A Message from the Rev. Deacon Nancy O’Shea
“CONTINUING THE CHARGE”
Over 60 years ago, a new church began on a plot of land at White Station and Quince in Memphis. The church was named All Saints’, and was a part of the Episcopal Diocese of Tennessee. It was given the charge to be a beacon of the Light of Christ, as are all our churches. Later, in the early 80’s, the Diocese was divided into three sections: East, with Knoxville as diocesan center, Tennessee, with the see city in Nashville, and West, where St. Mary’s Cathedral in Memphis would serve the new diocese. St. Mary’s had always been the Cathedral for the entire state, and this historic building continues as the official church of our current Bishop of West Tennessee, the Rt. Rev Phoebe Roaf.
All Saints’ has seen many changes through those years, with a variety of clergy and congregation. The Sea Isle neighborhood itself has changed, but the elementary school is still an anchor for the area. Although the congregation of the church has declined in numbers, the strong spirit which began the new church remains in the dedicated parishioners who faithfully attend each Sunday, and who offer their talents and treasure to care for the buildings and grounds. Theirs is a true love for each other and for the opportunity to gather for worship and fellowship. There are certain advantages in small churches. True, there is not a myriad of activities from which to choose, and one cannot remain anonymous very long in a small congregation, but the opportunity for in-depth knowledge of each other is much easier to attain.
It is vital that All Saints’ continue its ministry in this part of Memphis, offering and showing the Light of Christ to all who come. Let us pray for the Holy Spirit to guide us in the search for clergy and new parishioners who will enable this holy mission.
The Mission of All Saints' Episcopal Church is to explore and celebrate God's infinite grace, acceptance,
