The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Spirituality, Community, Outreach

We are a growing, vibrant Episcopal church in Mechanicsville, Virginia. At All Souls, we serve as Jesus taught us. Our membership is actively engaged in the community, and in carrying out the Christian mission of God's hands on earth. We worship in the Anglican Tradition, celebrating diversity and inclusiveness, and the Spirit of fellowship that motivates and supports us to live fully into the people God has uniquely created us to be.

We worship at Messiah Lutheran Church, located at 8154 Atlee Road on Sunday mornings. We welcome you to our faith-based community. Please join us.

Ash Wednesday and Lent

Ash Wednesday is a day of prayer and repentance, and for some, fasting. On Ash Wednesday, ashes made from burning the palms from the previous year's Palm Sunday are applied to the forehead of participants with the words "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you will return."

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent - a 40 day observation that recalls the 40 days Jesus was fasting in the wilderness.  For that reason, many do fast or give up something for Lent.  Others take on something additional, something more mindful, a more positive habit or practice for Lent.  We can observe a Holy Lent with self-examination, prayer, fasting, reading and reflecting, and practicing works of love.

Maundy Thursday marks the end of Lent.

Our Ministries

Our firm belief is God is alive and working hard in our community to bring about healing. We also believe we have been called to join God in his work.

Our ministries reach into the community of All Souls as well as the broader Mechanicsville area.  Our Worship ministries includes members in music, as lay readers and Eucharistic servers, altar guild, greeters, and ushers.  Formation leaders work with children, youth, and adult education.  Our Hospitality team provides a tremendous service to welcome all into the life of All Souls, and our Pastoral Care team provides assistance to those that need all kinds of care.  Our outreach programs provide food for the hungry from our Community Garden, with the Sack Hunger Bags, and through the Caritas program with St. Anne's Catholic Church in Ashland, VA.  Other outreach programs help winterize homes in November, Bless Animals in October, provide a Halloween Party for Peter Paul Development Center in Church Hill, assist with school supplies and clothing for students at J.E.B. Stuart School in Richmond, and other small deeds of kindness.  

You are welcome to explore with us needs in our community, and help out any time!  Thank you very much!
