Readings for December 3rd

Women at the Well - Women's Group

Women of all ages are welcome to join our “Women at the Well” group. We meet weekly on Monday mornings between 10:15-11:15am on Zoom, to pray with the Book of Proverbs through Lectio Divina.

God made us for community, to share His love, so this is also a time for laughter, friendship, support, encouragement and spiritual growth.

If you are interested, please contact

Tuesday Evening Lectio Divina Group - Diving into the Sunday Readings

The traditional monastic practice of Lectio Divina (Latin for “holy/divine reading”) provides a way to enter into Sacred Scripture as a living Word for our time. Lectio Divina becomes more about divine listening than divine reading when we take the time to do it. This is why we pray Lectio Divina — to become better listeners of the Lord, to hear more clearly what God is asking of us - opening ourselves to peace, gratitude, and living rooted in Christ.


Holy Mass for the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception

All are invited to join the Archbishop at Rosenkranz-Basilika in Steglitz at 6 pm on December 8th to celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Friday Adoration and Spiritual Direction at All Saints

We all face trials and carry burdens in our journey of life. However, as Christians, we do not carry these crosses alone. There is One who walks with us, helps us and brings peace to our hearts, if we turn to Him. So, come and find rest and peace before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. 

Every 3rd, 4th & 5th Friday between 11am and 1pm, there will be Eucharistic Adoration in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel at All Saints Church (Hüttenweg 46, 14195 Berlin). Fr. Sylvester will also be available for individual prayer and spiritual direction.
