Mission Strategy

We, the people of All Saints Parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, are living members of the body of Jesus Christ. 
As Jesus gathered his disciples, took bread and blessed it, and then offered his body for us in order to bring reconciliation, forgiveness and healing,
so may we offer ourselves in Christ's name.

Our mission strategy, adopted in 2016, is summarized below.

History

It was 1897 when folks started gathering in homes around Whitman to worship. Withing a short period of time, the Sunday before All Saints Day 1897, the first regular service was held. . In October 1908, the first Parish meeting voted, "to purchase for $2000, property on the northerly side of Park Avenue from Clara M. Corthell." This land was occupied by an old machine shop. "The turning of the first sod for the new church cellar took place on the fifth Sunday in July 31, 1910. The cornerstone was laid by Bishop Lawrence, in an impressive service. The stone is engraved with a cross and "1910."
We've been welcoming people ever since!

LaFarge Windows

All Saints Parish is pleased to display its beautiful Mason Memorial windows that face out on Whitman Town Park created by John La Farge.

John La Farge, discoverer of a new stained glass technology, patented the opalescent glass manufacturing process in 1880. By mixing bits of various materials into the molten glass, La Farge was able to produce unique visual effects. Through the use of opalescent, ripple and confetti glass in these windows the distinctive genius of John La Farge shines through. Glass jewels add to the artistic effects. Some of the glass used in these windows was experimental in nature. The angels’ robes in one window consist of a purple confetti glass which is believed to be one-of-a-kind.
