From May 19th to June 23rd during Cross Training, we’ll be preparing teams and plans for our formal participation in events like Kids Day in the Park, the Neighborhood Block Party (June 27th), and other summer opportunities.

HELP EMPOWER YOUNG LEADERS
Early this summer (June 17-23, 2019) Fr. Craig Vickerman will be leading over a dozen ADNE youth to the ACNA Provincial Youth Gathering (PYG) being held in Dallas Texas. The Vickerman family (Fr. Craig, Anna, Alethea and Andrew) were a vital part of our All Saints community during Craig’s time at seminary, and now serve at All Saints Attleboro.
The PYG presents us with a direct opportunity to support youth in our Diocese with funds, prayers, and commitment to the constant hope of enabling more young people to follow and deepen their walks with Jesus.
Our vestry has established a “Growing Young” fund in our budget to invest in developing the leadership and discipleship of young people in our church and diocese. We’ve committed $500 toward supporting the youth who are participating in the PYG. Would you consider adding you financial support as well? We’d love to reach and exceed $1000 to bless these young people and to encourage Craig’s excellent leadership with youth in our diocese.
If you’re led to give, please make a check to ASAC, and write “Provincial Youth Gathering” in the memo line. ASAC will write one check to the diocesan fundraising effort.
