Almighty and everlasting God, who in the Paschal mystery 
hast established the new covenant of reconciliation:
Grant that all who have been reborn into the fellowship of
Christ's Body may show forth in their lives what they profess
by their faith; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord,
who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Sacrament of Holy Baptism

Dear Friends,

The season of Easter continues through May 1st, at which time baptisms could take place during a Sunday service on a date that is convenient for your family. 

After that, May 15, the Day of Pentecost, is another feast day especially designated for and appropriate to Holy Baptism.

A Celebration of Life

A memorial service is planned for the celebration of the life of Jacqueline Kraft on Saturday, April 9th, at 2:00 p.m. in the sanctuary of All Saints Episcopal Church. A reception for family, friends, and church members will follow in our Parish Hall. 

Jackie Kraft, a member of All Saints for over 50 years, was born on May 12,1936, and returned to her Creator on March 5, 2016.  Condolences may be sent to her husband, Chuck Kraft at Dove Care Services. May her soul now both dance and rejoice in the Presence of God.

Loraine was 94 and strong in her faith. Services are expected to take place in El Sobrante, California, and her ashes scattered off the coast. May her soul sing for joy in the heavenly choir.
A special thank you to our new member, Marjorie Ashcraft, for her assistance in folding and assembling service bulletins. Her cheerful help is much appreciated from week to week and especially throughout Holy Week.  Thank you, Marjorie!
