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

Friday and Saturday—Retreat with Bishop Mary: Our time of discernment with Bishop Mary will begin with a potluck dinner on Friday evening, April 17, at 6:00 p.m. On Saturday we’ll meet from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with a continental breakfast and sack lunch. Bishop Mary will guide us through a process of self-definition as a parish: Who are we? What are our needs? What is our spirituality at All Saints’? What makes us tick? What do we want and need in our new priest? This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know the bishop and help shape the future of our congregation. The sign-up sheet is in the back of the church on a clipboard.
