Cursillo

“Make a friend, be a friend, and bring a friend to Christ” is the motto of Cursillo. Those who have attended a Cursillo weekend make a commitment to follow Christ and serve Christ in others. All Saints’ has a long history as on of the first parishes in this diocese to embrace the Cursillo movement. Retreat weekends are held at Canterbury Retreat Center.

The Flower Guild provides lovely arrangements on a monthly team rotation, sponsored by parishioners as a memorial or thanksgiving to beautify our sacred space on Sunday mornings. Following our service, flowers are delivered each Sunday to our home or hospital bound parishioners. Both ministries are needed and a blessing to others, whether your gift is arrangements or delivery.

Lay Eucharist Visitors

Lay Eucharist Visitors have the unique privilege to bring the sacrament from our Sunday Eucharist and to pray with parishioners who are either home or hospital bound.
