All Saints Catholic Church Lanchester Durham
Parish Profile  

The golden rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do to you." (Matthew 7:12) is the ideal which All Saints is striving to achieve. We are always looking outward, responding to and meeting the needs of diverse and sometimes marginalized groups.

We aim to be an inclusive parish, serving a community, serving everyone with love, sharing in true compassion "the joy and the hope, the grief and the pain' as part of our option for the poor.

Intent on living and proclaiming God's love, advocating justice and peace, we encourage and support the many individuals and groups who work tirelessly within the parish. Most important are the spiritual needs of our parishioners, met in a variety of ways.

Our Parish is a committed, integral part of a strong local community, supporting local projects for those in need. The Gospel requires us too, as God's family to show concern for the needs of the world community acknowledging that we all have responsibilities towards one another.
