Located at 504 North Camden Drive in Beverly Hills, California.

All Saints Church is an Episcopal church in Pasadena, California, and is affiliated with the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles. The current structure is the church’s third home for its activities.

The church has a reputation for being one of the most liberal churches in Southern California, as well as one of the largest Episcopal churches in the country. Political activism, according to former Rector Ed Bacon, “is in the DNA of the church.”

All Saints was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 as a Contributing Structure to the Pasadena Civic Center District by the National Park Service.

History

From 1922 to the present, the congregation first met at the Beverly Hills Hotel. A chapel was built four years later, in 1926. It became a parish in its own right in 1935.

Several decades later, in 1951, a new church was built, but the chapel was kept. Casavant Frères built the organ for the new church in 1951.

The church serves ‘The Monday Meal’ to 130-150 guests each week, many of whom are homeless. Lisa Lesniak, an artist, sold her paintings of homeless people in March 2012 to raise funds for the church.

Wednesday is Ash Wednesday. Along with the deacon of Church of the Good Shepherd, the deacon of All Saints’ offered ashes to passersby on the streets of Beverly Hills in 2015.
