We celebrated All Saints' Sunday with a parish family party following the late service in Woodsby Hall. This was one of the biggest highlights of the year and a great way to kick off the holiday season. The Youth Ensemble sang with the Adult Choir as part of the 10:50 a.m. service. It is one of our holy and festive days in our church year. We also had a special luncheon and enjoyed many families that came to join us for food and fellowship.

When you step into All Saints’ Episcopal Church on a Youth Sunday you will be greeted by a young smiling student dressed as one of our stewards (or ushers). You will then sit down in a pew and listen to the sweet voices of our middle and high school students read the lectionary scripture readings. You will hear the amazing voices of our Youth Ensemble sing throughout the service. You watch the Youth Stewards pass the offering plate and greet you to come to the Lord’s table for Holy Communion. This is a normal Youth Service; led mostly by the youth within our church which occurs three Sundays throughout the year.
Our first Restore Healing Service was held on Thursday, September 19th from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Rev. Kathy Hulin presided over the service and welcomed Fr. Paul Head from St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Winter Haven to lead in musical worship.
