Our 2021 Flower Services Will Be Live-Streamed

Our Flower Service at Dunns Hill Road, which was held on Sunday, July 25th, was extremely well attended.  It was live-streamed to Facebook, and can be viewed External link opens in new tab or windowhere.


Our Church Road Flower Service will be on Sunday, August 01st, starting at 2:00pm, and it too will be live streamed to FaceBook.  While pre-registering is not mandatory, keeping a contact tracing list of names and telephone numbers is.  To help us ensure a swift and easy flow of traffic at the cemetery gates, we encourage you to pre-register online at our website by clicking here, or by calling our Parish Office at 834-4501. 


Following with tradition, if the weather on Sunday afternoon is inclement, the service will be moved to the first available evening that has suitable weather, and will start at 7:00pm.  We will post any updates here and on our External link opens in new tab or windowFaceBook page.

Children's BBQ and Campfire an Overwhelming Success

 Our Children's BBQ and Campfire which was held on Wednesday evening of this week was an overwhelming success.  The rain finally let-up just before startup, and even though the wind was from the Northeast, it did not dampen the spirits of some 30 children, parents and grandparents.  Federal MP Ken McDonald and Rev Sam also came along and joined in the festivities.


We extend many thanks to the ladies who helped with the hotdogs and treats, the guys who managed the campfire, and of course our music man.


All Saints is Live-Streaming 10:00am Services

Every Sunday morning at 10:00am, All Saints CBS will be live streaming our Holy Eucharist service on FaceBook, and it will later be archived on YouTube as well.  Please understand that as we are becoming familiar with this new technology we may have a few bumps along the way, and we ask for your patience and feedback in this regard.

 

While we are only currently live-steaming on Facebook, in the very near future we hope to simultaneously live-stream on both External link opens in new tab or windowFaceBook and External link opens in new tab or windowYouTube.  We will continue to archive for future viewing at your leisure.  We welcome your comments and suggestions via email at External link opens in new tab or windowcommunications@allsaintsparish.ca


Sending a Great Big Thanks!!!

We would like to send a great big thank-you to Derrick and Carol Anne Toope for not only donating, but also arranging for the planting of some very beautiful flowers in our Memorial Flower Planter at our Dunn’s Hill Road Cemetery. 


While visiting our Cemetery, please take the time to enjoy this wonderful floral arrangement.  While attending our annual Flower Service on July 25th this Memorial Flower Planter will be a focal point!!

Our Alongsider's Team would like to make their current monthly prayer services available to you simply by External link opens in new tab or windowclicking here.


Alongsiders are members of our Parish who, due to circumstances of sickness, mobility, age, etc., can not physically attend a worship service at our Church.  However, they still want to be part of the worship, and where possible, to help from home.  The Alongsiders program accomplishes this.  Each month, a service for each Sunday is prayerfully put together, similar to the in-Church service, and is then delivered to each Parishioner as part of a home visit.  A vital part of our ministry is ‘praying alongside’ our brothers and sisters in Christ.  Currently we have 14 members in the Parish of All Saints.

The Candle - Our Weekly Newsletter

For many years now, our Parish has published our weekly information bulletin, The Candle, that was handed out at each Sunday service.  It was our way to keep our Parishioners informed about what was happening in our Parish, and a medium to seek support when we needed it.  The current COVID pandemic has offered many challenges to our community, none the least of which is our ability to physically gather together in person on a weekly basis for our faith worship.  We also loose the ability to "really" carry out some of our traditions that helped bind and grow our family spirit.


The Candle, like most other things these days, is now shared digitally, and can be found not only on External link opens in new tab or windowour website, but we also attempt to email it to those for whom we have contact information for.  To get added to that distribution list, simply External link opens in new tab or windowclick here to send us your details.


We would also like to ask you that if you have any items you would like to share, such as birthday greetings (oh how we miss the fun spirit of our Birthday Sundays) or anniversaries, or even an article that you may have seen or read that you feel others might enjoy, please feel free to pass them along to communications@allsaintsparish.ca.   Together we can start "feeling together" once more - if not in body, then in spirit.


Also, as you will note when you read The Candle, you have the opportunity to bring special attention to a loved one by actually sponsoring The Candle for a given week, or even place a full page memorial, complete with a picture.
