Poet in Residence: Peggy Eastman

"I express my belief that each of us has a divine spark deep inside us."

All Saints Parish is blessed to have a poet worshiping with us. Peggy Eastman has inspired and nurtured us with her beautiful writing for years. Her poems introduce us to Seasons, delve into the mysteries of the Church and help open hearts in prayerful petitions to the Lord. We thank her for this generous service and are proud to share her work with others. You can read Peggy's story here:
