"Lord, teach us to pray.": Luke 11:1-13
The Lord's Prayer from St. Alban's Psalter
O God, the protector of all that trust in thee, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:
Increase and multiply upon us thy mercy; that, thou being our ruler and guide, we may so pass
through things temporal, that we finally lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. BCP 179
Licenses for Lay Ministries

I invite you to take the time to stop by the hallway leading to the Sacristy in order to see the new licenses issued by Bishop Michael Hanley. These include licenses for Eucharistic Minister, Eucharistic Visitor, and Worship Leader in our parish.  These licenses are granted for three years at a time.
We have a wonderful group of active persons in these essential ministries of All Saints!  Two new persons have now been licensed as Eucharistic Ministers and Worship Leaders:  Jacob Mathai and Miriam Lain. 

We will celebrate and recognize all of these people this Sunday, July 24!

Yours in love, prayer and service,

Mother Laura

"There are many blank sign-up spaces on the Altar Flower chart in the Narthex. Perhaps you would like to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, a special time or remember family and/or friends. Please look at the open blanks on various dates the remainder of this year (two each Sunday) and select a date or dates for your remembrances. The Altar Guild thanks you!"
