Wanamaker organist Peter Richard Conte
will bring a thrill for the ears September 21
Peter Richard Conte, Grand Court
Organist of the world-famous Wanamaker
Organ at the Macy’s store at Center City in
Philadelphia, will present an organ recital at
All Saints’ Episcopal Church at 7:30 p.m. on
Friday, Sept. 21. The program is free and will
be followed by a reception for all.
Mr. Conte performs concerts twice daily,
six days each week, on the Wanamaker
Organ, the largest fully-functional musical
instrument in the world. He has also recently
been named Principal Organist of Longwood
Gardens, Kennett Square, PA, where he
performs on the magnificent 10,000-pipe
Aeolian organ.
This recital is a departure from the typical
organ recital. Known for his transcriptions
and performance of major orchestral works,
Mr. Conte will present an aurally thrilling
program that opens with Leonard Bernstein’s
“Overture to Candide” and closes with the
stirring and expansive “Finlandia” by Jean
In between, he will offer works by Alexandre
Guilmant, Johann Sebastian Bach, Fritz
Kreisler, Louis Vierne, Joseph Reinberger and
Robert Elmore.
Mr. Conte is highly regarded as a
skillful performer and arranger of organ
transcriptions. He has been featured several
times on National Public Radio and on ABC
television’s “Good Morning America” and
“World News Tonight.” He has two radio
shows: “The Wanamaker Organ Hour”,
Do You Know
Your Number?
Peter Richard Conte
which airs on the first Sunday of each month,
at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern), and can be heard
on WRTI.org; on each Wednesday evening
at 7:00 p.m., his Grand Court concert is
streamed live on YesterdayUSA.com.
He has performed with the Philadelphia
Orchestra, Peter Nero and the Philly Pops,
and with the Pacific, Delaware, Canton and
Allentown Symphonies. In September 2008,
Peter was soloist for an historic collaboration
of the Philadelphia Orchestra and the
Wanamaker Organ, performing Jongen’s
Symphonie Concertante in the Wanamaker
Grand Court.
Mr. Conte also serves as Choirmaster
and Organist of St. Clement’s Church,
Philadelphia, where he directs a professional
choir in music of the Anglo-Catholic
tradition. He is also an Adjunct Assistant
Professor of Organ at Rider University’s
Westminster Choir College, Princeton, NJ,
where he teaches Organ Improvisation.

Adult Forum: Six-Week Series,
“Walking On Water,” Begins Sept. 23
Dear All Saints’ Parishioners,
On Sunday, Sept. 23, Fr. Jambor will launch a six-week
series called “Walking On Water.”
What a wonderful sabbatical Pat and I
had this summer! Thank you so much for
letting us have this time away. In every
sense, it was a trip of a lifetime! We
travelled extensively (over 14 countries as I
recall), did a lot of reading (over 60 books
for me), walked a lot, ate even more, rested,
reflected, and just recharged the batteries.
This time away would not have been possible without the very
talented people who worked extra hard while I was away. In
particular, a great, big thanks goes to Dr. Trace Worrell, our
Senior Warden, who held the executive reins so ably, and to
Fr. David Madison who was the acting Priest-in-Charge. Many
thanks go to Mthr. Melanie Barbarito who took on a whole lot
of extra pastoral responsibility while I was away, and to the fine
staff of our parish who, as always, worked tirelessly to make
sure all went well at All Saints’. They are Lynne Waltman,
Rick Grimes, Vickie Merrill, Lisa Nelms, Sanda Warren, Karla
Uecker, Paul Aultman, Sean Meagher, and Dottie McBride.
Lastly, thank you to the excellent Sabbatical Committee who
helped plan and fund the time away through a grant from the
Lilly Foundation, namely Kyle Mankin, Robin Sanders (who
arranged all the travel needs and was available 24/7 if problems
arose), Kent Henning, Stephanie Burk, Trace Worrell, Whit
Smith, Lynne Waltman, and Vickie Merrill.
I have given a brief presentation of our travels at the last Adult
Forum on Sunday, Sep. 16, and you will hear in future sermons
or classes more reflections on our time abroad. Also, we spent a
couple of weeks in Galatia and the surrounding regions which I
will rely on as we begin the Wednesday Bible study on the Epistle
to the Galatians starting Oct. 3 (find more on that elsewhere
on this page). I hope you can join us this fall as we examine this
book of the Bible from a new perspective.
We missed you very much and are so very glad to be back!
— Fr. Jambor
Soon, we’ll welcome back Fr. Shannon!
Fr. Shannon continues to recover well from his surgery this
summer, and according to his most recent report, he expects
to return to his regular duties as an All Saints’ priest on Sunday,
Sept. 30!

There is an expression, “If
you want to walk on water,
you’ve got to get out of the
boat.” In this six-week series,
we will be moving from
believing to action, from
talking to walking, from faith
to “walking on water.”
“Walking on water” means —
• Facing our fears and choosing not to let fear have the last
• Discovering and embracing God’s call in our lives;
• Experiencing the power of God to accomplish what we
would not have been able to do on our own.
St. Peter, when he saw Jesus walking on the water, said,
“Lord, if it is you, tell me to come to you on the water.” Jesus
said, “Come.”
Letter To The Galatians Bible Study
Eight Weeks beginning on Oct. 3 | Led by Fr. Jambor
10:45 a.m. & again at 6:30 p.m.
Just returned from two
weeks of study in the
region of Galatia in Turkey,
Fr. Jambor will weave
those experiences into this
study of Paul’s Epistle to the
Galatians. (At right is one
of his photos of an ancient
church in this region.)
In a letter that is called by many “the Magna Carta of
Christian liberty,” Paul writes urgently to a church in crisis.
Though the church in Galatia was beset on two sides, scholars
agree that Paul’s principles as articulated in Galatians moved
Christianity from a Jewish sect threatened by division to a
religion that one day would span the globe.
Two learning opportunities left with the Stabiles
All Saints’ parishioners have enjoyed the teaching of Suzanne
and Joe Stabile during September, as they have presented a
series of classes each Wednesday.
‘Know Your Number’ Enneagram
Workshop set for October 5-6
We still have two opportunities to learn from the Stabiles!
The first is the
final program in
their Wednesday
class. On Sept.
26 at 10:45 a.m.
and 6:30 p.m.,
they will present
Suzanne Stabile will also be teaching a Know Your Number
workshop at All Saints’ on Friday, Oct. 5 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00
p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 6 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. There is
no cost and lunch will be provided. However, we must have your
reservation for the class to
insure that the right amount of
food is provided. To register,
contact Sanda Warren at
817-732-1424 or email sanda@
Sept. 26:
“Know Your Number” is the
first step in working with the
Enneagram, a model of human
personality. In this program,
Suzanne introduces the Nine
Types of personalities. Each
personality type is reviewed
in detail, including an evaluation of the strengths and weakness
of the Types, and the likely interpersonal challenges that may be
involved in an unhealthy expression of the Type. This workshop is
intended for those who want to discover their number or are still
unsure about their number.
Suzanne and Joe Stabile
The hunger to belong is at the heart of our nature; it is the
natural balance of our lives. The sense of belonging keeps
us in balance amid the inner and outer experiences of our
lives. Truth, unity, goodness, justice, beauty and love are
all statements of true belonging; they are also the secret
intention and dream of human longing. Everything belongs!
Women of All Saints’ WineTasting Event Set for Oct. 2
The Women of all Saints’ are kicking off their program
year with a wine-tasting event entitled “Comparing Two
Red Wines.” It will be held at the home of Gretchen
and Whit Smith, 6924 Ridgewood Drive in Fort Worth,
76132 at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 2.
The Enneagram is also a powerful tool for explaining why persons
behave the way they do, and why motivation is largely determined
by personality. The types, which include the Perfectionist, Giver,
Performer, Romantic, Observer, Devil’s Advocate, Epicure,
Boss, and Mediator, are each characterized by unique strengths
and weaknesses. Suzanne’s workshops enable participants to
understand themselves and others, emphasizing tools to enhance
their personal, professional, and spiritual lives.
Reservations for the event are required. Please
call Sanda Warren at 817-732-1424 or
email her at [email protected] before
September 28. Transportation will
be provided from the church on
A master teacher of the Enneagram, Suzanne draws upon her
educational background at Southern Methodist University, as well
as her life skills learned as a mother of four, a social worker and a
minister’s spouse. Her refreshing teaching style is an unforgettable
blend of humor, honesty and authenticity. She and her husband,
Joseph, are the founders of Life in the Trinity Ministry and the
Micah Center in Dallas, Texas.
Come enjoy an evening of
fellowship, wine instruction
and sipping and fun with
your fellow Saints! The
wine-tastings tend to fill up rather quickly, so you’ll want to
reserve your spot as soon as possible.
Blessing of the Pets
Bring your beloved animals to the Blessing
of the Pets, set for Saturday, Oct. 6 from
9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., outside the Youth
House. Our furry friends provide us with
many blessings. On Oct. 6, it’s their turn!

Equipped for ministry
Between the return of the rector and Rally Day, All Saints’ was a packed place on
Sunday, Sept. 9. Parishioners brought the kids to register for Sunday School and to
enjoy the waterslide. We were fed, thanks to the grilling expertise of the Men’s
Fellowship, and we will be spiritually nourished as well, as we begin the variety
of Bible studies, classes, ministries and guilds that are available this fall. If you
didn’t make it to Rally Day, don’t worry. There’s a spot for you to get involved in a
meaningful way at All Saints’. How has God equipped you for service?
Wende Dwyer-Johnsen, left, talks to a parishioner about
All Saints’ Monthly Outreach programs, which benefit a
different community organization each month.
Rally Day activities took place in DeWolfe Hall and outside under tents and shade trees. The weather
was perfect for enjoying the waterslide or a grilled hamburger.
Kyle Mankin staffs the Rite 13 sign-up table.
Students in this age group will begin their
Sunday School with a study of “The Hobbit” and
Christian themes in the book, with the help of
“Finding God in The Hobbit.”
