Though the texts are ancient, and the music spans all of church history, this form of service is modern - it was first drawn up for use in the wooden shed that served as the cathedral in Truro, and first sung on Christmas Eve in 1880. It took almost four decades for the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols to make its way to the choir of King's College at Cambridge University. For many today, this sacred service of hymns, carols, and readings – opening with "Once in royal David's city" – puts Christ back into Christmas, gently beckoning us away from the madding crowds of the secular yule 'holiday' season. Anchored by the Choir of Men and Boys, the Parish of All Saints' Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is free - not even an offering will be taken. Bring your wonder, and behold.
Under the direction of Andrew Sheranian, this ensemble of professional singers and instrumentalists, drawn from the Handel and Haydn Society, Boston Baroque, Emmanuel Music, Trinity Church in Copley Square, and the Church of the Advent, will perform organ, instrumental, and choral music of Johann Sebastian Bach. And....they will be joined by the All Saints' Boys Choir. Sponsored by Ashmont Hill Chamber Music. Tickets (EventBrite): Adult: $25 - Student: $18 - EBT Card Holder: $3 - children under 13 free.

My Dear Folk,
This is the first issue of The Chronicle since the death of Fr. Jarvis. It is surely appropriate for us to reflect on that remarkable life of Fr. Jarvis. Priest, preacher, teacher, friend and fellow pilgrim on this earthly sojourn – he was all these and much more. Indeed, those of us who knew him primarily through this aspect of his life, often knew but a little of his reputation and accomplishments in other areas. In this issue of The Chronicle we pay tribute to Tony Jarvis. There is much that we can learn from his example and from his teaching; there is much in his life and in his loving service for which we can give thanks to Almighty God.
This tribute begins with some thoughts which I shared in this year’s Annual Report to the parish; it concludes with the last sermon that Tony preached to his beloved Parish. As for the past two decades Tony’s Letter would always appear on the final pages of each Chronicle, it is only fitting for him once again to have the last word.

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.
