Serving the Lord in Hillsboro since 1852

Welcome to All Saints! We are a community of Episcopal Christians who gather in Hillsboro, Oregon on Sunday mornings and seek to live lives faithful to God every day of the week.  

We invite you to worship on Sunday mornings. The church building is located at 372 NE Lincoln Street in downtown Hillsboro, on the corner of 4th & Lincoln.  The church sanctuary can be entered from Lincoln Street.  The church office door faces the parking lot on the west side of the building. 

We celebrate the Holy Eucharist each Sunday at 10:00 AM.  There are special services on Holy Days throughout the year.  Sunday School is led by volunteers, and it's offered most weeks during the first half of the worship service.  Children are welcome in the worship service, and clipboards with activities based on the Sunday's Bible readings are available for all children to use.

We also enjoy "coffee hour" after worship each Sunday.  You are invited to the Parish Hall for a hot beverage, a bite to eat, and conversation.  It's a great way to take time to get to know the community.   And, every 3rd Sunday of the month, we enjoy a potluck luncheon during coffee hour.   

 We pray Morning Prayer & study the Bible each Wednesday at 9am.  This takes place in the Guild Room (inside the building, across from the church office).  We use the Book of Common Prayer, and we follow the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL), a three-year cycle .  Bible study focuses on the gospel selection for the upcoming Sunday.  All of the lectionary readings can be found at www.lectionarypage.net

We share the church building with Misión Todos Los Santos, a Spanish-speaking Episcopal mission.  Todos Los Santos meets in the sanctuary to worship every Sunday at 1:00pm.  The Rev. Wilson Ferreira is Vicar of Todos Los Santos and also serves as Westside Latino Missioner for the Diocese of Oregon.   

 Come and see what's happening among the people of All Saints!

As part of the Anglican tradition, we follow a calendar rich with history - with the different liturgical seasons, the colorful altar vestments, and commemorating the saints' days throughout the year. We are an authentic community, devoted to God and each other, and we express this love through worship and service. 

Service to our community:

William Temple House West [WTHW]           Food Pantry is open every Tuesday from 4 to 7 pm.  This food pantry is staffed by dedicated volunteers representing a variety of churches & non-religious affiliations in Hillsboro.   WTHW is an emergency food assistance program open to residents of Washington County.  New volunteers are always welcome, and you don't have to be a member of All Saints to help!  On Tuesdays, people are needed to pick up & transport food from the Oregon Food Bank; stock the pantry; and assist with the distribution of food.  We strive to be a place of welcome and grace.  Call our church office at (503) 648-2514 if you would like to volunteer, or if you would like more information.   

LENT
Lent is a solemn observance in the liturgical year of many Christian denominations, lasting for a period of approximately six weeks leading up to Easter Sunday.  
The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer-through prayer, penance, repentance, almsgiving, and self-denial.  Its institutional purpose is heightened in the annual commemoration of Holy Week, marking the death and resurrection of Jesus, which recalls the events of the Bible when Jesus is crucified on Good Friday, which then culminates in the celebration of Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ during Lent, many of the faithful commit to fasting or giving up certain types of luxuries as a form of penitence.
Some churches remove flowers from their altars, while crucifixes, religious statues and other elaborate religious symbols are often veiled in violet fabrics in solemn observance of the event.  Lent is traditionally described as lasting for forty days, in commemoration of the forty days which, according to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, Jesus spent fasting in the desert before the beginning of his public ministry, where he endured temptation by the Devil. 

 

COLORS AND SYMBOLS OF LENT 

The color used in the sanctuary for most of Lent is purple, red violet, or dark violet.  These colors symbolize both the  pain and suffering leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus as well as the suffering of humanity and the world under sin.  Purple is also the color of royalty, and so anticipated through the suffering and death of Jesus the coming resurrection and hope of newness that will be celebrated in the Resurrection on Easter Sunday.
