Holding each other’s joys, sorrows, and concerns before God in prayer is a spiritual practice that characterizes our life together at All Saints. In our worship services, we pray each other’s prayers together. Outside of our time together many parishioners make it part of their daily lives to pray the prayers of the parish community. You are invited to participate in your own way.
Thanks be to God

for the faithfulness of the Friends of Holy Innocents as they seek to preserve this sacred space in our community.
