O Almighty God, who alone canst order the unruly wills and 
affections of sinful men: Grant unto thy people that they may
love the thing which thou commandest, and desire that 
which thou dost promise; that so, among the sundry and 
manifold changes of the world, our hearts may surely there 
be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the 
Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
BCP, p. 167

So teach us to number our days, that we may present to you a heart of wisdom. (Psalm 90:12)
When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, Woman, behold your son!  Then he said to the disciple, Behold your mother!  And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.  (John 19:25-27)

Dyings an important event, she said.  You cant rehearse for it.  All you can do is try to prepare yourself and others.  You can try to do it right.” (Wallace Stegner, Crossing to Safety
Palm Cross Workshop!

Maundy Thursday Service
This traditional ceremony from the Last Supper of Christ includes the option of foot-washing. It is a simple gesture for those who wish to participate in this meaningful act of kindness. Please keep this in mind as you prepare to come.
Watch Night Prayers
We have a tradition at All Saints of taking turns keeping vigil in the Chapel near the Reserve Sacrament with our prayers on the night Jesus spent in the Garden of Gethsemane.  Each person or persons signs up to cover all the hours from 8:00 p.m. on Maundy Thursday through the night until 8:00 a.m. on Good Friday

Many find this very meaningful time to spend in silent prayer. Resources will be provided. You will find the sign-up sheet on the table in the entryway.
Join us for our beautiful Episcopal Traditions in Holy Week!
“I love Holy Week…
And find the services and traditions we have
so moving and very comforting.
I am drawn to the ceremony. 
You can just sit and listen to the music
and all parts of our liturgy--they are eloquent.
We’re lucky we have beautiful music.” 
Judy Clarke, Junior Warden

For the past twelve years, the Diocese of Oregon has sponsored various diocesan-wide outreach projects.  The project for 2016, “Pennies to Prosperity” was introduced at our diocesan convention in Ashland and will culminate at this year’s convention in Eugene. Millions of people around the world do not have sufficient access to markets and financial services. As a result, people are not able to earn enough to support themselves and their families.

Episcopal Relief & Development and its partners work to create economic opportunities and strengthen communities by finding creative ways to generate and increase income for individuals and their families.
