A warm home.  Astonishingly, there are many homes in our backyard whose owners lack this basic need.  The All Souls community went out to winterize some homes for the coming cold.  Check out our project pictures and see what else All Souls does to serve as Jesus taught us.

All Souls Blessing of the Animals

Responding to God, the Community, and the World

All Souls Episcopal Church in Mechanicsville VAAll Souls Episcopal Church believes in doing. Time is set aside to give of our talents and resources in meaningful and material, ways. All Souls parishioners provide and take sack lunches to the homeless, help with clean-up at various local sites, work with shelter animals, visit with convalescing patients, do yard work at local schools, and help to winterize homes in the area.  In the past two years, through our community garden, we donated over three thousands pounds of fresh produce to local food pantries.

Other projects include mentoring and teaching at a nearby elementary school, taking part in Habitat for Humanity build days, and assisting with monthly ARC-sponsored dances in the community. We have a  yearly Blessing of the Animals, and many of our members take part in CARITAS hosting. Members who are unable to participate in some of the more physical activities, still support the work of the parish by providing food and drink, and through enthusiastic encouragement.

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 are an Episcopal congregation, celebrating diversity, inclusiveness, and the fellowship of believers, motivating each other to acts of love and good works. We welcome you to our faith-based community.
