Prayer @ Home Summer Program
Thank you to everyone who helped provide feedback about summer programming. At this time, All Saints will not be providing any in-person youth ministry events for Summer 2020. However, we are in the middle of our first of two weeks of “Prayer @ Home”, which is a week of daily prompts that encourage us to engage more intentionally with our prayer life.
This first week, July 5-11, provides opportunities for us to: 1. Engage in daily worship with the Daily Offices; 2. Learn and practice the “5 Finger Prayer” with a prayer board activity; and 3. Dig deeper into the Baptismal Covenant and the five key questions that come with it. The week also includes a mid-week check-in that will take place tonight, July 8, from 6:45-7:30pm via Zoom.
The second week of Prayer @ Home will take place Aug. 2-8, and the three daily prompts will include: 1. Engage in daily worship with the Daily Offices; 2. Exploring the Lord’s Prayer; and 3. Practicing sharing pieces of our faith stories with others (also known as evangelism). There will also be a mid-week check in on Wednesday, Aug. 5 from 6:45-7:30pm via Zoom.
The daily prompts may be found on the All Saints Youth Ministry website, the All Saints Youth Ministry Facebook group, and the All Saints parish Instagram account. Zoom call details may be found HERE or via the Youth Ministry Weekly Update email (CLICK HERE to sign up).
The Eucharistic Festival date has moved to August 29, 2020 and will be held virtually beginning at 11:00am. You can find more information at the diocesan website (CLICK HERE). 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.
