Thanks, Pasadena Weekly!

All Saints Church 132 N. Euclid Ave., Pasadena
(626) 796-1172 |

In November 1882, 11 people gathered in a local home for church services that became so popular they outgrew the living room and forced the group to buy a building on Colorado Boulevard and Garfield Avenue; the church was named All Saints. Four years later, the church outgrew that building and moved to its current home at 132 N. Euclid Ave. In 1923, the church outgrew that 600-seat structure and built a new one. Today, All Saints remains one of the few socially conscious local churches, sponsoring numerous programs and services that aim to eliminate racism and homophobia, support veterans, educate the community about the plight of immigrants, abolish the death penalty, protect the environment and assist the area’s poor and homeless.
