Welcome to All Saints’ Episcopal Church in the heart of the Monadnock Region
of southwestern New Hampshire. We welcome all people whether they are
life-long Episcopalians, from other denominations or faiths, or just searching
to make spiritual sense of life. We’re an active Christian community striving to
strengthen our faith and to contribute in a purposeful way to the welfare of
the world both near and far.
In addition to our Sunday services at 8am and 10am, there are many ways to get involved at All Saints’. We hope that our website will give you a sense of who we are and what we value and how much we want to share that with you.
Visitors are always welcome. We hope that you will find a spiritual home among
us whether you are passing through Peterborough or become a regular
member of our congregation. We want you to know that our doors are always
open to you!
Curious? Come on in! We would love for you to join us in worship.
A Heartfelt Thank You from Pastor Joel
Patty received this beautiful message from Pastor Joel, thanking all of us who sent in Christmas presents for the children. It is shared below, along with a photo he sent of all the kids' pictures in the shape of a heart.
Centro Victoria Home for children living in Christ
Today I come to all of you, giving thanks with all my heart for the generosity which you have had for this home during these times. Even though you had no obligation to help us, you have manifested to us the beauty of your big hearts, giving the children more than a smile and showing them the best of yourselves.
I know that I don't have the words to thank you but I know that God will do great things for you for the blessings and support that you have always had for this home. It is a demonstration of your goodness and your capacity for giving and caring that people around you are happy.
From the bottom of my heart, a thousand thanks and may life bless you with beautiful gifts as you have gifted us and much more.
Events in the lives of people are worthy of giving thanks every moment, all moments. Don't tire of being grateful, even for the littlest favor or for the least thing that happens.
You have shown us your beauty. From your good, you will receive good. We hope that this letter brings blessings.
We wish you you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
And may your families be blessed and thank you once more for your help for the Cortes Family so that we can help more children. We wish with all our hearts that in the years to come, we can do more for the children and remember that they are part of all of you.
Your friend, Joel Cortez
