  • Sunday Adult Christian Education

    Adult Christian Education resumes at 10:10am Sundays in St. Barbara  

    Join us this program year (September – May) as we walk The Path, along with our children and youth. The editors of The Path describe it this way: it “offers readers a clear and easy-to-read introduction to the grand story of the Bible. Follow the path of God’s love all the way from the beginning to the end, from Adam’s creation to John’s  revelation. The Path is an experience unlike any other: an amazing 360-degree overview of the vast, sweeping epic of God’s extraordinary love for ordinary people.” You may read ahead in your own copy (available through Forward Movement) during the week, or simply join us on Sundays (no preparation required) as we explore the “greatest hits” of the Bible. 


    September 10: The Path, Chapters 1 (“God Saw that it was Good”) and 2 (“The Sign of the Covenant”)


    September 17: The Path, Chapter 3 (“The Ancestor of a Multitude”)


    September 24: All Parish Service Hour. Inspired by one of our 5th graders, we will be making blankets for our neighbors at Maryland Gardens, as well as notes and other ways to reach out to them. 


    October 1: The Path, Chapter 4 (“Joseph Had a Dream”)


    October 8: The Rev. Canon Victor Austin discusses his book, "Losing Susan" about his wife's 34 year battle with cancer. 


    October 15: The Path, Chapter 5 (“I AM WHO I AM”)

    October 29: The Path, Chapter 6 (“The Waters Were Divided”)

  • Mindful Eating Workshop at All Saints'

    Love it or hate it, your relationship with food is ever-present. We have to eat to live, and sometimes may live to eat, but one way or another, food is rarely far away. What does it mean to eat mindfully? Eating mindfully engages your heart, soul, body, and mind in a practice that requires your full participation in choosing, preparing, and eating food. It frees us from anxiety about the future or past, strengthens our relationship with God, and more fully celebrates the gift of table fellowship. It’s a simple gift we have access to multiple times a day, if we learn how. All Saints is delighted to bring you a short course in Mindful Eating this upcoming Fall. October 26, and November 2, 9, and 16, we will meet in the Urbano Library from 7:00-8:30pm to explore cooking and sharing food as a holy activity and you will learn techniques to improve your ability to ask why you want to eat and what your body really needs. Join us for this special class and transform your relationship with food.Contact Health Ministries Coordinator Patrice Al-Shatti, LMSW, at palshatti@allsaints.org for more information.

  • Weekly Centering Prayer

    Saturdays 8:30am, the All Saints’ Centering Prayer Group has weekly meetings in the Chapel. This time of prayer is open to anyone who is interested in practicing the ancient, yet timely practice of Centering Prayer, or learning more about it. The Practice of Centering Prayer familiarizes us with God’s first language – SILENCE. Participation in a weekly Centering Prayer group encourages perseverance in your individual practice, further input through resources and discussions, and an opportunity to share the spiritual journey. Additional information can be found in the Centering Prayer brochure, located in the tract rack, or by contacting Robin Wright at rbnrit@cox.net, Sara Soller at sara.soller@gmail.com, or Jennifer King at jbk393@yahoo.com.
