From Susan McCardell & Julie Holly, Stephen Leaders
May the Light of Compassion Shine Through Us

From Joyce Rupp’s Prayers of Boundless Compassion (2018):

The Body of Compassion

I pray to be the face of compassion—
that those who come within my view
find a cordial, kindly reception
written upon my facial landscape.
I pray to be the ears of compassion—
that those who come filled with distress
will experience my attentive presence,
ready to listen without distraction.
I pray to be the eyes of compassion—
that those who lack society’s support
will receive my nonjudgmental gaze,
a look of unbiased, heartfelt welcome.
I pray to be the shoulders of compassion—
that those who come laden with burdens
will be able to set things down for a while,
and have the load lightened when they leave.
I pray to be the heart of compassion—
that those who feel overwhelmed with suffering
will sense my empathic response,
one that forgoes a desire to fix the hurt.
I pray to be the mouth of compassion—
that those whose voice is not heard
will be empowered and supported
by my determined, vocal stand for justice.

I pray to be the hands of compassion—
that those whose life could benefit
from my presence and my actions
will be assisted by the humble offering.
I pray to be the feet of compassion—
that those who long for companionship
will see that I walk beside them,
joined in the strength of a common humanity.

I pray that the Light of compassion shining in my soul
will recognize and receive the Light shining in others,
that together we will care for creation with respect and
have gratitude for all that exists.
All Saints Events
Summer Hours
Reminder: the parish office is now on summer hours. From now through Labor Day, the office will be open 9 am-12 pm Monday-Friday .
Parish Picnic - Jun. 2
Please join us after the 10am service on  Sunday, June 2 for our annual parish picnic! Weather permitting, we'll gather on the north lawn (outside the Washington St. entrance). The rain location will be Kemper Hall. Hot dogs will be provided; please sign up on the bulletin board in the hallway (or contact the office ) to bring food for the potluck.
SCRIP
Don't forget that you can help All Saints by purchasing SCRIP cards for Father's Day or for your summer shopping! Every time you use a SCRIP card to shop at your favorite businesses, a percentage of the cost is donated to All Saints. Contact Suzanne Fischer for more information.
Servers' Schedule
It's time to start thinking about the schedule for July-August-September. If you're a server, please contact the office by Monday, June 10 with any dates that you're unavailable during those months.

If you're interested in becoming a server, now is the perfect time! Please contact the office if you're interested in any of the following ministries:

Acolyte - serve at the altar
Crucifer - carry the cross at the head of the procession
Chalice Bearer - distribute wine at Communion
Lector - read the lessons of the day
Usher - pass the offering plate and guide people up to Communion
Greeter - welcome people as they arrive for the 10 am service
Counter - count and record the offering after the 10 am service
Diocesan & Community Events
Two Bishops at the Ballpark - June 1
The Episcopal Diocese of Fond du Lac will be hosting a small delegation from our Companion Diocese of Masvingo, Zimbabwe May 30-June 6! Bishop Godfrey, his wife Albertina, and Friar Fungayi will be visiting a number of places during their stay. One activity that all members of the diocese are welcome to join is at the Timber Rattlers game on Saturday, June 1. For more information and to purchase tickets, CLICK HERE !
Opportunities to Serve
Grass Cutting & Lawn Care
Thank you to all who helped with our lawn care in 2018. Like last year, we will be doing a rotation of volunteers (much like we do with lay servers for worship services) to take care of those chores. We will again have a weekly rotation to include mowing the lawn and using the weed eater. This will be no more than 1 to 1 1/2 hours of time. Our property is large but our lawn isn't. I will make sure that we have all of the equipment in good working order and that there is fuel for both lawn mower and weed trimmer.
 
Please contact the church office or me ( Chris Laswell ) directly if you would be interested in helping with this project. As always, more hands make less work for all. Thank you, in advance, for your help and consideration.
 
Blessings,
Chris Laswell - Jr. Warden
Vestry Clerk
All Saints is still in need of a new Clerk of the Vestry. This is a volunteer position that requires attending all vestry meetings, which are usually held after the 10am service on the 3rd Sunday of the month, and taking minutes which are later distributed to the vestry. The clerk does not vote on vestry decisions. If you'd like to serve in this role, please contact  Senior Warden Rob Anderson .
