All Saints’ Day, the first of November, proclaims and demonstrates the grace of God manifested in individual lives which have been given over to him. Some years ago I suggested in a sermon that there was a “scandal of particularity” in our faith. That is to say, it is not just about vague religious ideas in general, a nebulous spirituality. Rather our faith is about particular things (incarnation, death, and resurrection) which happened to a particular individual named Jesus, born of a particular woman named Mary, in a specific place at a specific time in our human history. He did not exist in some mythical pre-history, but rather in first century A.D. He was born in Bethlehem and died in Jerusalem. I would suggest that All Saints’ Day carries that particularity forward into the life of the Church.
All Saints is a community from Boston, the nearby South Shore, and from points further away. Those who worship here include both Episcopalians and other baptized Christians who find the faith and worship of this Christian community meaningful, as well as those seeking to find a place to experience God's presence. Much parish business (and a good deal of fun and pleasantries) happens at coffee hour, so if you want to find out what makes All Saints, Ashmont the place it is, a good first step is to join us in Peabody Hall for some refreshment after the Mass.
If you are looking for opportunities to be a part of the every week business of the community, here are some ministries where you would be very welcome...

All Saints is located in the south Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, just off Peabody Square, at 209 Ashmont St. and is a very short walk from the Ashmont T station on the Red Line. (Click icon for map.)
The five principal levels of our buildings are handicap accessible, served by a five-stop elevator. Handicap access into both buildings is by a walkway and ADA-compliant ramp from the parking lot to the Ashmont Street door of the church. There are handicap accessible bathrooms on four levels of the church and parish house.
There is a private parking lot for 47 cars and on-street parking on both Ashmont Street and on the other streets surrounding the church.
Four of these spaces are reserved for Zipcars.
Our emphasis at the Parish of All Saints is on sacramental worship (the Mass or Holy Eucharist) celebrated in a traditional Anglo-Catholic style, with strong orthodox teaching and preaching, supportive pastoral care, a caring parish family, and responsibility to our community and the greater world.
