The annual Friends of Epiphany Dinner was again a sell-out event. It was attended by friends of Epiphany Church from throughout Monterey County, including many members of All Saints’. The fundraiser supports not only our mission in Marina but all of its services to the community, including the Thomas Carman Food Pantry, Marina Senior Produce Market, and the Children’s Christmas Gift Program. The meal was prepared by Chef Moises Robles from the Pebble Beach Company, and many wineries supported the evening of festivities with bottles on every table. The Monterey County Weekly wrote about the event and the performance by the Saltshaker Theater.
Epiphany Lutheran & Episcopal Church has been a mission of All Saints’ for eighteen years. The church budget, the outreach commission, and our membership widely support the mission. Epiphany’s ministries provide a haven for people in all walks of life, as they welcome diversity and minister to the needs of those facing times of trouble, sorrow, and sickness. In 2013 we look forward to co-creating more events between the parishioners at our five mission centers: Epiphany, All Saints’ Church, Santa Lucia Chapel, CSUMB campus ministry, and All Saints’ Day School.
