Last Sunday, All Saints parish came together as a Family for a wonderful afternoon of fellowship and sharing. It was a powerful witness of fellowship, of love and most of all our Church came together to socialize and share in a good meal.
I wish to take this opportunity to offer my congratulations and to say thank you to the many individuals and organizations who helped to make this day a great success. As in all things, to be successful, it takes everyone coming together and working together for the good of the Parish. That is what took place this weekend.
It took the Coordination of our Pastoral Council working with the various organizations of All Saints Parish, All Saints Altar Society, Men of Vision, Knights and Ladies of Peter Claver. It also took various individuals who helped to prepare and cook the meal, who made financial donations, or donated the food, those who assisted by serving the food, and those who assisted with the set-up and the clean-up, Thank you. It took all of this to make this day a powerful success. It also took all those who came out to participate in the day; your presence helped to make the day such a wonderful success.
The word that I have received from various individuals is that everyone who attended enjoyed the opportunity to come together and meet with other parishioners and just enjoy their company. It was even more enjoyable watching our youth come together and enjoying each other’s company as they went off to play their own game.Thank you to everyone, for your participation and presence. Perhaps we can make this an annual activity for the parish in the future. After all, God provided us with great weather, so perhaps October might be the month for our next “Family Get Together.” What do you think?

PRAYER FOR FAMILIES
We bless your name, O Lord,
For sending your own incarnate Son,
To become part of a family,
So that, as he lived its life,
He would experience its worries and its joys.
We ask you Lord,
To protect and watch over this family,
So that in the strength of your grace
It members may enjoy prosperity,
Possess the priceless gift of your peace,
And, as the Church alive in the home,
Bear witness in this world to your glory.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
