All Saints Newsletters

All Saints publishes two newsletters regularly, which keep members and visitors informed about what is going on. 

  • Grace Notes is a weekly short email newsletter (see below), focusing on what is happening in the upcoming few weeks.  3-4 pages.
  • Calling All Saints is a periodic longer news publication, distributed by email and by postal mail, with longer pieces that cover recent milestones and events, and more detail on the major upcoming events of the season. 8-16 pages. Back issues are online in the Document Archive

Please download a sample issue of these newsletters to see what we're up to!

In addition, we have several brochures that describe our church, our community ministries, our volunteer opportunities, and the ways people can help the church.

If you would like to be put on the mailing list for our newsletters, please contact us.

It is just over a year since Robin Poppoff began her two year pastoral placement at All Saints’. You might recall that just after we formally inaugurated Robin’s ministry among us, an article in Calling All Saints explained much of the background that led to Bishop and Mary and the Commission on Ministry requesting that Robin fulfill her field education requirement from the School for Deacons among us. Since then Robin has provided many invaluable services, particularly in organizing and standardizing some of our liturgical practices and training or in-servicing our liturgical ministers.
At this juncture Robin will begin to take on some additional functions within the Sunday liturgy, such as introducing the Confession and preparing the gifts at the altar. While these are relatively small parts, they are intended to prepare her for a greater liturgical role when she is finally ordained a deacon.  TPG+
EDECR Scholarship Project—our Diocesan Scholarship Project provides assistance to children who are not able to pay fees for schooling, in Africa. This is the last week of our Outreach Drive for the Scholarship Project, this year, and homemade jams will again be sold this Sunday to support this wonderful mission.  Please take the opportunity after the Service to sample some of the tasty and delicious homemade jams that are available--all proceeds from sales go to the Scholarship Project.

CAPELLA SF - Saturday, October 4, 8 p.m.
Ragnar Bohlin, world famous director of the San Francisco Symphony Chorus, has established a new all-professional choir.  Their first concert this past spring was considered the most important choral event of recent years.  We are thrilled that Cappella SF will offer their newest program first at All Saints’!  Entitled “Autumn Light,” this promises to be an unforgettable evening.  Mr. Bohlin writes: “I am very excited about the program which will reflect the change of seasons, moving into fall, starting with the light and moving to a more pensive state of mind.  We will open with J.S. Bach’s jubilant and virtuosic “Singet dem Herrn”, and through Joseph Rheinberger’s beautiful “Mass in E-Flat” for double chorus we will gradually move towards more introspective music, ending with the haunting last movement of Alfred Schnittke’s “Psalms of Repentance.”  The program will also feature works by Arvo Pärt.  Tickets are $35 and available in advance at
Our next choral Evensong will feature a wonderful setting of the famous prayer attributed to St. Francis (“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace”) by famed American composer Gerald Near.  The choir will also sing the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis in F by George Dyson, featuring solos by Michael Beetham as well as one of our two guest youths, Alexander Harding Bradley, who formerly sang with the Vienna Boys Choir!  Rector Terry Gleeson will officiate.  As always a lovely reception hosted by Joan and Jodi Scherer will follow.  Invite your friends!
