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. We are committed to prayer, to compassionate engagement with the world, to spiritual formation and to the spirit of inclusion. 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.
Road Construction in Front of the Church
The street improvements on Staples street have reached the church. Traffic in front of the church has been reduced to two lanes making a left turn (from the direction of Baldwin Street) into the church parking lot difficult. If coming toward the church from Baldwin Street we recommend the following: turn left onto McClendon; turn right on Swantner and continue around the block to Texas Trail; turn right on Texas Trail; right onto South Staples; then make the easier right hand turn off of South Staples into the church parking lot. Drive safely, and we'll see you soon.

Registration Deadline: October 2

"From the moment that we are born, we begin the process of aging. As Willie Nelson would say, we go through phases and stages. At the various times of transition in our lives, we find ourselves needing to de-clutter both externally and internally. The interior process of decluttering offers us increasing inner freedom, calm and the ability to be less caught up in our own dramas. During our time together, using material from the Celtic tradition, we will reflect on aging as invitation as well as limitation. We will tell stories, and we will write some prayers. And through it all we will remember that this human life is short, and mysterious, shot through with grace and glory." - the Rev. Mary Earle
