Attention Acolytes & Parents: National Acolyte Festival Trip
Sign-up for National Acolyte Festival Trip
Time to sign-up for an All Saints' acolyte tradition: our annual trip to the National Acolyte Festival in Washington, DC. All active acolytes are invited to consider going. Deadline to sign-up is July 1, 2019. This trip represents a wonderful opportunity for our acolytes to participate in a service at the National Cathedral along with hundreds of acolytes from many different states. All Saints' is the only Episcopal Church in Texas that consistently sends acolytes to this festival, and we are usually the acolytes who travel the greatest distance to attend -- a reflection on the commitment of the parents of All Saints' acolytes to this youth ministry.
Fundraisers cover trip costs (airfare, hotel, ground transportation, and meals) and each participating acolyte and one parent are required to volunteer at all the fundraisers.
When and where is National Acolyte Festival?
October 12, 2019, at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. We travel on Thursday, October 10th, and return on Sunday October 13th, to allow time for sightseeing.
