New Youth Director Selected!
Geoff Sasser has accepted our offer to become our Youth Director.  His position will officially  begin September 1, 2015.  We are blessed indeed by his plans to become part of our All Saints Staff!  He will be completing his time with Grace Memorial Episcopal Church in the near future, and is looking forward to making our parish his church home and family this summer.  Geoff brings much experience in youth ministry, is articulate and passionate about it, ready to pick up where Chris Bailey left off.  We give thanks to God for guiding him to us!
Mother Laura
A big thank you has gone to 5-year-old, Mary, who brought her cold water, ice pop and advice stand to our yard sale a week ago.  At the end of the sale, she donated all her earnings to the church.

North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry elected as 27th Presiding Bishop
Curry was elected on the first ballot by the House of Bishops from a group of four nominees. He received 121 votes of a total 174 cast.  The vote was confirmed later by the House of Deputies by a vote of 800 to 12.  Curry said, “we are followers of Jesus – Jesus of Nazareth – and the truth is we’ve got a message to proclaim, a life to live and something to share and offer the world. There’s a lot of suffering in this world. There’s a lot of heartache, there’s a lot of nightmare. We are people who believe that God has a dream and a vision for this world, and that Jesus has shown us how to follow him in the direction of that and how to help this world live into God’s dream and vision for us now."
The beginning of Curry’s ministry will be celebrated by a liturgy on November. 1, All Saints Day, at Washington National Cathedral.

“There is an urgent need to develop policies so that, in the next few years, the emission of carbon dioxide and other highly polluting gases can be drastically reduced, for example, substituting for fossil fuels and developing sources of renewable energy.”   Pope Francis
Featured FAQs; frequently asked questions about Episcopal Church teachings, terminology, and traditions.

Term for the order of bishops, derived from the Greek word for "overseer."  The "historic episcopate" is one of the points of the Chicago-Lambeth Quadrilateral and a central tenet of Anglicanism.  It refers to the belief that bishops are responsible for handing down the traditions of the church from one generation to another, beginning with the apostles.  Bishops are thus an inherent part of the faith committed by Jesus Christ to the apostles, and are called to unify the church and to preserve its traditions.
