On behalf of All Saints Anglican Cathedral, Long Beach, I welcome you. You are invited to join us for worship. It would be a privilege to meet you! Our purpose is, “Reaching Long Beach and beyond with the transforming love of Jesus Christ.” Our mission is, “Building a church community that glorifies God, follows Jesus, and is empowered by the Holy Spirit for mission to reconcile a broken world to God.” We drink deep from one river that has three streams: Scripture (our authoritative guide in faith), Sacraments (our ancient practices and rhythms in faith), and Spirit (our peace and power in faith). May you experience God’s “Never Stopping, Never Giving up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.”

“According to the early Christians, the church doesn’t exist in order to provide a place where people can pursue their private spiritual agendas and develop their own spiritual potential. Nor does it exist in order to provide a safe haven in which people can hide from the wicked world and ensure that they themselves arrive safely at an otherworldly destination. Private spiritual growth and ultimate salvation come rather as the byproduct of the main, central overarching purpose for which God has called and is calling us … That through the church God will announce to the world that he is indeed its wise, loving and just creator; that through Jesus he has defeated the powers that corrupt and enslave it; and that by his Spirit he is at work to heal and renew it.” Simply Christian - N.T. Wright

Mass of Healing and Hope
The twinkling lights and appropriately merry songs of Christmas can, in cruel contrast, deepen darkness and gloom felt by those struggling with grief, pain, depression, and illness. For this reason, we again will be holding a Mass of Healing and Hope. If the holiday season brings sadness and pain, I invite you to this special service. If you would like to show your care and support to those who may be having difficulty during the holidays, I invite you, also, to this service.
Preparing for Christmas is a busy season for most of us, but may we intentionally take this opportunity to seek God together and surround in worship and prayer those with heavy and hurting hearts.
