We are most grateful for the 81 pledges of $165,522 that we received in our 2019 Stewardship Campaign surpassing our goal of $160,000. Thank you all so very much! We asked you to join us in a leap of faith as we pressed toward this new goal for the upcoming year so that we could continue to support our amazing programs, staff, and having Mother Andria work with us to begin a new vision. Our 2019 Stewardship Campaign if officially over, but if you didn’t pledge and would like to, you still may do so. Pledge Cards are available in the Narthex or from the Church Office if you need one. You can drop them off at the Church Office, place them in the Offertory Plate on Sunday, or mail them to the church. Please know that your generous contributions to All Saints help make us a vibrant worship community and are truly appreciated by us. Your continued vital financial support is truly a blessing to our All Saints Community.

A Note from Our Deacon: 

Many thanks to everyone for your generous and swift response to my request for blankets for the homeless folks we help at the St. Francis Closet (or I should say, “Room”) in the Mustard Seed & Book Nook. We are now well supplied with many warm, soft blankets. We also have plenty of socks, hats, and scarves.

We are now in need of warm gloves, even mittens and disposable hand warmers. Lately I have seen the adverse effects of cold weather on the hands of people who have to live outside all day; it can quite unsettling. But we can help.


Old or extra pairs of ski gloves, glove liners, dollar store “one size fits all” gloves, mittens

Disposable hand warmer 2-packs; they give about 10 hours of heat.

If you receive a gift card for Christmas, use part of it to buy a pair of gloves for the homeless.

Where to bring them:

The Mustard Seed/Book Nook, Dn. Kathleen’s office (near the kitchen),  the William Temple blue barrel (I will check it). You can even give it to me in person at any time.

God bless you all!

Deacon Kathleen
