Explore Your Faith
Make me know your ways, O Lord. Teach me your paths. (Psalm 25:4)
Faith exploration is a life-long experience, attained by the grace of God and in the company of others. At All Saints Parish we realize that adults learn in a variety of ways and from a variety of sources. For that reason, we try to offer an array of options designed to nurture spiritual growth. Unless otherwise noted, all programs take place at All Saints Parish.
