A Church History Committee has begun its work of sorting through the 110 years of the history of our parish and we are discovering some interesting things. We learned that the original building and site were purchased in 1903 for $1,000, with $200 down and annual payments of $100! Finding that first $200 required a bit of luck, judging by the then Bishop Morris’ report, but it got us started as the church we are today. Also, the bell that rings before every one of our services was originally from the old Woodstock School. So there are many details and stories about our parish and we of the committee believe that there are some of you out there who could add your stories to the legend of All Saints. We hope to hear from some of the long-time members; but though you may not have been here 20 to 50 years, the Church has been an important part of your life and we would like to hear the stories of your experience at All Saints. So jot down some meaningful period/experience or bring a picture that you want to share and let’s see how we may enrich the history of All Saints.
