Landscape Workdays Duncan Hobbs, Ministry Head
Seasonal workdays include parishioners of all ages in tending our grounds, including the labyrinth. That includes pruning, planting, sweeping, mulching, weeding, drainage projects, and more.
A winding path from edge to center and back again, the labyrinth is full of twists and turns. We do not control our route. There is just one way in and out. Take your time: ways of praying the labyrinth are unlimited:
Some people focus on release of distraction and fear on the inward path, opening the heart and quieting the mind.
Centered, they pray, receiving God's grace.
On the outward path they are returning free of all that they have released and filled with what has been.
Some people say a prayer or a piece of scripture as they walk. Stop when you are ready to stop. Come back again and again.

Memorial Hall Modernization Gretchen Melburg, Ministry Head
Memorial Hall is being revitalized! New custom doors were installed in 2017. A beautiful new pergola, luxury vinyl tile flooring, new lighting, and ceiling, and improved folding chair storage, all were added in 2018. Thanks, in part, to the proceeds of Giving Tuesday, work will soon begin on landscaping and sidewalk access from Memorial Hall to our lawn area, Eaton Hall, and other All Saints' meeting rooms.
Forrest Goehring Construction company installed the custom Sierra Pacific aluminum clad doors. A very special thanks to Kendall Pierson and Sierra Pacific for sponsoring these beautiful custom doors.
