All Saints' Episcopal Church has been in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco since 1903. We have been at the forefront of important social movements and change: intentional racial integration in the early 1950s, the Summer of Love and intentional welcome of the counterculture in the late 1960s, intentional welcome to the gay community in the 1970s, and courageous and compassionate care during the AIDS crisis that began in the 1980s.

 

Our Anglo-Catholic identity and practice means we recognize the presence of Jesus Christ in everyone, especially the stranger and the estranged, even as we recognize the Real Presence of  Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Jesus on the Altar and in the Tabernacle.

All Saints' members range in age from 1 to 103, and we aspire to reflect what our neighbors look like and who they are.  

What some of our members say -

I walk into this beautiful church and I am struck over and over again by the richness of our heritage of love and care for those within our open circle. It is a circle that is open to accept the new who want to join us and to care for those who have been with us along time, as well as those just passing through.                               - Brenda Nelson

When I wandered into All Saints' forty years ago, I had never even heard the words "Anglo-Catholic." I found a place of beauty and a place where I could be useful.                                  - Margaret Hamilton
