In the fall of 2015, All Saints was presented with a unique opportunity to repurpose our rectory. The Vestry had the foresight and vision to want to expand our mission in the community, while also ensuring that the structure could be reverted back to its original use as a rectory should the need arise in the future. After careful deliberations and research, the Vestry approved for the structure to be used as the first (and currently, only) Oxford House for women in Southern Maryland. Oxford House, Inc. was founded in 1975 as self-governed, democratically-run houses for providing housing, fellowship, self-reliance and self-respect for recovering individuals. It has a success rate of 87%, one of the highest in the recovery community. The “Oxford House – All Saints” was blessed by Assistant Bishop of Maryland, The Rt. Rev. Chilton Knudsen, in a ceremony on April 10, 2016. Bishop Knudsen is nationally known for her expertise in issues related to addiction and recovery, so it was especially meaningful that the house was blessed by someone familiar with the issues.
Oxford House – All Saints was chartered on November 1, 2015 and can accommodate up to 8 residents. For more information or to apply for residency, call 443-975-3034.
