All Saints' is always open for prayer and meditation
Message from the Rector
G. Corwin Stoppel
All Saints’ follows the ancient tradition of observing the four weeks of Advent which lead up to Christmas. In very practical terms, this means that we don’t rush from the end of Whitsuntide into Christmas. Rather, we use these four weeks to spiritually prepare for the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Saviour. It affords us the opportunity to reflect on our life, especially our sins and weaknesses so that we become increasingly aware of just how important Jesus is to us. We sing hymns that emphasis waiting, watching, and preparing for that most holy of nights. On Christmas Eve we embrace the joys of the birth of our Saviour. Our church will be decorated and we will sing those beloved, glorious Christmas Carols. Our doors will be open for the three services at 4:30, 7:30, and 10:30, and we encourage you to bring friends and family with you.
