The All Saints Blog

We have learned that some of you have not been getting the weekly All Saints blog post, including a special information update that was sent out this past Monday. Several of you have discovered that it has been coming into your spam folder. If you haven’t been receiving it, please check your spam folder. We’re trying to update our email list also.

Live Stream Services Only

Because of Governor Baker’s directive that groups of 25 or more should not be meeting, we are going to live stream services, not gathering in the church, until that directive changes. We will be doing Morning Prayer rather than a Eucharist service. Please find attached a short service bulletin for this Sunday. You may either print it out or follow along on your computer. Our 9:30 Sunday service will be available live on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/allsaintsamesburyma/videos/

Meeting Our New Rector, Fr. Justin Howard

We are excited to introduce to you our new rector and his family. We will be sending you a YouTube video next week of him and the family as a way of letting you meet them virtually until we can actually get to know them in person. Please keep a lookout for that link coming to your email box early next week.

Home Eucharist

Consecrated bread and wine will be available at the church for you take home to have with your family or a small group. You may come to the church between 11:00 and 1:00 on Sunday to pick up the elements along with a short service leaflet to guide you through the liturgy. Please email Mother Susie at susie.skillen@allsaintsamesbury.org to let me know when you are coming and the size of your group.

Faithfulness in Tithing

Another important way for us to support the work of All Saints is to continue with our tithes and offerings during this time when we are not meeting together on Sunday. It’s easy to make payments to the church online through the Website here: https://allsaintsamesbury.org/give/. Or you can mail your check to the church office at 6 Allens Ct., Amesbury, MA 01913. We recognize that some of you may be experiencing financial distress and are feeling unable to give as much as you normally would. Others of you may be able to give more at this time, which would help ensure that we do not fall behind. Please give as you are able. Thank you.
