All Souls is a community that professes Jesus as Christ in the tradition of the Episcopal Church. We believe our place within the larger story is to offer a welcoming, progressive, and thoughtful community. In homage to great stories of the past, we choose to preserve the beauty of traditional liturgy seeking novelty and innovation the ways we love and serve the world.
The beauty of our community lies in its diverse canon of stories. Some of our stories are ancient. Others are newer and are still being written in the lives of those who worship here. All Souls is a place to meet with God through worship and community; a place to catch your breath, find your voice, and discover a way to meaningfully contribute to the world around you.
We strive to reflect the all-embracing love of Christ in our hospitality to friends and strangers alike. All are welcome here. Please join us for Sunday Mass at 8:30 or 11:00 a.m. or for Morning Prayer at 7:15 a.m. Tuesday through Friday of every week.
If you’re new to All Souls and want to learn more about us, please join us for one of our quarterly Newcomers Wine and Cheese Receptions. Our next is Sunday, May 4th from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. We meet either on the front lawn in nice weather or in the undercroft (ground floor level). This is an opportunity for new and not-so-new members to get to know each other in an informal setting.
Our Membership Program is an opportunity for you to learn more about All Souls and the Episcopal Church – our beliefs, traditions, and structure, This program is currently offered twice each year and consists of three sessions. The first two explore the basics of our denomination and our parish in small group settings and are held on Sundays before or after Mass. The third session is held over a meal with discussion is led by our Rector. Watch this site for the date of our next program
