+ St. Andrew is known as the “First Called” in the Eastern Orthodox Church. He was a disciple of John the Baptist and based upon the Baptist’s testimony concerning Jesus he and John the Evangelist left the Baptist and began following Jesus. Andrew instantly recognized Jesus as the Messiah and introduced him to his brother Simon Peter. According to tradition Andrew founded the See of Byzantium (Constantinople). Andrew was crucified in Patras of Achaea on a cross called Crux decussata which is an X-shaped cross, now commonly known as Saint Andrew’s Cross. Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland, Russia, Greece, Sicily, fishermen, rope-makers and, for some mysterious reason, golfers!
+ All Saints’ Men’s Group will meet November 27, 7:00 a.m. in the undercroft.
+ Don’t forget the Monday Morning Bible Study that meets in the Undercroft at 10:30 a.m. Priscilla King is leading a study of the Epistle to the Hebrews.
+ Wednesday Agape & Christian Education is Wednesday, November 28. We have regular classes for the nursery and the children, as well as adult education. Fr. Glenn is teaching The Revelation of St. John the Divine at the Wednesday agape. We are especially looking at how the imagery used by John enabled the first Christians to confront the political idolatries in a world dominated by Roman power and ideology. The Revelation calls Christians to eschew those who would make themselves God’s rivals for the hearts and minds of people all over the world.
+Also remember to RSVP Fr. Dan Malcolm who, along with his team is preparing dinner! The agape dinner begins at 5:45 p.m. Child and adult education classes begin at 6:30 p.m. and are over at 7:15 p.m. [email protected]
+ All Saints parishioner may obtain a Mass card from the Church office. A Mass card is a greeting card given to someone to inform him or her that a deceased loved one or friend was remembered and prayed for at a weekly Mass. It is a specifically Christian way to express one’s love. Call Julie McDermott at the Church office (434-979-2842) and she will help you fill out the form. The celebrant will sign the card and we will mail it from the Church to the family of the loved one.
+ Daily Mass is celebrated at 12:15 p.m. You and your family members are all remembered by name at the Altar of God every week. Please take an All Saints parish prayer list home with you & remember your fellow parishioners in your prayers!
