All Saints had over 130 chapel services in which 180 students lead worship. Each week we pray for more than 20 specific All Saints families. Every All Saints family is prayed for once during the school year. All Chapel services during the school year were live streamed to the classrooms and homes. For 15 years, Upper School students and faculty have traveled across the nation working with various organizations for their Summer Mission Trip. This year we will serve the Tyler community. We increased classes offered for Middle School Faith Formation. All Saints strengthened the Spiritual Life of the school with the addition of an Assistant Chaplain.

We live our Episcopal identity through five habits of heart and mind: We love, We worship, We welcome, We serve, We question.
