Effective March 5th, 2021, Bishop Dietsche removed Diocesan restrictions on public worship, subject to state guidelines. The protocols established last Spring for safe worship are still to be observed, including those related to the Eucharist, masking and social distance, and congregational singing.

What You Need to Know to Join Us at Worship

We will meet for worship at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday. The service will be outdoors in the All Saints' Courtyard, each Sunday that weather permits. In the case of rain we will move into the sanctuary with socially distant seating. All must wear masks, observe all hygiene and safety practices and maintain social distance by household. We follow all protocols set out by the state and the Diocese. Please stay home and worship online with us if you are sick.

We are mindful that many will not be ready to join us in person right away. We encourage each person to make use of our virtual and online resources until the time comes that you are personally comfortable returning to public worship services.

Our services follow the Book of Common Prayer. We will provide copies of the daily readings and copies of the Book of Common Prayer for our congregation to follow along. If you own a copy of the BCP you are welcome to bring your own. You are also invited to bring your own blankets or chairs for outdoor seating on days that we meet in the courtyard.

Our choir is back in session and joining us in worship during our outdoor services. Colette and Father Kevin continue to evaluate and make whatever changes are necessary for the safety of all. All are welcome to participate in the choir. Rehearsals are held at 10:00 a.m. Sundays, prior to the beginning of the service.

Faith Formation for the Family - Holy Communion class is being held Sundays from May 16- June 20 (no class Memorial Day weekend). The class meets at 10:00 am, outdoors, or in the parish hall in case of bad weather.  There will be a summer break after this date and classes will resume in September. 

If you would like to assist at our worship services, please contact Father Kevin at While many of our regular liturgical practices are on hold, there is still plenty of work that goes into each Sunday.
