We are excited to announce a new initiative of All for One Ministries and The Branch Gathering Place + Coffee House: Pastor Sabbatical Grants!
We recognize the vital role that pastors play in shepherding their congregations and the often demanding nature of their responsibilities. In alignment with our commitment to supporting pastoral wellness and excellence in ministry, we are pleased to offer two Pastor Sabbatical Trips this year. These sabbaticals are designed to provide pastors with a restorative and inspirational experience, allowing them the opportunity to rest, reflect, and renew their spiritual and emotional reserves.
Recipients will receive a sabbatical trip to a destination of their choice. This year, we will be offering two $500 grants. During the sabbatical, pastors must have the opportunity to engage in activities that promote rest, relaxation, spiritual renewal, and personal reflection.
If you would like to nominate a pastor in our community whom you feel is especially deserving of this honor, you can do so on the All for One Ministries website at a41ministry.org/pastor-grants! Nominations are due March 31, 2024!
You are loved! ... See MoreSee Less

Rite of Election and Enrollment of Names
(RCIA 119) At this step, on the basis of the testimony of godparents and catechists and the of the catechumens’ reaffirmation of their intention, the Church judges their state of readiness and decides on their advancement toward the sacraments of initiation. Thus the Church makes its “election,” that is, the choice and admission of those catechumens who have the dispositions that make them fit to take part, at the next major celebration, in the sacraments of initiation.
This step is called election because the acceptance made by the Church is founded on the election by God, in whose name the Church acts. The step is also called the enrollment of names because as a pledge of fidelity the candidates inscribe their names in the book that lists those who have been chosen for initiation. ...
