Welcome to All Saints Episcopal Church. Whether you are searching for a Parish church to join or visit or whether you are just surfing by on the internet, we are glad that you found us.All Saints has been a spiritual home for residents of Bayside and the surrounding area for over 125 years. Today, members come from Bayside, Flushing, “Out on the Island” (That’s Long Island Code for anywhere east of Queens!) and as far away as New Jersey on a regular basis. Our membership reflects the wonderful cultural diversity of Queens, and is made up of people from nearly every walk of life, and many faith backgrounds. You do not have to be a life-long Episcopalian to be comfortable here. Chances are good that you will find someone a lot like yourself here. Speaking of comfort, feel free to come as you are!
So again, welcome to All Saints. Now that you have found the site, come in and “click around” for awhile to begin to get to know us. Better yet, come visit and join in worship this Sunday in person or on our livestream, at 10:00 AM every Sunday.
I Hope to see you soon,
Fr. Larry Byrne, Rector
Whether you are a first-time visitor, long-time parishioner, or somewhere in between, we we would be honored and enriched by your virtual presence at our weekly Sunday service livestreams, and offer you a sincere welcome home to this parish church. Although we are physically apart, we are together in heart and mind. The tomb could not hold God’s Son, and our current situation cannot conquer his people.

Major Tom and friends will be live from the Common Room at 7PM. All other performers are asked to send in videos before the show Tune in live at 7PM
On Palm Sunday, also known as “The Sunday of the Passion” we both literally and figuratively begin to walk through Holy Week. The service begins away from the main sanctuary. The story of the Triumphal Entry is read, palm branches are blessed, and we recall Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem by carrying the palms, singing a hymn and walking in procession to the main doors of the church which become symbolically the gates of Jerusalem.
