    November 2017
    Monthly Ministry Theme:


    November 5 "Creating One Another"
    Two Services at 9:30 and 11:15 AM
    Worship Leader:  Reverend Carolyn Patierno

    All Souls ordained me on November 4, 2001.  The reading was by Reverend Jack Mendelsohn who reflected on the mystery that ministers and congregations create one another.  That may well include our mutual sense of call.  I’ll reflect on the ways that my ministry has been created by All Souls – and likely the ways All Souls has been created by my personal sense of call and ministry. 

    Good Neighbor Offering: Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism.


    November 12 "Calling: How do you know? And how do you answer?"
    Two Services at 9:30 and 11:15 AM
    Worship Leader:  Reverend Caitlin O'Brien

    For this month’s worship theme, I will be talking to various people who answered a call to action in their life.  Together, we’ll take a look at what a calling sounds like, what it means to be ready for it even before it’s heard, and what it looks like to answer.

Quiet Time with Singing Bowls
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
The tones produced by Himalayan singing bowls can be a unique entry into a place of calm, peace, healing, and harmony. .
If you have never heard several singing bowls played together, you have never really heard singing bowls.

Please consider joining John Irwin, who has been playing singing bowls for over three years, each Tuesday evening at All Souls from 7 to 8:30 p.m. for a period of peace and relaxation.

All are welcome.


Craft Circle
7:00 PM
We are an inclusive social group of adults interested in crafts. We gather with each other on Wednesday evenings to work on our own current personal projects. Whatever the skill: knit, crochet, needlepoint, zentangle, sewing, quilting, beadwork, cross-stitch, scrapbooking, we are willing to teach what we know to others.

Childcare is not provided. Come and be with us as your schedule permits: once a week or once a month, whatever works for you.
