Today: Children’s Worship at 10:30 a.m.—Pre-kindergarten and elementary children worship in an age-appropriate manner in Room A during the Liturgy of the Word, and then return during the Peace so that they can participate in Holy Communion.

Children’s bulletins are available at the entrance of the church.

Lenten Giving Boxes can be turned in at any time, including Easter Sunday. You could also write a check to All Saints’ Church with “St. Patrick’s” on the memo line. “E-leg mesi,” which in the Creole language is “Thank you”!
