Palm Sunday live stream at 10:00 AM: This Sunday there will be a live stream service for the whole diocese broadcast from Redeemer Anglican Church in Franklin, MA, with Bishop Andrew preaching. The link can be found on our All Saints website, or go directly to our Facebook page. Or use the link here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/allsaintsamesburyma/videos/?ref=page_internal
ADNE Online Holy Week Resources: Our diocese has provided some wonderful resources to help us walk through Holy Week together. There are guides for daily prayer, online daily office, a home Maundy Thursday liturgy and a Good Friday Stations of the Cross. http://www.ad-ne.org/holy-week/ A suggestion would be, as you look over what is available, put a note in your calendar to remind you to come back to those resources during the week.
Easter Sunday service with Eucharist at 10:00 AM: Easter morning there will be a similar diocese wide service led by Bp. Andrew. So that all who would like may take communion on Easter, we will be distributing the consecrated elements ahead of time for you to take home. Then all will partake at the same time during the service. So how can we do this hygienically? Next week we will consecrate pre-packaged communion bread and juice. They will be available on a table for you to pick up at the church on Thursday evening 5:00- 6:00 PM, Friday evening 5:00-6:00 PM and Saturday from noon to 1:00. We’ll have the side door by the parking lot open for you to come in and take them without touching the door handles. If there are some who are unable to come to pick them up, a suggestion might be to have a representative from your community group or a friend pick up yours and bring them to you. Let’s be aware of those who may need help.
