CHORAL EVENSONG WITH ADVENT LESSONS AND CAROLS – Sun, 8 Dec at 4pm

All Saints’ will once again experience one of the Anglican Church’s most simple, yet most beautiful and traditional worship services – full of the harmony of choral praise and choral prayer.

The service of choral evensong is a contemplative service, steeped in the music and rooted in the worship traditions of the 16th century, now being replicated in our All Saints’ Church, a beautiful 125-year-old historic setting for music that remains a joy to both the ear and the heart!

“Choral music talks to the soul” (John Rutter)

JAM JARS

Thank you to everyone who purchased strawberry jam to support Camp Temiskaming.  Once you have enjoyed it, could you lease return the jar and ring back to the church.  This will help offset the cost of making jam next year.  Thanks again.

 

SAMARITAN SHOE BOXES

Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes are available in the foyer today.  Please return the boxes to the church office between November 12 and 15.

 

PRAYER SHAWLS

For many years All Saints’ has had a strong prayer shawl ministry.  Hundreds of prayer shawls have been created and shared!  Those who create them don’t know who the recipient will be but they pray for peace, love, comfort and healing when they create them.  We need more prayer shawls.  If you can’t create one but have extra wool it would be appreciated.  If you become aware of someone who might benefit from one please let us know.

2020 Church Calendars are now available.  They are $5.00 each and can be purchased from the back of the church or at the office.
