Who is All Souls Episcopal Church?

We are a loving, vibrant Episcopal church in Mechanicsville, VA - just north of Richmond.  At All Souls, everyone is welcome!

We are a community who is welcomes the newcomer, enjoys spending time together - playing, laughing and learning, and works to help those who are struggling in this life.  We believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God.  We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.  We work to see the image of God in all people and to live The Way of Love, as taught by the life Jesus lived. 

If you are looking for a place to explore your relationship with God - to be in community with others who are trying to do the same, you may enjoy the community of All Souls Episcopal.  We worship in the Anglican Tradition, celebrating diversity, inclusiveness, and in the Spirit of fellowship that motivates us to live fully into the people God has uniquely created us to be. 

 

Meet Our Vicar 

Katherine DoughertyOur priest at All Souls is The Rev. Katherine Dougherty.  She joined us in July of 2017.  Katherine was born and raised in Virginia and in the Episcopal Church.  Prior to being ordained, she taught in both public and private schools. Katherine received her M.Div from The School of Theology at The University of the South, Sewanee and was ordained in 2017.  

Katherine is a collaborative leader, who enjoys working with others to imagine and create ways of spreading God's love for everyone.  Her vision for ministry is to encourage and empower folks to actively engage with the God who created them and loves them dearly and to share that love with others.  

In her off hours, Katherine enjoys being outside - in the mountains, on the water or spending time with family and friends.  She loves to laugh and play.  She is also thankful to be called by God and the people of All Souls Episcopal Church to walk this journey we call faith.  Email her at: revkdougherty@gmail.com

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!
