Jesus Christ and make Him known.

Book-signing & Presentation by 
Dr. Kwan Kew Lai - THIS SUNDAY

In 2014, parishioner Dr. Kwan Kew Lai volunteered in Africa as an infectious disease specialist in the heart of the largest Ebola outbreak. Please join her after the 10 am service in the Bramhall Room for a presentation and book-signing of her recently released book about her experiences entitled, "Lest We Forget: A Doctor's Experience with Life and Death During the Ebola Outbreak." 

The cost of the book is $15.00. Please make checks out to All Saints' Church.

Bristol Lodge Volunteers Needed

Four Barrels filled with donations are on their way to Haiti!

This past week Cheryl and Paul packed four barrels with the donations collected throughout December. Two barrels were filled with backpacks, a two more with the underwear for boys and girls, puzzles, art supplies, pencils, toothpaste and toothbrushes, and clothes.

We want to thank Brad and Li Lehman who delivered the barrels to Eagle Shipping in Roxbury. They will see that the barrels get to Haiti safely. Once in Haiti, Lex and Renee Edme will arrange to pick up the barrels in Port au Prince and get them to the Mission of Hope in Grand Goave.

The cost of shipping the barrels was $400 and the cost of getting them from Port au Prince to Grand Goave is $150.00. We welcome donations to offset these expenses. Please make a check out to All Saints' Church and write, "outreach" on the memo line.

Thank you to everyone who donated during December. We were pleased to see that many of the families at the Global Montessori School also participated!
