Bishop Deon Wears Chasuble Gift

Thanks to Our Junior Warden

While we have been away from the church building, our Junior Warden has been hard at work these past few months.  Stanley Johnson arranged for the purchase of a heavy duty storage shelter (see photo below). It is conveniently located in the southeast corner of the rear parking lot.

The ultimate goal is to save monthly fees by removing all church assets from the rental storage shelter.  Items that we plan to keep will be stored in the new shelter.

In the meantime, our new shelter has temporarily housed fixtures removed from inside the building to clear space so that floors and surfaces could be thoroughly sanitized.  Stanley gave the structure a beautiful facelift last week by painting the exterior.  KUDOS TO  STANLEY!

NEWSLETTER

Before both of our parishes merged into the unified Episcopal Church of All Saints and Ascension in January of 2018, the All Saints Vestry and the Ascension Bishop’s Committee appointed a new task force to improve communications for the new parish.  They established the Communications Committee.

newsletter front cover jan 18One of the first tasks this new committee tackled was the resurrection of the “Broadcast” newsletter.   On January 1st of 2018, the first quarterly “Messenger” parish newsletter was mailed to all parishioners who had completed a Member Profile Form.  As a courtesy for this first edition, we also mailed newsletters to some past members that have not completed forms.  However, we are currently transitioning to communicating more via electronic media (e.i. this website and email announcements).  As a result, we will be removing unregistered names from the list of those receiving the Messenger via US mail to keep expenses down.
