The COVID-19 pandemic has made it necessary to temporarily discontinue meeting in our historic buildings. In March 2020, all activities at All Hallows were moved online.
Online Daily Morning Prayer – and Ante Communion on Sundays – follows Rite I of The Book of Common Prayer. These services are well attended by parishioners and visitors from several states, and they include both music and a homily/Bible study by our Rector, Fr. Jeff. Following Morning Prayer, participants enjoy a virtual “coffee hour” and fellowship.
There also is Worship live-streamed from the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Baltimore at 11:00 am on Sundays.
Many educational and social activities at All Hallows also are now available online.
Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, onsite services at All Hallows were as follows:
THE BRICK CHURCH
Dating from 1729, the Brick Church was built in a simple Georgian style. During the 1880s it was renovated to suit the Victorian tastes of its parishioners. A fire in 1940 left only the vestry room and walls of the church standing. With the aid of records and drawings of the earlier building obtained by historians and archivists from the Maryland Historical Society, Maryland Diocesan Library, Peabody Library, Pratt Library, and Johns Hopkins University, the rebuilt church was restored to its original colonial-era style.
A Sung Service of Holy Eucharist following Rite II of The Book of Common Prayer. Sunday mornings.
Sunday School, held prior to Holy Eucharist to allow for youth participation in the entire service.
Children’s Chapel, offered young-child-friendly instruction on the Gospel during the pre-Eucharist portion of the Sunday morning service.
Adult Christian Formation, three Sundays each month.
Our Chapel-of-Ease was built from 1860 through 1865, construction having been delayed by the Civil War. It was built to lessen travel distance for those living in the western side of the Parish before automobiles existed.
A casual “come as you are” Service of Holy Eucharist following Rite II of The Book of Common Prayer, Saturday afternoons.
A Said Service of Holy Eucharist following Rite I of The Book of Common Prayer, celebrated Sunday mornings.
Resumption of onsite services at All Hallows will eventually occur in accordance with Diocesan and government guidelines and may unfold in transitional formats, including outdoor worship as weather allows.
