holy week

holyweek

It is HOLY WEEK, plan to walk the way of Jesus. 

Holy Wednesday: Noon, simple service of Holy Eucharist.

Maundy Thursday: Service remembering the Last Supper, ending with stripping the altar in silence.

Good Friday:
The church will be open for silent personal prayer the traditional time is when Jesus hung on the cross between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m.

We gather for worship together with Our Lady of Mercy at 8 p.m. with the Good Friday Liturgy.

Remember, without Good Friday there would be no Easter.

Easter Vigil: At 8 p.m. we light the Paschal Fire and begin our celebration of  the Resurrection with this most historic of all Easter services, where we hear the beautiful "Exsultet" and dramatic scripture readings which led to this day. 

Easter Day: The return of "Alleluia" and celebration of new life with the risen Jesus!
(This service is followed by an egg hunt)

Easter Monday: Special Ecumenical Service on this rare year where all branches of Christianity, East and West, share the same dates for Celebration – 8 p.m. in Crypte de l'Eglise Royal-Sainte Marie, Place de la Reine, 1030 Schaerbeek.

outreach

Outreach will be delivering your gifts to residents of St James Home (ave. Wolfers 9, La Hulpe) at 3:30 p.m. on Friday. If you would like to help with sharing the gifts with the residents who have no family or visitors, please meet us there at that time.

a special parish meeting

A special Parish Meeting of All Saints' Church will take place on Sunday, 27 April, at 12:30 p.m. for the purpose of voting on changes to the All Saints' Bylaws / Constitution as required by the Canons Committee of the Convocation.

The changes are as follows:

1) With regard to Paragraph 2.2 (Electoral Roll/Qualifications), we would prefer a reference to Can. I.17 of the National Canons. That would mean that adult members of TEC whose Baptism is duly recorded in the Parish Register of All Saints' (and who make application as provided in lit. c if this is regarded as necessary) are entitled to voice and vote at Annual and Special Parish Meetings.

2) With regard to Paragraph 11 (Rector and Assistant Ministers), specify that these need the Bishop's approval to assume their office (canon I.15). The present text ("after consultation with the Bishop") might be construed as meaning that the Bishop must be given opportunity to voice his opinion concerning the candidate, not that his consent is necessary.

The Bylaws/Constitution of All Saints' states that when a Special Meeting is called, it can only deal with the business announced in the notice for the meeting, so this should not be a long meeting, but it is necessary.

what we believe:

As Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and we believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Episcopal Church has members in the United States, as well as in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Haiti, Honduras, Micronesia, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, Venezuela, and the Virgin Islands.

We strive to love our neighbors as ourselves and respect the dignity of every person.

The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, and traces its heritage to the beginnings of Christianity.

Our liturgy retains ancient structure and traditions and is celebrated in many languages.

Both men and women, including those who are married, are eligible for ordination as deacons, priests and bishops.

We believe in amendment of life, the forgiveness of sin, and life everlasting.

Lay people exercise a vital role in the governance and ministry of our church.

Holy Communion may be received by all baptized Christians, not only members of the Episcopal Church.

We uphold the Bible and worship with the Book of Common Prayer.

We affirm that committed relationships are lifelong and monogamous. Episcopalians also recognize that there is grace after divorce and do not deny the sacraments to those who have been divorced.

We affirm that issues such as birth control are matters of personal informed conscience.

We celebrate our unity in Christ while honoring our differences, always putting the work of love before uniformity of opinion.

All are welcome to find a spiritual home in the Episcopal Church.
