Our purpose is to love and glorify God in all areas of our lives, daring to reach out in a caring manner and striving to make disciples in the light of God’s truth. Our ministry to the world; we believe that in Matthew 28:19 and again in Acts 1:8, Christ gave a commission to His followers to bring the good news of salvation to all the world. Therefore, we as a church have partnered with 25 different missionaries and mission organizations that are evangelizing and teaching throughout the world. We work with them by providing monetary support and praying faithfully for them. We also encourage our members to be active in witnessing at home and/or involved in short or long-term mission activities.

All Saints Parish, established on July 1, 2009, is a cluster of seven Roman Catholic churches in the midcoast area of Maine. These seven churches formerly were six parishes with one mission. Bishop Richard J. Malone Pastoral Letter “Telling Anew the Story of Jesus Christ” written in 2005 set the stage for these former parishes to plan a new future together. After much work, communication, compromise, and planning the historical day of July 1, 2009 happened. More than 200 years of parish histories came together.
