Why Red Doors?

 

              Why Red Doors?


When you enter All Saints to worship or pray, you will pass through our bright red doors on your way into church. Painting church doors red is a widespread tradition in Episcopal churches. Historically, the red doors of a church have always been a symbol of sanctuary promising refuge to those in peril. The color red tells the wayfaring soul you are protected here from spiritual harm.

Jesus Christ is our refuge. The red doors at All Saints remind us that our parish community too must be a refuge for all those who enter through them. In this holy place, there will be no outcasts. Our doors are open to all!
