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. 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.

Thursday Afternoon Book Group
Book Study: "Seeking God: The Way of St. Benedict" by Esther de Wall
Thursdays from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Through December 19th.
Life is a journey. And all life has the potential to guide us along that journey. "Benedictine spirituality… is grounded in the idea that God's presence is everywhere, and it is our job to seek it out, remembering that the material and the spiritual are not distinct and separate realms" (from the forward).
Join us for a reading and discussion group along the Benedictine path. The group is led by Fr. Jonathan and Mtr. Cynthia and all are welcome. Books will be available for purchase.
