development, in the company of others, and as an inspiration for a life of reaching out to the world with the love of Jesus Christ.

Learn more about Cursillo and how you can participate in the upcoming weekend, July 27-30.

For more information, see Next Cursillo is a Co-Ed (both Men and Women) from Thursday, July 27 – Sunday, July 30,2017, to be held at Oregon Christian Convention Center in Turner, just outside Salem. If you would like to attend, contact your clergy for more information, or email
