EcoFaith is a group of All Saints parishioners who are attempting to be faithful as stewards of the Creation and looking for ways to creatively respond to the ecological crisis threatening our planet. We worship together, encourage each other in our personal struggles, and lend our collective support to movements, within the Church and beyond, which are working for a sustainable future  of the Creation. We are welcoming of new members and the curious. Please join us.                     Craig Heverly

Hats & Scarves
The Psalm 139 Prayer Shawl Ministry at All Saints Episcopal Church invites knitters and crocheters in the community to join in making hats and/or scarves for those in need. On November 21 we will give each of our Hot Meal guests a hand knitted or crocheted hat and scarf. This is a good way to use your yarn scraps and help someone less fortunate. There is a greater need for masculine colors than feminine colors.
If you are in need of yarn scraps or would like more information, please call the church office at 503-777-3829 during office hours. Special thanks to all of you knitters and crocheters!

Featured FAQ's:  
Presiding Bishop-elect, Michael Curry 

About healing the breach with the global south:
"As a bishop, I am supportive of our current presiding bishop and our leadership and the work we've done. I am committed to the work of reconciliation.  It is part of our gospel mandate. I have friends in the global south and many of my ancestors are from the global south. I will be an instrument of God's reconciliation any way I can that will lead to true reconciliation. I'll do my best."
