Post-Election Contemplative Eucharist

Sunday, November 13

On the Sunday after Election Day we will gather at 5:00 p.m. for a Contemplative Eucharist with special intentions for hope and healing for our nation. The meditative rhythm of choral and instrumental music combined with the silence and the beauty of the church architecture will offer balm for our polarization and polemic weary souls.  The homily is an instrumental piece and the prayers are said silently — with the invitation to light a candle at the altar rail or transept as outward and visible signs of the light we are called to shine in the world.

The Feast of All Saints Day at All Saints Church

Sunday, November 6

At All Saints Church the Feast of All Saints Day is a Celebration of Life in the Presence of Death. It is the day the church celebrates in music and liturgy the truth that this community — what we call the communion of saints — is stronger even than death. It is the day we traditionally honor all who have died: the great martyrs of history who gave their lives to defend their faith in the risen Christ, as well as those we have personally known and loved; those we hold close to our hearts and minds and those who are victims of cruelty, war and violence. And this year it is the day we welcome Mike Kinman on his first Sunday as the 10th Rector of All Saints Church.

The Church and the City: Seeds for a More Positive Future

 A series of stories about All Saints’ gifts to the city
