The Rev. Douglas E. Woodridge passed away on Saturday, March 11. Father Woodridge came to All Saints’ in 1968 as Assistant Priest and Youth Director. He served in that capacity until 1979 when he became Rector of St. Michael’s-by-the-Sea in Carlsbad until his retirement in 1996. In early 2002, Bishop Hughes appointed Father Woodridge as interim rector of All Saints’. He served in that capacity until Thanksgiving 2002 which was after Father McClaskey had resigned and before Father Tony was appointed rector.

March Events

New City Sinfonia
Sunday, March 19, at 3:00pm

Now in its 31st season, The New City Sinfonia will present an hour-long afternoon concert at All Saints’ on Sunday, March 19, at 3:00pm. Entitled “A Paris Connection,” the program will feature music written in or for Paris, including France Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 83 (“The Hen”), and Le Roi S’Amuse, by French composer Léo Delibes. As Haydn’s fame, as well as his reputation for musical wit and inventiveness spread, audiences in several countries clamored for his music.

Director Daniel Ratelle is the founding conductor of the Sinfonia, and also teaches Music at Mesa College. Excerpts of past concerts can be found on You Tube, under "New City Sinfonia."

Join us for a delightful spring afternoon to enjoy the music of Haydn and Delibes, Suggested donation $10 — supports the Music Outreach Ministry at All Saints’

Stations and Benediction
Fridays in Lent

On Fridays in Lent, we will offer the devotional service of Stations of the Cross followed by Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, beginning at 6:00 PM in the church. Afterward we will gather in the Parish Hall for fellowship and a simple supper.
If you're able to provide soup, salad, and/or bread for one of these gatherings, please make a note on the sign-up sheet in the Parish Hall.

Parish life

Do you enjoy using your phone to take pictures of where you are? We're looking for photos of our parish life at All Saints’: parishioners as they arrive for Mass, or after Mass as they congregate on the patio, or are in the Parish Hall enjoying fellowship during the coffee hour, or at all parish events such as upcoming All Saints’ Sunday. If you do, please email your photos to Louise Lawson at:

We, at All Saints’, have a long time tradition in our prayer chain. We feel that as we pray together and pass our thoughts and prayers to God that we deepen our relationship, not only to God, but ourselves as his servants.
Please consider joining the prayer chain ministry. Through prayer we can possibly make a difference in the lives of our Parish family and friends. Contact Edith Thrumston.

Prayer: The world's greatest wireless connection.


On your next visit to All Saints’ take a walk to the corner of Pennsylvania and 6th Avenues. There you will find that the church’s cornerstone and the letters on the cornerstone have been repainted; and that All Saints’ seal has been recreated in bronze. In the words of one of All Saints’ parishioners— ”classy”. In the December/January newsletter issue an article will describe the various elements of the seal.

Want to be an Acolyte?
We have a pressing need for additional Acolytes in order to continue our worship in the manner to which we have all grown accustom. This is particularly true for the 10:30 Mass. If you are seeking an opportunity to serve and think that you might be interested in serving at the Altar, come by the Acolyte room before or after the service to learn what we do.
