Greetings to all. We are still in the midst of strange times, but we are learning to adapt and connect differently while we are apart. To those who have been and are celebrating birthdays, Happy Birthday! We have several students and adults who have been making the best of the current pandemic to still find ways to celebrate and share joy—may God’s blessings be upon you as you begin another year!
Here are some updates from the Youth Ministry at All Saints:
Sunday School and Youth Group will be meeting via Zoom on Wednesdays for the remainder of the program year. Links for these calls are sent out via the Weekly Update emails and will NOT be posted publicly for security purposes. For those wishing to join us, please contact me for the link. I ask that at least one parent/family be present, if possible, for Sunday School calls. THANK YOU to the adults who have joined me so far to help moderate!
Sunday School (grades 5 & under): 4:00-4:30pm | Youth Group (grades 5 & older): 6:30-8:00pm
*For those wishing to pray Compline with the Youth Group Wednesday evenings at 7:45pm, please contact me for the Zoom meeting link. Non-Youth Group guests are encouraged to join the call beginning at 7:40pm. Thank you!*
Worship Schedule: There is a new working virtual Worship Schedule for All Saints available on the All Saints Facebook page as well as the All Saints and Youth Ministry websites. The majority of these services will be offered via Facebook live through the church’s Facebook page (please follow us if you don’t already to receive notifications). Services marked as Zoom gatherings will take place via Zoom video conference calls. Please contact Fr. Christopher at firstname.lastname@example.org for Zoom links.
Resources webpage: A webpage dedicated to sharing accurate information regarding COVID-19, as well as resources for formation, worship, pastoral care, etc. will be made available through the Diocese of Fond du Lac within the next week or so. In the meantime, feel free to explore the Resources page on the All Saints Youth Ministry website (CLICK HERE). Some resources are also being shared in the All Saints Youth Ministry Facebook group (CLICK HERE).

Friends, as it’s been said before, please continue to hold one another in prayer as we trek forward. God is greater than anything fearsome thing we face, and as Paul mentions in his writings, nothing can separate us from the love of God. “All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.” (Julian of Norwich)
