    Words to Live By:
    "Collective wisdom depends on conversation and is
    most powerfully felt in the silences that arise within those conversations.”
    ~Alan Briskin

    May 24: "A Long View"
    9:30 a.m.: Chat opens - connect with others before the service!
    One Online Service at 10 a.m.
    Worship Leader: Ministerial Intern Ann Kadlecek

    So much is different in our lives than it was just a couple of months ago, and there is no question that these are difficult times. And yet, we are not the first to experience such challenges, and we will not be the last. If we step back and view the present moment in its context of past and future, what insights might such a long view offer us today?


    May 31: "Hindsight in 20/20"
    Guest Preacher: Claudia Highbaugh
    This Sunday morning will be a time for not so much looking at how things were in easier times, but using our memory as a tool to resist isolation, face challenges and embrace resilience. These are the tools we need all of the time to face our challenges with energy, good spirit and hope! Plan to share a smile and a memory with a loved one in the days that follow our service.

    9:30 a.m.: Chat opens - connect with others before the service!
    One Online Service at 10 a.m.
    Worship Leaders: Reverends Carolyn Patierno and Caitlin O'Brien

    The Reverend Claudia Highbaugh is our New London neighbor, retired from forty-five years of ministry in higher education. She is currently remaining isolated in a life of reading, offering thanksgivings for good health and independence and so many blessings.

  • Important Coronavirus Update

    Dear Souls,

    I know that you are all concerned about and paying close attention to the coronavirus’ advance in our country and right here in our communities, All Souls included.  In light of the additional information we’ve received the decision has been made to cancel all activities at All Souls until further notice. It’s a heartbreaking – but necessary – decision. It’s important to remember that it is only for the time being. This crisis will pass and in time we will be together in person in Unity Hall. And we will be proud that we made a decision to take care of all of us.

    LIVE STREAM OF SERVICES: Sundays at 10:00 a.m.

    We will be live streaming a half-hour long service every Sunday at 10 a.m.

    We hope to “see” many of you there / then.

    Pastoral Connections

    We are making every effort to stay connected to each other through this extraordinary time.

    Phone trees are being set up so that we stay in touch / check in with each other. That said, if you are feeling isolated, anxious, or lonely please be in touch with Reverend Caitlin at associate.minister@allsouls.net or 617-596-1853

    Here’s the hard part … until further notice:


    · In person worship services and faith formation classes are suspended.

    · All events are suspended including:

    o Tuesday AA meeting and Friday AlAnon meeting

    · Meetings with more than 3 people involved should meet via Zoom

    · Sharing Circles will be meeting via Zoom

    The office is closed and the staff will be working from home.

    These are uncertain and trying times but I have faith in your resilience and faithfulness. Remember: we’ve been talking about faith. The message has been: lean on your faith. Trust your faith.

    I know you know me as a “bright-sider” so I’ll share what I’m seeing as a silver lining: we’ll see just how connected we are. All Souls may not be in the building but the strength of our communion has always been meant to shine beyond our walls.  Be strong. Be well. And if you are neither, we are here still. Call. Reach out.

    With Love and blessing to each of you, dear dear Souls,

    Reverend Carolyn
