OUR LEADERS

 As the Cathedral of the Anglican Diocese in New England, we’re committed to expressing the ethos of an Anglican way of being Christian–some call it “convergent,” some call it “three streams.” We call it “living the hope of the reconciled church

All Saints is the place where our Bishop lands when he’s not on the road encouraging our churches.
