A beautiful video has been made introducing All Saints’, and it’s now available for anyone.
Feel free to share it!
And many thanks to Patrick Snow of Chelmsford for making this and allowing us to use it.
3 new 2017 mosaics are now hanging in the parish hall in celebration of All Saints’ 150th anniversary. Each of them consists of over 5000 individual images that were taken from all sorts of parish life events including services, parties, marriages, and fellowship events throughout the years.
I’m fairly certain that each of you can find yourself somewhere in them! OK maybe you won’t be able to find yourself, b ut it’s very likely that YOU ARE THERE!
Open Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays 10-3!
Accepting gently used fall and winter clothing and pocketbooks.
Thrift Shop volunteers needed and welcomed! Contact Maggie Marshall for more info.
A Special Parish Meeting was held on June 4 to approve a revision of the All Saints Bylaws.
On Easter Day 2017, All Saints came together to participate in the on-going power of Resurrection in our lives and world. We all know how easy it is to slip into the cynicism that is gripping our country at the moment, so it is a profound act of healing and faith to gather as the Body of Christ to proclaim a different story, a story that starts in the Original Blessing of creation, goes through Israel, then comes to a point in the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ. It is this story that frames our lives and transforms the entire cosmos.
Mary Magdalene received a sign of two angelic messengers in the tomb to open her heart to the Risen Christ standing right behind her. All Saints received the sign of Beauty, which was present in music, flowers, liturgy, and the gathered fellowship. This sign opened our hearts to the presence of the Risen Christ in Word, Sacrament, and Community.
I continue to be filled with awe and gratitude for those who use their gifts to make it possible for us to see Christ, and to know him, as the One who is forever with us and for us. Thanks to all of you who worked so hard during The Great Three Days to make our celebration of Resurrection so full of Alleluias!

This video was taken by a local amateur videographer named Damon L. Arcangelo who visited All Saints’. Enjoy.
As an amateur photographer, I think he captured an “essence” of All Saints’ that goes back generations, and has a great eye for some of the stunning views in our church. Absolutely beautiful. See if you agree…
Thank you Damon!
