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:

The Labor Cross (1954) by Father John Gribowich

Fr. Sean's Sermon for Trinity XV

ExcerptWe learn in the end, that the nature of the Christian life, these two extremes of abase and abound, are found perfectly in the life of Christ. In fact, as our lives resemble his more and more, as our life is hid in Him, we learn that these extremes come together in a life of love.

The Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

During the reign of Constantine, first Roman Emperor to profess the Christian faith, his mother Helena went to Israel and there undertook to find the places especially significant to Christians. She was helped in this by the fact that in their destructions around 135, the Romans had built pagan shrines over many of these sites. Having located, close together, what she believed to be the sites of the Crucifixion and of the Burial (at locations that modern archaeologists think may be correct), she then had built over them the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which was dedicated on 14 September 335. It has become a day for recognizing the Cross in a festal atmosphere that would be inappropriate on Good Friday as a symbol of triumph, as a sign of Christ’s victory over death, and a reminder of His promise, “And when I am lifted up, I will draw all men unto me.” (John 12:32)
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. Acts 2:42
