Christmas Happenings!

Christmas Party

FRIDAY Dec 14 7:30

We are happy to announce the 20s30s will once again return to the rectory for a Christmas gathering.  It will feature some warm drinks and a delicious festive menu prepared by Jonathan and Nate.  Also, carols by the fire and reunions galore.

If you are new this year, this event is one of the longest standing traditions for the 20s30s so a lot of the institutional folks come out of the woodwork.

If you haven’t been involved as much this year, we’d love to have you come out and join us!  See what we’ve been up to!

Homeboy Industries

You’ve seen them on the patio selling bread.  What’s that all about?  We’re reading Tattoos on the Heart by Father Greg Boyle.

by Father Greg Boyle.  Father Greg is the founder of Homeboy Industries.  It is a program to get gang members out of gangs and into jobs.  It started with a bakery.  You may have seen them selling bread on the patio.  That’s why.
Tattoos on the Heart is a collection of stories from Father Greg about his work with gang members as they transition out of gang life and into “normal.”
The stories are touching, funny, tragic, and inspirational.  It’s also an easy read.  Perfect for your travel or down time during holidays.
Get yourself a copy at the church bookstore or online.
Homeboy industries has grown into a thriving collection of businesses including the bakery, a silk screen print shop, and a restaurant and catering business.
We plan to have our meeting at Homeboy Cafe.  So you get to read, eat, and see the work in action.  It’s fun. It’s full circle.
We’ll meet this month and again in January.
Saturday December 1st 11am
Homeboy Bakery
130 Bruno Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Project Angel Tree
You’ll see the angels on one of the tables on the patio.  This is a program that buys gifts for prisoner’s children at Christmas time.  It is a really moving experience.  I bought a dress shirt for a teen last year.  He wanted a nice shirt to wear to job interviews.  It did not expect it to be as rewarding as I found it to be.  This year I have been helping more by calling the families to find out what the children might want.  I highly recommend picking up an angel and going shopping for someone you’ll never meet. But never the less whose life you can impact greatly this holiday season.

Happy Advent!

Advent is the season of anticipation leading up to Christmas.  The church has lots of celebrations throughout the season.  We hope to see you as much as possible it would make our holiday a happy one!

An Evening with Lisa Napoli

As you may have seen, the Year of Compassion team is sponsoring an evening  with Lisa Napoli, currently a culture reporter for KCRW.  In 2007 Lisa took advantage of an opportunity to travel to Bhutan to assist in the growth of a relatively new, youth-based radio station that was set up to help the transition for Bhutan from a monarchy to a democracy.  She chronicles her trips to Bhutan and her personal growth in her book Radio Shangri-La: What I Discovered on my Accidental Journey to the Happiest Kingdom on Earth, which is a wonderful read, (and which is now out in paperback.)
Lisa will speak about these experiences at All Saints this Monday evening, May 14.  The evening will begin at 7:00pm in the Upper Parish Hall with a Bhutanese style meal.
Lisa is an engaging speaker, full of warmth and wit, and I hope you will come and bring a friend.  You can register at www.allsaintsbh.org/register.

                                    

With hopes of seeing you on Monday,

Let’s Go Vegan!

‎40 DAYS OF VEGAN (for LENT) I’m going for it. Who’s in? Joshua Paget hooked me up with Vegan books so I don’t get emaciated & pass out. Let’s do this… We can blog about the journey, support one another, meet up at vegan restaurants, & reflect on its effect upon our lives spiritually. Wait…Booze is vegan, right?
