    Episcopal Basics: How to Pray Using our Book of Common Prayer

    Our Prayer Book contains a practice over 500 years old designed to keep us in relationship with God and with Anglican Christians around the world through daily prayer, while

    systematically exploring the Bible.


    This practice, the Daily Office of Morning and Evening Prayer, can be done with others or individually, and can be adapted, as needed. The first three weeks will teach and demonstrate how to pray daily Morning and Evening Prayer on one’s own. Beginners welcome! Please bring a Book of Common Prayer from home or the church. The last class will  offer practical suggestions on how to make our Sunday Eucharist experience more spiritual and meaningful. You need not attend all four classes: come as you are able!

    Love Letters: 1, 2 and 3 John


    These three New Testament letters, attributed to the author of the Gospel according to John, expand on the theme that “God is love.” The classes, led by the clergy and

    friends, will help us appreciate both the historical background of the letters’ composition, and their timeless message of love. Bring a Bible in any translation, if you

    have one. No homework or preparation required.

  • Living Room Conversations

    Building on our three Shoulders Down events in 2017, these Living Room Conversations will give us opportunity for small group conversations on important topics across political and other differences. 

    Come join us for balanced, respectful talk outside of our “bubble” that seeks not to convince, but simply to share and to understand. Hosted by the All Saints’ Diversity and Reconciliation Committee. All sessions are from


    6:30 to 8pm in St. Barbara. Light refreshments served. Non-church members welcome - bring a friend! For more information on the format, see livingroomconversations.org. For more resources on important topics from different points of view, see allsides.com


    Tuesday, June 19: Relationships First

    How we treat each other is the difference between a great place to live and a bad place to live. We shape our world through relationships. Most people agree we want communities where all people have dignity and respect. Yet respectful interactions are often not what we see modeled in the media and in politics. And far too many people feel disrespected in their lives. What is our role in these dynamics?


    Tuesday, July 17: American Culture: Melting Pot, Salad Bowl, or Something Else?

    The American Melting Pot is a metaphor used since the 1780s to describe diverse cultures “melting” into one common American culture. As more and more people come here but maintain their homeland and regional cultures, it becomes harder and harder to describe a single, common American culture; perhaps the metaphor of a salad bowl is more appropriate today. Some people think this is as it should be, while others see value in a country having a shared culture, broadly speaking. In this conversation, we consider what IS American culture.


    Tuesday, August 21: Status and Privilege

    We joke about “keeping up with the Joneses” — but there’s real competition in our society for status and the accompanying privilege. How do we decide what we most value that bestows this status? While our country seems to favor wealth, there are other forms of status and privilege. What privilege do each of us enjoy? And how does that correspond with our status? This conversation examines our own status and how we use our status in everyday life. From education to wealth to gender to race, let’s talk about what we have…and what we desire.

  • All Saints' Prison Ministry

    Send a Prisoner a Message of God's Love

    Matthew 25:36 "For I was in prison and you visited me."


    As Episcopalians, we promise in our Baptismal Covenant to "strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being."   Many of the prisoners experience isolation, rejection by family, and suffer deeply from being separated from their children.  A few encouraging words from your heart can brighten their day and uplift their hearts.  


    Donations of cards and stamps are gratefully accepted for this ministry.  If you would like more information, contact Lora Villasenor at lmvillasenor@msn.com.


    Watch for service dates coming soon.
