Weeklings, resurrected

Isaac James is accepting poems and artwork on a rolling basis from now until June 1st at which point he will begin to organize a collection of poetry and art from all previous editions of the Weeklings. If you have any questions about artwork or have revisions to your poems please do not hesitate to contact him. In order for this collection to be successful, Isaac would appreciate as much artwork as possible so send as much as you can. Both color and grayscale artwork of all mediums (including photography) is welcome. For questions about 3d artwork, please contact Isaac for specifics. More information will follow shortly. In the meantime however, good creating!
Lenten Ember Days

The Ember Days (BCP pg. 260), which date back to the early centuries of the faith, are days of fasting at the change of the season. The Lenten Ember Days fall this week (which are set for the first week of Lent). They are a time to thank God for the seasons, begin to prepare the crops and gardens, and to petition Him with our prayers (BCP pg. 39-40 & 51). We remember our clergy (BCP pg. 32) and pray for the increase of ministers especially on Ember Days. It is traditionally a time for ordinations.

Music for Lent I

Music Director Ken Myers created a new post at Cantica sacra featuring a recording made by the choir of the Anglican chant setting of Psalm 51 which we’ll be singing throughout Lent. It’s on this page. The page also has a link to a pdf of the text and music.

Also, Ken posted the propers for this Sunday and the Psalms for the Daily Office for the coming week here. This page also includes a recording of a motet based on the Lent I Offertory.
Christ in the Wilderness - Briton Riviere, 1898

Sermons for Lent I

Both sermons are posted to our website this week! Audio and text for Fr. Glenn's sermon can be found here, and Fr. Sean's here.

The process for signing up for Covid-19 vaccine has been quite confusing and many changes have occurred in the last few weeks. Here is the latest information from the Blue Ridge Health District if you need it.

Saints Bio: St. Matthias

There is no mention of a Matthias among the lists of disciples or followers of Jesus in the three synoptic Gospels, but according to Acts, he had been with Jesus from his Baptism by John until his Ascension. In the days following, Peter proposed that the assembled disciples, who numbered about one hundred and twenty, nominate two men to replace Judas. They chose Joseph call Barsabas (whose surname was Justus) and Matthias. Then they prayed, “Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all [men], shew whether of these two thou hast chosen, That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.” Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was numbered with the eleven apostles. Matthias was present with the other apostles at Pentecost. No further information about Matthias is to be found in the New Testament. Even his name is variable: the Syriac version of Eusebius calls him throughout not Matthias but “Tolmai”, not to be confused with Bartholomew (which means Son of Tolmai), who was one of the twelve original Apostles; Clement of Alexandria says some identified him with Zacchaeus while others identify him with Barnabas or Nathanael in the Gospel of John. The tradition of the Greeks says that St. Matthias planted the faith about Cappadocia and on the coasts of the Caspian Sea, residing chiefly near the port named Issus.

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.
