Keeping the Body Healthy and Connected here at All Saints'

In response to directives and guidance from Governor Hogan and Bishop Sutton, and in conversation with our staff and leadership, we have made several changes to our operations.

Learn more on our Staying Connected page

At All Saints’, public worship will cease beginning Sunday, March 15, including Sunday and Wednesday weekly worship. We will increase our virtual offerings during this time, including Morning and Evening Prayer, Compline, Healing Prayer, and Sunday worship (see below). Bulletins can be found here:

RSVP for Wednesday Worship

In addition to our spiritual offerings, the National Cathedral will live-stream worship each Sunday at 11:15 am.

To ensure the safety of our community and do our part to "flatten the curve," our staff is working remotely for the foreseeable future. For immediate assistance, email our staff or reach out via cell, and they will do their best to assist you remotely. We will have inconsistent access to our physical mail, so please do as much correspondence as you can through email. If you have a pastoral emergency, please call the church office for automated instructions to reach the clergy-on-call.

We have also chosen to suspend all church events effective March 13. This includes all in-person meetings, both on- and off-site. We encourage our leaders to get creative, and use zoom, chat, phone, and video meetings to their advantage. Now more than ever, this is a time for us to stay connected even as we increase physical distance. If you are part of a small group or ministry, we encourage you to check in with one another.

Our building will be closed to all outside groups and rentals beginning Monday, March 16. We are giving our groups an opportunity over the weekend to connect with their participants. This decision does not come lightly, and we are striving to balance the needs of the individual groups that have found a home at All Saints’ with the needs of our wider global community.

May God’s loving embrace quell our anxiety and inspire us to care for one another, and all those in need in our wider community.

Yours in God’s peace,
Mtr. Adrien & Rev. Jess

O God of compassion, giver of life and health, we pray your healing mercies upon all who are in any way affected by the outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Comfort and sustain those who have been stricken; relieve their pain, and restore to them your gifts of gladness and strength. Grant to all in authority the courage to make wise decisions that are essential for the common good, and strengthen them to lead institutions that care for those whom they serve. Watch over all first responders and those in the medical professions whose duty it is to care for the sick; guard them from all danger, and keep them safe in the knowledge that is through their sacrifice and service that the health of the whole community is promoted. Mercifully accept these our prayers, O God of all comfort, and our only help in time of need. Amen.
