It is our utmost desire to provide a place where all can come to worship

All Saints Church was established in September of 1999. The first
worship service was held in a rented commercial property located at 535
Franklin St. and was attended by 9 people. Currently our parish “family”
has 65+ regular communicants and we now worship in our own building
located at 863 Salem Rd. Should you decide to worship with us you will
see that our congregation to be very open, friendly, and ready to help in any way.
The Worship Service
Most of our liturgies are a mixture of Roman, Anglican, and German Old
Catholic. We have found that by combining the rites nearly everyone from
a catholic (Roman, Anglican, Orthodox, Old Catholic, etc.) background
feels at home since they are familiar with at least part of the service.
However, since our service is in fact unique it also offers us an
identity of our own.
You will also find a blend of hymns
and music. At most services we use liturgical music that is easy to
sing, e.g. folk type music. However, at times we will use more
contemporary music, and at others times more traditional.
Sermons tend to be focused on both
the meaning of the readings then and now. It is our desire that you
leave the service with the knowledge and wisdom to apply the Word in
your daily life. The first Sunday of each month we have a children’s
Sermon that is specifically focused to immerse our little brothers and
sisters in the wisdom of the Word as well.
We offer and profess seven sacraments. They are Baptism, Communion,
Confirmation, Holy Matrimony, Anointing of the Sick, Reconciliation, and
Holy Orders. Our denomination believes that since all persons baptized
in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are [by this Baptism]
members incorporate into the Body of Christ that none of our Christian
brothers and sisters of other denominations should be refused Communion
or any other Sacrament.

All Saints Old Catholic Church (All Saints) is a Catholic
Communion not affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church. All Saints
celebrates the same sacraments and offers the sacraments in
nonjudgmental acceptance. In doing so it is our belief that we are best
following the teaching of the early church in that first and foremost
Jesus came to heal and not to judge. If you have been rejected because
of a previous marriage or have a spouse that is not "catholic", you are
welcome here. If you simply cannot believe all that you have been taught
about recent dogmas and doctrine, or you cannot accept the "new age"
teachings that are infiltrating so many other denominations you are
welcome here. In closing, if God is calling you to find a church home
for the first time, or if you are being called to return home we ask
that you consider our parish, you will be welcomed with open arms.
