At All Saints' Church we gather to know Jesus Christ and make Him known.

The turning of the seasons...

These weeks between All Saints' Day and the first Sunday in Advent form a kind of mini-season of the Church Year - a Pre-Advent season.  As we near the end and also the beginning of the Church Year, our readings take on a decidedly different tone.  We begin to focus our thoughts on endings - on endings that are also beginnings. 

Even the weather is shifting. We experienced our first real frost this week and of course the darkness that hits earlier in the afternoon now that we've changed the clocks. The children at the school all spoke of this as they were picked up in the afternoon...saying, "Mommy why is it dark...is it bedtime?" The earth itself seems to going to sleep.  

But we liturgical Christians are blessed, because we know as we focus in on the end times in Church and all around us things seems to be dying, we are about to turn our attention to the coming light of Christmas...."the dawn of our salvation" as the familiar Christmas hymn, "Silent Night" proclaims. 

Join us this Sunday as we contemplate all of this together, and begin to prepare ourselves in heart and mind to welcome Jesus into our hearts and into our homes.

Belmont Veterans Remember

Veterans from across several generations in Belmont, including our own Co-Rector, Paul Minor, were interviewed for a special project of the Belmont Media Center, the Belmont Veterans Memo rial Committee, and the history students and teachers from Belmont High School.

The result is a beautiful film and tribute to these heroes

The film was premiered last week at the Town Hall in Belmont, and is now available online. Follow this link to view the film.
