Say Yes to Kids !!!

This year the Anglican Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador is joining forces with the AFC's Say Yes! to Kids campaign to raise funds to revitalize youth ministry in our Diocese.


Whether we are sponsoring delegates to CLAY, supporting the Church Lads Brigade, or actively discerning where God might be calling us to new ministry with children, youth, and young adults, these activities are evidence of our Faith in action. Together we are doing the work, planting the seeds, and praying all the while that these efforts will help to grow strong and vibrant communities of faith as more young people come to know and love Jesus Christ.


Your gifts to this year’s Say Yes! to Kids fundraising effort will help to nurture many of the seeds of youth ministry and outreach that are already growing in this diocese, and to help us plant some new ones! And for every $20 in support of our campaign, $4 will support national youth-centred grants through AFC.  ​Thank you for giving generously!


Meet our All Saints CBS Choir

We are so proud of our All Saints CBS Choir. They have grown both in numbers and in chorus, and they add so much to our worship services. Kudos to them all, and thank-you Gloria for leading such a great Team.

Restrictions Lifted on Common Cup and Baptism Water

Effective May 28, 2023, the Bishop has given permission for the return of the shared chalice at the Holy Eucharist, and the sharing of the baptismal water among candidates within the liturgy of Holy Baptism.  This is only for those who wish to receive, and it does not mean that anyone who is uncomfortable with receiving the chalice must receive it - it is entirely left to the person's own discretion.  The practice of intinction (dipping the host into the wine) is not permitted.  Also, the sharing of consecrated water from the font among multiple baptismal candidates is now permitted, with the priest wearing a mask and sanitizing their hands between candidates.  If a parent is uncomfortable, they may ask for separate consecrated water.  Once again, nobody should feel uncomfortable asking to be excluded from this open practice.


Meet our Saints Alive Band

External link opens in new tab or windowAll Saints Anglican Parish CBS is delighted to highlight our Parish band members who play an active role in the music ministry of our Parish.  The Saints Alive Band typically play on the second Sunday of every month.  However, over the next number of weeks while our organist is away on a well deserved vacation, they will be providing our music each and every Sunday morning.


The members are, from left to right:  Sandra Taylor (accordion), Shirley Noseworthy (guitar and vocals), Norman Noseworthy (guitar), Alvin Beck (guitar and vocals), Frank Hender (bass guitar), Percy Greenslade (guitar and vocal), and Jane Peach (harmonica)

External link opens in new tab or window

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.  To visit all past issues click External link opens in new tab or windowhere.


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.


Prayer Chain Update

We are happy to announce that our "Prayer Chain" has been updated and our new coordinator is Linda McDonald.  The prayer chain is available to anyone who would like our prayer warriors to pray to our Heavenly Father on their behalf.  Confidentiality is of the utmost importance to us and to you.  God's blessings to you all.  "Carry one another's burdens."
