The following sermon was preached by Father Jarvis at the annual national mass of the Society of Mary, celebrated at All Saints' on Saturday, May 6, 2017.
"When the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, 'They have no wine.'" [John 2:3]
The Choir of All Saints Worcester joined us Feb 2 to create another memorable Candlemas. Listen to Psalm 48, "Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised" sung to an Anglican chant by William Crotch. Click the button below for more audio clips.
1 Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised * in the city of our God, even upon his holy hill.
2 The hill of Sion is a fair place, and the joy of the whole earth; * upon the north side lieth the city of the great King: God is well known in her palaces as a sure refuge.
3 For lo, the kings of the earth * were gathered, and gone by together.
4 They marvelled to see such things; * they were astonished, and suddenly cast down.
5 Fear came there upon them; and sorrow, * as upon a woman in her travail.
6 Thou dost break the ships of the sea * through the east-wind.
7 Like as we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God; * God upholdeth the same for ever.
8 We wait for thy loving-kindness, O God, * in the midst of thy temple.
9 O God, according to thy Name, so is thy praise unto the world's end; * thy right hand is full of righteousness.
10 Let the mount Sion rejoice, and the daughters of Judah be glad, * because of thy judgments.
11 Walk about Sion, and go round about her; *and tell the towers thereof.
12 Mark well her bulwarks, consider her palaces, * that ye may tell them that come after.
13 For this God is our God for ever and ever: * he shall be our guide unto death.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, * as it was in the beginning is now, and shall be forever, Amen.
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.
