Thank You! A warm, loving, and gracious thank you to all who sent their love and thoughtfulness in all its forms to Sylvia McKinney and her family in their time of major loss.
May we all continue to keep them in our prayers.
Book Discussion Group Starts This Week! St Philip’s and St Martin’s-in-the-Field book group will be coming together again, this time to discuss the book “White Fragility“. This promises to be an exciting and interesting book discussion for many reasons. We are planning for 4 sessions starting on Tuesday, January 22nd. Meeting times will be somewhat later this time around, 7:30 PM but as always will start promptly. Most, if not all sessions will be at St Philip’s as St Martin’s is undergoing some construction.
There is a sign-up sheet on the information table outside of the sanctuary. All those interested please sign-up soon to reserve a copy of the book…first come, first served. The book costs ~ $14, including tax. Please contact John Merrick if you have any questions at 443-336-4593 (C) or firstname.lastname@example.org. Any volunteers willing to help with set-up/hosting responsibilities whether participating or not should contact John as well.

Diocese of Maryland Legacy Society ~ The Legacy Society is an opportunity for churches to recognize persons who have remembered their church in their will and estate plans. We encourage all parishes to establish a Legacy Society as a part of their development planning. We also have an All Saints Diocesan-wide Legacy Society which honors persons who have remembered either their parish or the Diocese at large in their will and estate plans. Your name is published in the Diocese of Maryland’s convention booklet and you will be invited to a service and reception honoring each member this fall, where both Bishops will present you with a Diocesan Legacy Society Pin. If you are interested or want more information please see John Parham or Pat McGrath.
