Important Staff changes for 2022: Bud Proctor has announced his retirement as our verger and property manager effective later in the spring. Don’t worry, he isn’t going anywhere! He hopes for more free time to spend with family and to be a “regular” worshipper.

Bud has faithfully carried out a wide variety of duties at All Saints, from organizing bread bakers to working with contractors repairing our buildings. We have plenty of time to plan an appropriate celebration of his service to All Saints, but in the meantime, we are asking for your help in finding a part-time property manager to oversee our five buildings and all that entails. If you know of someone who might be interested and who lives locally, preferably, please have them contact the parish office.

Confirmation is coming to All Saints! On May 14 at 10:00 a.m., Bishop Hughes will celebrate the rites of Confirmation, Reaffirmation, and Reception at All Saints, and we hope to have some of our members be a part of that (see “From the Rector” for more). If you are 8th grade or above (adults included) and want to explore these rites, please contact the Parish Office to register your interest (office@allsaintshoboken.com). The deadline is February 1!

Baptism date added: Since COVID prevented some of our families from having their children baptized last week, we have added an additional date between now and the Easter Vigil. We will now offer the sacrament of baptism on Sunday, February 13, 2021. If you are interested in baptism for yourself or your child on that or another date, please be in touch with the parish office.
