Annual Welcome Back Cookout, Sunday, Sept 7th

church_cookoutThe Sunday after Labor Day, the Parish Life Committee will be hosting the annual Welcome Back cookout. It is the beginning of our church school program year as well as other regular activities that tend to “go on vacation” during the summer. There will be hot dogs, hamburgers, etc. served in the inner courtyard following the 10am service (or in the Parish Hall in the case of inclement weather). If you would like to bring a salad or a dessert to share it will be greatly appreciated; everything else will be provided.

Hope to see you all there!!

Sermon

11 Pentecost—Proper 16-A

William Bradbury

 

 

Exodus 1:8-2:10

Psalm 124

Romans 12:1-8

Matthew 16:13-20

Richard Rohr says that one of his staff members at the Center for Action and Contemplation has a neighbor in south Albuquerque, who is a devout Catholic: this neighbor attends Mass every Sunday, and has a statue of the BVM in his front yard, and yet he is, according to Rohr, by word and deed “racist to the core.” Continue reading

Choir Time

From Maggie Marshall, Minister of Musicyouth_choir

This cool weather helps us, whether or not we want it to, to think of the fall and switching gears. We have an active music program with four choir rehearsals on Thursday nights. Our vocal choirs start with grade 1 or 2 (as soon as a child can read words) and goes up from there. Last year, our choirs re-branded themselves. Continue reading

A Walk in the Park?

ASC_reflections_on_the_way

Dear Friends in Christ,
During my retreat in July at Emery House, which is run by the monks of SSJE, the religious order to which our bishop belongs, I took two afternoon walks in the neighboring Maudslay State Park, which comprises 450 acres overlooking the Merrimack River as it runs through Newburyport. What captivated me most was not the magnificent view of the river from the high bluff, but the dilapidated buildings that remain of the early 20th century estate of Frederick Strong Moseley.

St Paul’s Feeding Program – Eliot Church

All Saints currently has a couple opportunities to join this very rewarding ministry which feeds our neighbors on the second Wednesday of each month. And while the personal commitment is rather small the impact of this ministry is significant. The first opportunity would be to join one of our feeding teams which provides and serves a meal just three times a year. And while we are blessed with fairly well staffed teams there is currently the need for a few more team members. The second opportunity would be to help us build a “substitute List” as occasionally thing come up and team members are unable to help out on their scheduled date leaving their team shorthanded. St Paul’s has been feeding on average over 100 people each day so having a full team is imperative to each teams ability to complete this task. It is vital that we have enough help each month as there are so many people counting on All Saints to feed the people on our scheduled Wednesdays. Having a list of people in reserve would be a great blessing to team leaders and everyone involved. If you are interested in this mission or if you have any question at all please feel free to speak to or contact either Linda Masiello lbrentmasiello@verizon.net or Deb Dutton debdutton@hotmail.com
