BEHIND-THE-SCENES IN THE CHURCH
You will find out when you learn the rich history of All Saints Parish! When you enter the Church you will be in the Narthex where you can begin your tour. Learn about the placement of the Immersion’s Baptismal Font – why you enter and exit facing the altar (the base of the altar represents flames of the Holy Spirit), and the Crucifix.
Continue your tour, which can include the beautiful statues of our African Saints, the Holy Family and the Mother of Africa. Behind the Mother of Africa Statue is the quilt that depicts the road of freedom. Can you guess where the road leads to?
