Life at All Saints Parish…
It’s been an interesting few weeks.
Thunder, lightning, tornadoes…
I want to thank Roy Ackerman and his friend Dan! Some of you saw Dan flying his drone over the parish buildings on both campuses last weekend. Good news…no damage found!
In the end of February, three officers from the Evansville Police Department came to the St. Anthony campus to do a Threat Assessment with us of the parish grounds. They left us with several suggestions. You’ll be seeing some changes in the landscaping around the campus this spring, exit signs in St. Anthony Church…St. Joseph Church already has them, and we will be numbering the doors. All of this to make the work of emergency responders easier if they ever need to come to the campuses.
They also told us about a Situational Awareness Class that the EPD offers. This class helps participants recognize the body language that we encounter that makes us feel threatened or makes us aware of a possible threatening situation. We will be working with them to schedule this class for us here at All Saints.
This weekend, March 18 & 19, is the kickoff of our annual stewardship campaign. You will have the opportunity to once again look at which ministries you are involved in and which ones you want to become involved in. It takes all of us to keep All Saints Parish vibrant and sustainable. Please consider your talents and gifts and pray with the Holy Spirit to see which ministries you are being called to participate in.
We’ll see everyone at Fr. Jay’s Retirement Open House on Sunday from noon – 2 pm at the gym on the St. Anthony Campus. It will be a great celebration of Fr. Jay’s dedication to his ministry as a priest and pastor at All Saints and in the diocese. ~ Sharon Vogler, PLC
