The Ramsay Report

April 9, 2018

Sunday morning was chilly and sunny. There were 7 people at the 8:00 AM service and 43 in attendance at the 10:00 AM service. It was the Second Sunday Of Easter or “Low Sunday.” The Processional Hymn was, “Awake, Arise Lift Up Your Voice” and the Sequence Hymn was, “O Sons And Daughters Let Us Sing.”  The Gospel Reading was from John 20:19-31 (see attached). We learn from this passage of Jesus revealing himself to the disciples in a locked room once when Thomas is not there and he does not believe them when they tell him. Jesus then appears a second time and Jesus tells Thomas to touch him and questions him about his belief. We must believe in the Risen Christ without seeing him, but rather by what is told to us in the Gospel readings, that he is the Messiah, the Son of God! The Offertory Anthem was, “Alleluia, Alleluia, Hearts And Voices Heavenward Raise.”  The Communion Hymns were, “We Walk By Faith And Not By Sight” and “That Easter Day With Joy Was Bright.” The Recessional Hymn was, “Good Christians All, Rejoice And Sing.”


The Coffee Hour, hosted by Karrie Sheridan, was once again, full of chatter and laughter, as our parishioners caught up with each other. There were bagels, brownies, cake and cookies for all to enjoy with their coffee and tea. It was another fabulous Sunday at All Saints’!


EASTER THANKS-Many thanks again to the Acolytes, Altar Guild, Chalice Bearers, Choir, Lectors, Ushers and ALL who helped make our Easter celebration so glorious. Special thanks to Susan Byrne and all the creative kids and adults who made the Easter Garden in the hallway!  Thanks also for the “Rector’s Stress Relief” Easter Basket! It’s great!


GOOD GRIEF……OR SOME CATCHY TITLE-The Bereavement Group will resume on Tuesday, April 24th at 7:30 PM. It is never easy to cope with loss, be it a death, a change in relationship or any of a number of things. You need not face grief or bereavement alone. You are encouraged to take part in this informal group.
