Jesus appears to his disciples on the Sea of Tiberias
O God, whose blessed Son did manifest himself to his disciples 
in the breaking of bread: Open, we pray thee, the eyes of our 
faith, that we may behold him in all his redeeming work; 
through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth
and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one 
God, now and for ever. Amen.
BCP 172.
Special Thanks!
I know all of our spirits were lifted by the beautiful colors of the tulips, jonquils, and violets that greeted us as we arrived at church on Easter Day. They were the result of the inspiration, time and effort of our Senior Warden, Laurie McDowell! We thank her for the joyful greeting they provided, reminding us of the Resurrection! Thank you very much, Laurie!

Also, we thank Jerry Meter for taking the initiative on our behalf, to submit two excellent articles in the Oregonian announcing our Holy Week services. They were very welcoming and were an effective outreach for All Saints.  Thank you, Jerry!

We need your help to clean and beautify the church grounds.
SATURDAY, APRIL 9th from 9 to 11:30 a.m.
Please bring rakes, shovels, clippers, and brooms.
Pizza lunch provided for all workers!

Call Judy Clark, 605-670-8141 for more information 
P.S. Let us know if you need written credit for school 
community service requirements.  We can provide it!
Landscaping at All Saints
A beautiful golden yellow-blossomed Exbury Azalea on the west side of the church was cut down just as it was setting forth buds to bloom.
Please: if anyone believes that any of our shrubs, bushes, trees or plants need to be removed, trimmed or relocated, please first talk with your Junior Warden, Judy Clark. Please do not go ahead and remove, trim or relocate without checking with her.
Thank you!
Prayer for the Earth
I have come to terms with the future.
From this day onward I will walk easy on the earth.
Plant trees. Kill no living things.
Live in harmony with all creatures.
I will restore the earth where I am.
Use no more of its resources than I need.
And listen, listen to what it is telling me.
