The All Saints Social Ministries Mission:

Inspired by the Marks of Mission of the national Episcopal Church, the mission of the Social Ministries Programs of All Saints is the mission of Christ:

  • To respond to human need through loving service.
  • To pursue justice, reconciliation, and peace.

Our Christian Call to Action:

All Saints Social Ministries Programs strive to fulfill our understanding of the requirements and the vows of our Christian faith:

  • Micah 6:8 asks “And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?”
  • The Baptismal vow of the Episcopal Church asks: “Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself?” and “Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?”

Our Programs:

With God’s help, we respond to human need through loving service, currently offering the following:

  • Food Pantry – please see above.
  • Bag Lunches for guests of the April Showers Program of the Interfaith Homelessness Network.
    • Lunches are prepared in the parish kitchen 9-10 am on the third Sunday of every other month, beginning in February each year.
