Summer Seminar Series
Please join us for a two-part seminar this July intended to help form and instruct All Saints parishioners. The lectures will deepen parishioners’ understanding of the Anglo-Catholic identity, faith, and life. During small group discussions, we will examine how to practice and live this faith more fully amid today’s busy, modern culture. Finally, we will have time to answer questions that arise during these discussions with the clergy. Parishioners are encouraged to stay for Mass at 12:15 if possible. We will also record these lectures in order to have them online with additional resources.
This is open to adults and interested youth. Please read the details & register below to reserve you spot!
