"The first direct references to All Saints occur in the Easter vestry minutes of both St. Paul's and St. James in 1867. The main concern expressed at both vestries was over what was perceived as the dangerous increase of Ritualism throughout the Canadian Church" (p. 21). "Finally in 1906 the death-agony was over: All Saints closed its doors forever. The building was very shortly afterward sold to the parish of St. Luke, to be used as a parish hall, and both the fixtures and the remaining parishioners of All Saints were dispersed among the other Anglican churches in the city. Why did All Saints fail ? Lack of growth, financial problems, and Protestant suspicions are obvious suggestions. .... There is, however, another story to be told about this parish. It is a story of hard work, dedication, selflessness, and courage in the face of overwhelming odds. One cannot read about all the efforts of [F.] Prime, [R.W.] Rayson, [A.] Spencer and a small band of faithful parishioners without feeling some admiration. Theirs is a story which must be placed alongside the story of All Saints demise, particularly when Christians look at this parish's history. After all, the Christian, more than anyone, should realize that success is not always victory, and failure is not always defeat" (p. 28-29).
