Have you noticed several individuals wearing
special lapel pins lately? They have made known their gift commitment to the "How Firm Our Foundation" capital campaign in support of the Bell Tower work and main Sanctuary project. Here are a few comments from our fellow parishioners about why they have given:
Kathie Deviny and Father Paul Collins:
We have firsthand experience with crumbling bell towers. In the '02 Seattle earthquake a cladding stone from the Trinity church tower fell through the ceiling at the back of the sanctuary, narrowly missing Paul, who was preparing for a baptism. Through a series of small and large miracles, the congregation was able to make the church strong, safe and accessible without sacrificing its beauty and holiness. We know it can be done and feel privileged to be able to help All Saints in the same way.
Ken Jewesson and Francie:
We love the people of All Saints, all the fine activities, the church itself and all the facilities, and the Outreach that helps others. It's very important to make sure the Sanctuary is here for our children and our children's children. It would be a disaster if it was
damaged. We have to ensure the church will be here.
Charley Cairns and Bonnie:
As our Sanctuary approaches its 120th birthday in a few years, we know it needs significant structural work. It's important to do the work now and we hope that everyone will participate and recognize the importance of it!
