Shaping the Students of Maryland
Our Diocese has spearheaded the Sutton Scholars Program, which teaches children to become confident, competent individuals by providing them with the essential gift of soft and life skills. All Saints' Parishioner Waymon Wright, featured on EpiscopalChurch.org, has worked closely with the Diocese of Maryland in their work of truth and reconciliation in our community. Read about Wright's work with the Sutton's Scholars, or engage with the Truth and Reconciliation efforts Sept. Newsletter, page 7.
The Search Process
After a year of work, prayer and discernment the Search Committee brought two highly qualified candidates to the Vestry for consideration. The Vestry has met and vetted each of those two candidates. After careful consideration, discussion and prayer, this past week the Vestry, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, has called the Rev. Adrien Dawson to be Rector of All Saints' and Rev. Dawson has accepted that call. Read Rev. Dawson's Letter
Working on our Spire
The Clustered Spires of Frederick are well-known, and All Saints' is caretaker to one of those majestic spires. And as any property-owner knows, it comes with repairs and maintenance! We're undertaking a significant project to restore the beauty, safety, and longevity of our cherished spire. See photos of the condition of the steeple.
The Annual Meeting
We had a fantastic Annual Meeting on Sunday morning, February 28. Election results can be found on our vestry page. Download the Annual Report. We will announce any changes to the Vestry Executive team after their March meeting.
