History of All Saints

(i)            Founded on Nov. 1, 1893, All Saints Episcopal Church has worshipped on its present site on Park Avenue between Broad and Grand Avenues since 1896. All Saints became a parish in 1925.

(ii)           We are currently without a full-time Rector.

            John Sposato and Annie Byerly are the current wardens.

(iii)            The Rev’d Norman Spicer, the fourth rector, served from 1951-1978. During his tenure the parish house, Davidson Hall, was built (1956) and the interior of the church was redesigned. A transept was added to provide space for the organ pipes.

(iv)            Davidson Hall was built especially for theater and concerts. The Leonia Players Guild had its home at All Saints from 1956-1988. The Leonia Second Sunday Chamber Musicians performs at All Saints each March.
