Happy New Year to all our All Saints family. We look forward to seeing you back at services and activities at All Saints. We have ahead of us another year of fun and growing together.
Here is a thought of the day from Father Greg, founder of homeboy ministries.
I thought it apropos for starting a new year:
Whatever you are looking forward to this year, personal goals, career goals, we hope you include us in your practice!
Happy New Year!
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?

We are beginning with a slew of activities, thought by members of the group, based on activities we are already doing in our lives.
We are opening ourselves up to our communities and the communities around us.
Planned recurring activities:
Vegan Dining with Christian: Try new vegan restaurant every thursday. But Christian challenges you to go full-on vegan for lent.
Small Talk, Big Ideas – meet with your parish priests to discuss books, movies, music, galleries, whatever! It’s casual.
A Night at the Movies – stop not having seen all those movies that get awards: make a resolution to see more movies.
Stairs Challenge – come out to the stairs on saturdays and train for the Los Angeles Stair Climb
Small Group – discuss a recent read with small group at someone’s home.
Gallery of the Month – visit our city’s ever-interesting range of galleries.
Inter-Faith Field Trips – We’ll visit other church’s services.
