All Saints Episcopal Church
has been in operation in Pasadena for nearly a century. Considered one of southern California's largest church communities, it is liberal-spirited church
committed to issues of social peace and justice and to the spirit of creativity in all aspects of life. All Saints sponsors several choirs, tutoring and mentoring programs for Pasadena school children, and support groups for parents, among many other activities. Its historic stone church, located across the street from Pasadena City Hall
anchors the lovely grounds of Plaza de las Fuentes
. The church is also home to All Saints Children's Center
, a childcare center accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAYEC). It provides full- and part-time care for children ages six weeks to five years. The center strives for diversity among staff, children, and families with respect to ethnicity, race, culture, religion, socio-economic status, and sexual orientation. The center adopts a developmental approach to instruction, meaning that activities are very hands-on and participatory.
