Vacation Bible School -
Boys and Girls, Moms and Dads. Get your passports ready, because the VBS flight is preparing for the "Passport for Peru", our VBS for 2017. The dates are set for June 26th - June 30th with our closing on Sunday July 2nd. The flight crew of our dedicated leaders and junior leaders are eager to set off on this great adventure. They will be eagerly waiting to guide you through a wonderful week of Bible stories, crafts, games, and also meeting some real life kids whose lives are so different from ours, through the video time. Keep watching for more information about registration. This will be the most exciting week of the summer.
What is VBS? Ask any child in our Church community, and his or her eyes will light up. It is a week for Vacation Bible School. It is a week of fun learning: about God and what he means to our lives; about Jesus and his promises of everlasting life; and our connections with them and to each other. We often have 75-90+ children, ages 3-12 years, from 9:00am- 12:00noon, Monday - Friday.
We have a very dedicated and faithful group of leaders who look forward each year to be a part of the fun, and in many cases to learn from the children. A very valuable part of our group is our Junior Leaders, age 13 and up. The younger children love them, and they do a wonderful job each year. VBS is a week filled with stories, music, games, crafts, videos, laughter, and very tasty snacks, and loaded with fellowship and fun. It has been a part of All Saints for over 30 years. If you would like to share in all this excitement, let us know at the Office at 834-4501, or Helen at 834-3325. You will have a very rewarding week, and want to come back next year for sure. Registration for the children will be announced at a later date.

Chaplaincy Services at Hospitals in St. John's -
When you are being admitted to a hospital in St. John's you will be asked, "While you are admitted to hospital, would you like to have a visit from a chaplain or pastoral care worker?" Be sure to say "Yes" if you would like a pastoral visit. You will then be asked to identify your religion, and your name will be added to the chaplain's visitation list, and you will then receive a visit from the denominational chaplain within a day or two.
Beyond the Altar Rail is a ministry that we offer to members who are
experiencing a short-term illness that is preventing them from attending our Holy
Eucharist on Sunday mornings. To ensure that you get to receive with your faith community, we will send a Eucharistic Assistant to your home with the bread
and wine during the service. All you need to do is to get your request into us on or before the Thursday prior to the service. Call us at 834-4501
