In 1886, All Saints was the first Episcopalian congregation to form in Pasadena, CA, a town, by that time, that had become a prime winter residence for wealthy Midwesterners and those from the East. An affluent and cultured city by 1886, it does not surprise one to learn that the All Saints Church #1 had costly stained-glass windows designed by the renowned New York manufacturer, Tiffany and Company. These precious windows were removed from the old church at its demolition in 1923, and transferred to the new one in similar locations. This second church, completed in 1924, was designed to reflect English Gothic precedents by its well-known architects, Johnson, Kaufmann and Coate.

Building Notes

All Saints Episcopal Church #1 was built in 1888-1889, and was torn down in 1923.

All Saints Episcopal Church #2 was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.


Jane P. Ellison in her text on the history of the All Saints Church interior, said of 1991 alterations: "As a part of a 1991 renovation of All Saints Church, and to make the worship service more accessible, a rood screen separating the nave from the chancel (the parishioners from the priests, in other words) was removed. The top section was raised and now consists of the rood beam and cross. Other remnants of the screen became the altar, flower stands and the altar liturgy stand." (See Jane P. Ellison, "The Architecture of Faith A Guide to the Interior of All Saints Church," accessed 09/10/2015.)
