All Saints Newsletters

All Saints publishes two newsletters regularly, which keep members and visitors informed about what is going on. 

  • Grace Notes is a weekly short email newsletter (see below), focusing on what is happening in the upcoming few weeks.  3-4 pages.
  • Calling All Saints is a periodic longer news publication, distributed by email and by postal mail, with longer pieces that cover recent milestones and events, and more detail on the major upcoming events of the season. 8-16 pages. Back issues are online in the Document Archive

Please download a sample issue of these newsletters to see what we're up to!

In addition, we have several brochures that describe our church, our community ministries, our volunteer opportunities, and the ways people can help the church.

If you would like to be put on the mailing list for our newsletters, please contact us.

SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA CHAMBER CHOIR –
Saturday, April 16, 8pm
STARLIT CIRCUMSTANCES – Music for Voices, Electronics and Kelp
From the SFBACC website: “We will sing, hum, whisper, speak, and exclaim works by some of the most famous modern and contemporary composers, including an excerpt from Meredith Monk’s opera “Atlas”, and an early work by Arvo Pärt, “Solfeggio”, along with other works by American, Scandinavian, and Baltic composers.  We’ll strive to give you an ear-opening experience with works by Robert Ashley, Ernst Toch, John Cage, and others.  The John Cage piece (“ear for EAR”) is not what you might expect—it’s a simple, beautiful, and haunting call & response chant.
The centerpiece of the spring program will be “Nereocystis III”, a new piece for mixed voices, kelp horn, and electronics that the choir has commissioned from Bay Area composer Krystyna Bobrowski.   Krys is a Bay Area professor of music at the College of San Mateo, performer on French Horn and instruments she designs and builds (such as the Gliss Glass and Kelp Horn), improviser with Vorticella and other Bay Area musicians, composer, and sound artist.”
Tickets are available at:   http://starlit-paloalto.bpt.me or at the door. $15 general admission, or $10 for seniors and students.
