If you’re reading this, chances are you’re thinking about visiting All Souls, or you just want to know more about this growing Anglican parish in Wheaton, Illinois.
As our name says, we are Anglicans—proud of our long and rich association with the Church of England. Much closer to home, we belong to the Diocese of Quincy (Illinois) led by our bishop, Alberto Morales.
As Christians, we take a conservative view of God, his Word, and the Gospel of his son Jesus, learning about his work in setting us free from sin, death, the devil, and the world; and how we are free to re-engage the world in loving service and in the work of proclaiming the freedom we have come to know.
While we are serious about how we celebrate our liturgical worship and traditional music, you may come as you are, and from wherever you are in life. All Souls is truly a grace-filled place where you can feel comfortable, befriended, loved, and not judged for who you are or where you are in your journey.
There is something for everyone. Downstairs, teachers are helping children understand the Gospel in the context of the larger biblical narrative as they learn to worship together. Our junior and senior high students are learning who they are in Christ and the many ways they live the abundant life as both individuals and as a community. Upstairs, college students and adults can take advantage of a rich curriculum of Biblically-centered teaching, exploring our faith as Christians and legacy as Anglicans.
Of course, there’s the picnics, soup suppers, brunches, showers, Bible studies, book groups, and coffee hours that draw us closer together as a community.
If you need to talk to someone, about anything, please feel free to contact us at anytime. We hope to see you soon.
