Lenten Appeal

Our Lenten Appeal for this year will be to support Fr. Scott Greene and the church of St. Peter the Apostle Anglican in Kingsport, TN, a parish in our diocese. As many of you know, the Lenten Appeal gives you the opportunity for alms giving during this season. Something as simple as a $1 a day, or more as you are able, will bless Fr. Greene.

Fr. Greene is a young priest in the APA, a graduate of the Nashotah House Seminary, and being shepherded by the APA Board of Examining Chaplains and Fr. Wade Miller. He is caring for St. Peter the Apostle parish, which is smaller and cannot meet all of his financial needs at this point. He and his wife, Maryl, have two young daughters.

Please write "Lenten Appeal" on the memo line of your check to designate the funds for Fr. Scott Greene.

Saints Bio: Forty Holy Martyrs
 

In the year 320, Constantine was Emperor of the West and Licinius of the East. Licinius, under pressure from Constantine, had agreed to legalize Christianity in his territory, and the two made an alliance cemented by the marriage of Licinius to Constantia the sister of Constantine; but then Licinius broke the alliance and made a new attempt to suppress Christianity. He ordered his soldiers to repudiate it on pain of death. In what was called the “Thundering Legion,” stationed near Sebaste in Armenia (Turkey), forty soldiers refused, and when promises, threats, and beatings failed to shake them, they were stripped naked one evening and herded onto the middle of a frozen lake, and told, “You may come ashore when you are ready to deny your faith.” To tempt them, fires were built on shore, with warm baths, blankets, clothing, and hot food and drink close by. As night deepened, thirty-nine men stood firm, while one broke and ran to the shore. However, one of the soldiers standing guard on shore was so moved by the steadfastness of the Christians that he stripped off his clothes and ran out to join them. They welcomed him into their company, and so the number of the martyrs remained at forty, and by morning, all were dead of exposure. One source says that the few in whom a little life remained were stabbed to death at dawn.

Weekend Pew Reservations

Our four Saturday/Sunday Masses are near capacity each weekend. It is wonderful to have so many parishioners worshipping in person -- and via the livestream, too! Please email the church office if you plan to not attend Mass one weekend due to travels, sickness, etc. Our Masses are often at capacity and we want to have space for welcoming visitors as well! 

If you have not read All Saints' guidelines for returning to Mass, please do so before attending a Mass.
