Members of the All Saints Catholic Community make up the Association known as Friends of All Saints. It is a corporate entity that has leased the parish facilities from the District of Zehlendorf, which inherited it from the American Military in September, 1994. The Friends of All Saints signed a ten-year lease with the District of Zehlendorf and intends to operate the facility or purchase it by 2014. In order to further secure our presence at Hüttenweg we will call on your financial support and your volunteer service. The envelopes contained in the missalettes, stamped “Friends of All Saints” are used to designate contributions to the Association. Your undesignated contributions go to the Archdiocese or to worthy purposes as designated by the Archdiocese of Berlin.

It is the expressed purpose of the Friends of All Saints to be an English-language community open to all. In addition to the Catholic Community this facility is home to the Protestant Faith Fellowship, which worships here at 12:00 on Sundays; the Crossway International Baptist Church, which worships at 14:00 on Sundays; a Berlin Jewish group which worships in the community room on Friday evenings; as well as to a variety of English-language community activities, including Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, VFW, and an English Montessori pre-school. Some groups pay no rent, but provide voluntary service in exchange for meeting space. The Boy Scouts, for example, do yard work. The range of service will gradually be expanded as the community grows and will become an integral part of the Zehlendorf and Berlin scenes. Our facilities are available for rent for private purposes.

It has been a long uphill struggle to gain control of Hüttenweg 46, but the rewards have already surpassed the tribulations. Our community has a great future and we welcome you to be a part of it.
