Greetings, All Saints families and friends!
I hope this finds you all well as we move into the late summer. Here are some reminders for families of All Saints.
The Eucharistic Festival will be held virtually on August 29, 2020 beginning at 11:00am. This year’s preacher is Mother Hilary Crupi, OJN. She is the Guardian of the Order of Julian of Norwich (orderofjulian.org), a contemplative monastic Order of monks and nuns of the Episcopal Church.
2020-2021 Program Year: For anyone who may have missed the unofficial announcement, we will be pushing back the official start of the 2020-2021 school year from mid-September to early October. We hope this allows families time they need to adjust to whatever school might look like for them. A more official announcement will come soon.
Youth Group Reminder: For those families with students in grades 5-12, your students are welcome to participate in All Saints Youth Group activities. Some 5th grade students are ready to jump in fully with Youth Group activities, while others use 5th-6th grades to test the waters out. Both are okay ways to participate! While there are some activities not available to 5th graders (some diocesan events and other local youth events with other churches), parents, if your student wants to give Youth Group a try at any point this year, they are welcome to do so for All Saints specific events.
That said, we hope to also include those students in grades 4 and under from time to time. Obviously, Youth Group will look very different in this time of COVID, and some of our usual offerings will be on hold for the time being. However, we still wish to continue building up the students of All Saints, pandemic aside, so they may continue to engage in their growing faith journeys. If you have any questions, please contact Erin Wolf at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
