We are again in need of filling our shelves…we are looking for canned vegetables, meat and fruit, cereal, pasta and sauce, and peanut butter and jelly.

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.
Family & Friends Day Celebration! You remember this day from years past…another day of loving memories can be made at this year’s Family & Friends Day Celebration on Sunday, November 18th, 2018 at 10:00am (there is only ONE service this day). Our guest speaker for this day is The Reverend Michele Hagans, Canon for Ministry Indicatives in the Diocese of Washington, D.C. In keeping with our financial goals this day, we ask each adult member to contribute at least $100.00 and each young adult to contribute $10.00. And of course, if you can give more that will help us exceed our goal of $6,500.00. Following our worship service we will celebrate with a pre-Thanksgiving Dinner in the Great Hall. Hope you all are able to share this special day with us, so invite your family and friends to come along!
