Parish Life

Parishioners come together for many reasons at All Saints'.

  We celebrate the Eucharist, serve the community,

and build friendships during our coffee hours, celebrations, and dinners.  

 

A message from The Rev. Deacon Nancy O’Shea 

 

A Great Beginning

 

Happy New Year and a blessed Epiphany to everyone! Here we are at the beginning 

of a new year and the church season of Epiphany when the light of Christ was brought to the world. We celebrate those three wise men who saw a star and traveled to see where the star led them.  We have given them names of Caspar, Melchoir and Balthasar, and know that they were astrologers, soothsayers or had similar skills, and they brought 

precious gifts to the Child in the manager:  gold, frankincense and myrrh.  They joined the angels, shepherds, animals and others who had come to pay homage to this very special baby and his parents.  King Herod was not among those who honored the child.  Although he greatly desired to locate the baby in order to kill him, he could not find him, and because of that, he ordered all male children under the age of two to be killed. He could not afford to have any competition; his power had to be absolute. We remember those boys who died each December 28 as the Holy Innocents.
