Welcome to All Saints’– a family committed to embracing the Divine in all through experiencing and sharing the compassionate story of Jesus Christ.
We are deeply rooted in the beauty of the Episcopal tradition while open to innovative ways of experiencing God's presence in all sacred traditions.

All Saints’ is a house of prayer for all God's people - and we warmly welcome your presence at any of our services, classes or events.
Blessing of the Animals - Sunday, October 2,10:30 am
What a special service this was! This year, instead of a separate Blessing of the Animals service outside, we invited pets to be part of our regular worship service on Sunday morning. Here's a video done by a Corpus Christi Caller-Times journalist.
Further along the Spiritual Journey - A formation series Wednesday evenings in October, 6:00 - 7:15pm
This series is an exploration of the spiritual journey for seekers of all sorts, including newcomers to All Saints’ and people who’ve been around a while and are restless to explore. We will navigate some stepping-stones of the spiritual life, explore essential questions and dig into the journey of deeper spiritual growth. Meetings are led by Fr. Jonathan and will meet in the Rite 13 room (October 5th) and the library (October 12, 19, 26).
October 5: “The spiritual life: an introduction.”
October 12: “The questions may tell us more than the answers.”
October 19: “The stories matter - but do some matter more?”
October 26: “It’s not only about Sunday- but it’s really about Sunday: The mystery of sacrament and community.”
God and Science
Adult Formation Class: Don Weiner
Sundays 9:10-10:10 AM in the Library
Sep 11, 18, 25, Oct 2, 16, 23
This class will incorporate both teachings from mysticism as well as from science, including sections on emergence, self-organization to a higher state, consciousness, dualistic vs. a relational way of experiencing and perceiving reality, evolutionary spirituality, and constructing metaphors for understanding our spiritual journey. Come explore discoveries that until recently would seem to be science fiction. Be open to new possibilities in how you relate to the deeper reality which is known by many names.
The Practices: Diane Weiner
Mondays 6:00 PM in the Library
Sep 12, 19, 26, Oct 3, 17, 24
Now we test in our inner beings the ideas that both religion and science have brought us. We use meditation, breathing practices and visualizations to explore the common ground of truth that unfolds between teachings of God and science. It is helpful but not necessary to attend the class.
One Wednesday - monthly first Wednesday interfaith gathering in silence - at 7pm
We gather in silence - without a leader other than our hearts. We pray or meditate in silence for 20-30 minutes. We depart in silence. This national project has the intention to invite people to gather in a church, synagogue, mosque, ashram, etc. each first Wedndesday of the month to spend 30 minutes in silence.
“Silence is the first language of God,” wrote St John of the Cross, “and it is the one language that needs no translation and allows all to be one.” http://onewednesday.org.
Sharing Faith Dinners - Thursday, October 20th
11:30 am-1:45pm or Evening: 6:30-8:45pm
These dinners are a wonderful opportunity to meet and get to know people in this church in a deeper way than we might have a chance to do in the busyness of everyday life. This will also be an opportunity for us to reflect a bit on living in faith and our life together at All Saints'. You do not need to be a "theologian" to share – we are a church that honors each person, wherever they are on their spiritual journey.
After signing up you’ll be assigned to a group of 8. We’ll follow-up to ask if you want to sit with family, friends, or on your own. You'll bring your own picnic lunch or dinnert. Each group will be seated in their own room within the church and will have a moderator to provide a safe, comfortable space for listening and sharing.
Please sign-up in advance on the posters near the conference room, or click here.
Sunday Morning Music Circle, Sunday, Oct 23, 9:15am
Join us in the Oratory. This is an opportunity for novice or experienced musicians to play and have some fun in worshiping the Lord. We will sing some old favorites from LifeStreams and camp, learn new songs and listen to instrumentals. Bring your voice, your instruments, your kids, yourself. Please contact Mary Carpenter, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you need lyric, chord or lead sheets printed for the group.
New Free Little Library Just for Kids
Have you noticed the new little library outside the church? It is our new Free Little Library just for Kids and it is filled with all kinds of picture and adventure books waiting to be read by a child or young person. It was designed and created by Chuck and Jan Hilton and has already had its first withdrawal. With school out for the summer, we are encouraging children and adults of all ages to use the “Free Little Libraries” here at All Saints’. So take a book to enjoy or bring a book to add to the library for someone else. Reading is a wonderful way to go on adventures to far off lands without ever leaving home.
Our regular worship and class schedule:
8 AM - Holy Eucharist without music - upstairs nave
9:15-10:15 AM - Spiritual formation classes for all ages (Sep-May)
- Holy Eucharist enriched with music - upstairs nave Tuesdays: 11:40 AM Mid-day Holy Eucharist and Public Healing Service - upstairs nave
Children's Chapel - We offer a Children’s Chapel during the Sunday 10:30 am service as an option, as children are warmly welcomed at all of our services. Children can gather before 10:30 in the downstairs Oratory for activities to further their understanding of that Sunday’s lessons. The children are returned to their parents during the passing of the peace. Families will remain together for Eucharist and the completion of the worship service. (During the summer break, our childcare providers will take over the summer version of this offering.)
