Ancient. Biblical. Spirit-Filled.

WELCOMING. Practical. Ancient. Biblical. Spirit-Filled. That’s All Saints!


A “Three Streams” parish (meaning family), we blend the ancient and catholic with the Scriptural and Evangelical, as well as the powerful and Charismatic.  We’re completely Anglican--from the old Latin term for “English” but unswervingly reliable, undeniably Christian and unquestionably welcoming.

Our Gospel is clear, challenging and applicable. Our Scripture is relevant, Life-giving and direct. And our Holy Ghost is completely empowering, pervasive and personal. You can find all three in every worship service, from our classical Mass, Compline or Evensong to our free-wheeling, Spirit-led Koinonia praise and worship gathering.

When you visit us, you’ll find a family of sinners saved by God’s Grace and mercy to us. Period. Honest folks finding the Way together. All of us are broken vessels following the Lord together, in community. Not perfect...just forgiven. We’re here for the Lord, and each other!

Here’s our “bottom line:” You can count on All Saints. We won’t compromise. Not our Gospel. Not our Scripture. Not our tradition. Not our mission. The Church is supposed to change the World, not vice versa. That’s what we do. Together. Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute. Not trying to re-invent the Church, but trying to do what God’s Holy Church has done for centuries: be a light to a darkened world.

So, consider yourself invited. We’re looking forward to meeting you and sharing the good things the Lord has given us all!

  • Liturgy Lesson: The Chasuble

    As with nearly all of our ancient Faith practice, we're formed by the things we see. Those visual clues—the silent sermons—in the liturgy, the altar, its adornments, the sacred vessels, and the vestments assist us in growing our Faith and relationship to our Lord. Not surprisingly, then, there is a silent sermon with donning the chasuble, as well. The most conspicuous garment worn by the priest during Mass is the chasuble, or outer vestment, from the Latin casuala, meaning "small house." The beauty and dignity of this most visible Eucharistic vestment is essential in a properly ordered liturgy. When a new priest receives the chasuble at his ordination, the bishop exclaims to him, "Receive the sacerdotal (sacred and priestly) garment, for the Lord is powerful to increase in you charity (love) and perfection (holiness, completion)." The chasuble literally and symbolically overlays all the other vestments—as all other virtues begin with and rely on the supreme virtue of charity—God's unchanging love that can make us all complete in Him. The celebrant dons this last and most comprehensive vestment to signal the holiest work at the altar is about to begin. In ancient times, it heralded the end of the Mass of the Catechumens—also called the ante-communion—that part of the service those being trained for confirmation (catechumens) were allowed to worship in. When the chasuble was donned, it silently instructed the catechumens to depart while calling those who had been confirmed—the faithful—to prepare for the Canon (standard) of the Mass—the consecration of the Body and Blood of our Lord to be distributed to His people. The silent sermon here reminds us all we are allowed to the Holy Table only by God's Grace and partake of it unworthily at great peril. It tasks us to examen, confession, and submission to our Lord before celebrating His one sacrifice and taking His nature for ours. It also reminds us of our baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire—and our immersion by that inward and spiritual grace in the Lord Himself. Once the Canon of the Mass ends and we have taken upon us Christ's nature through the Sacraments, the celebrant removes the chasuble as the signal that we are now ready to be sent into the World to carry God's Grace and to demonstrate our lives in Him to the World. Removing the outer garment preaches to us that we are open to the world's inspection and are ready to work in the fields for the Kingdom. The ancient Church underscored this in the dismissal when they used the Latin "Ite, missa est," meaning "Go, you are sent," referring to our work continuing the work of the Apostles—carrying the Good News to the World around us!

     

    Collect for the 9th Sunday After Trinity

    GRANT to us, Lord, we beseech thee, the spirit to think and do always such things as are right; that we, who cannot do any thing that is good without thee, may by thee be enabled to live according to thy will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
