glass-fishYou are always welcome at All Souls, regardless of your religious or spiritual background, your doubts, your questions, your past life, or anything else about you. Just come. We are a community that strives to embody and practice the reconciling love of Jesus Christ in our care for one another. You may have found your way here in many ways: by invitation from a friend, while traveling past the corner of Cedar and Spruce, because of a wish for a child’s baptism, in a search for a deeper faith, or a hope for a community to call home. No matter how you came here, you are welcome here.

The best way to join All Souls is to participate in our worship of the living God on Sundays, because it is from this common worship that our lives extend. If you feel at home here we encourage you to take part in the greater life of the parish, by gathering with others at All Souls, through service, and by deepening in the understanding in the faith. Along the way, the clergy and staff of the parish are glad to meet to talk about what has brought you to this place and how life in this community might be serve to deepen your faith. This deeper personal commitment often is witnessed to through the initiatory rites of the Church: baptism, confirmation, or reception.

We ask members to be active participants in the life of the parish. This includes supporting the community in several ways, by engaging in a regular practice of faith, by caring for those inside and outside of our walls, by taking part in the week-to-week life of All Souls, and by making a financial pledge for the work and mission of the parish. We hope that this communal expression of life in God will offer you what we all seek: the transforming, life-giving love of God.
