As you may have heard, our search for a new rector has been successful. Thank you so much for your prayers, patience, and support as we went through the process. A new chapter in the All Saints story will soon begin and we owe many thanks to our church family, Mtr Laura, and Fr Bob as we begin this exciting next step.
Although we can’t divulge any pertinent information till mid-September, I can tell you that this call was  unanimously agreed to by our Vestry. Details have been worked out, the Diocese is thrilled with our choice, and in a just a few short weeks, we will be introducing our new rector.
Thank you, one and all!

Naming and Claiming our Ministries Workshop
Are you interested in finding your niche in the Church?
Exploring the many ways of serving God?
Being Christ's hands and feet in the world?

In baptism, we receive the Holy Spirit and gifts for ministry. We also promise to seek and serve Christ in all persons and to respect the dignity of every human being. This is part of our baptismal covenant. This concept is called "4th Day" in Cursillo, "Monday Morning Ministry," and more. 

The Diocesan workshop, "Naming and Claiming Your Ministry," is designed to help you explore these concepts. What did we agree to when we were baptized? What does it mean to continue our faith in our daily life and work? 

Many of you engage in providing ministry as you move about your week, working and caring for others. This is an opportunity to explore your gifts and to more fully recognize opportunities to carry out God's work and to become even more intentional in your daily life and work ministries.

Make plans to attend this workshop from the Diocesan Commission on Ministry - Committee for Baptismal Ministry Development.
