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 XVII

ExcerptOur culture has constructed monuments and temples and liturgies and selected its own saints, in order to bless itself and form us and our children in their image. We are in this culture but not of this culture. Be attentive. Be intelligent. Be reasonable. Be responsible. Our society is proficient in spiritual formation. How do I know that I have been spiritually formed by this culture? ...

Saints Bio: St. Michael & All Angels

On the Feast of Michael and all Angels, popularly called Michaelmas, we give thanks for the many ways in which God’s loving care watches over us, both directly and indirectly, and we are reminded that the richness and variety of God’s creation far exceeds our knowledge of it. The Holy Scriptures often speak of created intelligences other than humans who worship God in heaven and act as His messengers and agents on earth. We are not told much about them, and it is not clear how much of what we are told is poetic. Jesus speaks of angels as rejoicing over penitent sinners (Lk 15:10). Elsewhere, in a statement that has been variously understood, he warns against misleading a child, because their angels behold the face of God. The order of Angels has always been understood as very much involved with the Communion of Saints and especially associated with our prayers, which was acknowledged in the mass of the 1549 Book of Common Prayer:

“Yet, we beseech thee to accept this our bounden duty and service, and command these our prayers and supplications, by the Ministry of thy holy Angels, to be brought up into thy holy Tabernacle before the sight of thy divine majesty; not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offenses, through Jesus Christ our Lord; by whom, and with whom, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, all honor and glory be unto thee, O Father Almighty, world without end. Amen.”

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. Acts 2:42
