We are a traditional Anglican parish in The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth, which includes close to sixty traditional Anglican parishes in north Texas, several parishes in other parts of Texas, and one in Louisiana.
The Reverend William Thomas Estes (“Father Bill”) is our Rector (local Priest and Pastor) at All Saints, and The Right Reverend Ryan Spencer Reed is our Bishop, and the fourth Bishop of our diocese.
All Saints was received by the Bishop of Dallas as a new Mission in February 1876, after he had met with a small local group of faithful Christians in 1875.
Construction of our first building began shortly after the new mission was established. The cornerstone was laid on the Centennial anniversary of our country, July 4, 1876. Eventually the Bishop and All Saints would sell that property to the City of Weatherford, where they would eventually build a new City Hall.
Construction on our current building began in 1923, and it was completed in 1924.
All Saints has a long and distinguished history in Weatherford and Parker County. Among many others, Mary Martin was a member here, and her funeral was held here in 1990. In 1932 she had her infant son Larry Hagman (born 1931) baptized here in this building. Douglas Chandor was a member, and served on our vestry.
We have current members who have been at All Saints their entire lives, some of whose families’ history at All Saints goes back several generations. And yet we also have first generation Texans, who have come to us from other places. And we have people of all ages and walks of life.
The parish family of All Saints is warm, welcoming, loving, and extends a heartfelt welcome to you and yours. You are most welcome here among us, and you are loved by God. We would love to have the opportunity to get to know you better. Please reach out to us.
If you have further questions about All Saints, our diocese, Anglicanism in general, or even the Christian faith, Father Estes would love to make time to visit with you.
God bless you!
