Small Groups at All Saints

Our Small Groups are open to all parishioners, singles and families, at All Saints. They exist to build community at our parish and for parishioners to grow and learn together. We currently have three groups spread out geographically. We hope you will join the group closest to you in order to build community.

The groups follow similar structure and meet every-other-week on Sunday evenings for evening prayer, book discussion and a simple dinner. We currently have three groups: one meets in Ivy, one downtown, and one north of Charlottesville.

To get connected to a small group, please e-mail Fr. Sean:

Fr. Glenn's Sermon for Trinity XVI

ExcerptWhat these four narratives have in common is that they are accounts of resuscitations from the dead. What do I mean by resuscitation? This is another point I want you to take away today: I mean to distinguish resuscitations from the resurrection of the dead. Lazarus is probably the most famous case of resuscitation from the dead.

Saints Bio: Hildegard

Hildegard of Bingen has been called by her admirers “one of the most important figures in the history of the Middle Ages,” and “the greatest woman of her time.” Her time was the 1100’s (she was born in 1098), the century of Eleanor of Aquitaine, of Peter Abelard and Bernard of Clairvaux, of the rise of the great universities and the building of Chartres cathedral. She was the daughter of a knight, and when she was eight years old she went to the Benedictine monastery at Mount St Disibode to be educated. The monastery was in the Celtic tradition, and housed both men and women (in separate quarters). When Hildegard was eighteen, she became a nun. Twenty years later, she was made the head of the female community at the monastery. Within the next four years, she had a series of visions, and devoted the ten years from 1140 to 1150 to writing them down, describing them (this included drawing pictures of what she had seen), and commenting on their interpretation and significance. During this period, Pope Eugenius III sent a commission to inquire into her work. The commission found her teaching orthodox and her insights authentic, and reported so to the Pope, who sent her a letter of approval. She wrote back urging the Pope to work harder for reform of the Church.
