Job Description
All are welcome at All Saints’ Episcopal Church and Day School, where you will find a community diverse in many ways: conservatives and liberals, seniors and young families, singles, and those in committed partnerships of different sexual orientations, from different economic and cultural backgrounds. How do we maintain this “Big Tent” in such polarized times? By setting aside partisanship and focusing on the dignity of every human being, through the knowledge of the teachings of Jesus and the Episcopal “Via Media” or middle way.

We are known for some of the finest traditional Christian music in the Valley, as part of our commitment to offer inspiring and traditional worship services. In addition to regular Sunday morning services, our gifted choirs and organists lead monthly Evensong (September-April), as well as special Lenten and Advent services.

Our mission to pray, learn, serve, and connect encourages us to live out our lives actively in the world around us. All Saints’ parishioners are engaged in dozens of ministries, not only within the parish family but through meaningful partnerships with a variety of community organizations and efforts including NourishPHX, the Perryville Prison ministry and St. Paul’s Church and School in Haiti.

All Saints’ is one of the largest Episcopal churches in the Diocese of Arizona and the home of a 500+ student day school. Founded as a mission of All Saints’ Episcopal Church, All Saints’ Episcopal Day School is one of the most highly respected, independent pre-kindergarten through grade eight schools in the Southwest. This distinction can be attributed to the challenging environment, the unique learning opportunities we create for our students, our passionate faculty and staff, and our inclusive community. All Saints’ is progressive yet adheres to traditional ideals that allow its students to develop in “mind, body and soul.” The three core tenets of the Day School are: community, character cultivation, and academic excellence. With care and commitment, the experienced faculty follows a strong curriculum of reading, written expression, math, science, social studies, Spanish, technology, religion, music, art, and physical fitness.

All Saints’ is located on Central Avenue in the heart of a beautiful and historic residential section of Phoenix, the state capital of Arizona. The All Saints’ property abuts the historic, tree-lined Murphy Bridle Path, enjoyed by walkers, runners, and the occasional horseback rider. The neighborhood surrounding All Saints’ is residential with a mix of single-family homes and multifamily developments. The North Mountain Phoenix Preserve is a short distance to the northeast, and the midtown commercial district is located to the south along Central Avenue.
