A BRIEF HISTORY OF ALL SAINTS’ CHURCH, JAIPUR, M.I. ROAD
“O God, the Eternal Wisdom, who didst call the Blessed Saints to Thy Truths, Bless the school, named in their honour, that it may ever stand for what is true, beautiful and good. Fill it with Thy Holy Sprit, that by it’s life and learning, it may lead men and women into the knowledge of Thee and into the love of Thee and humanity.”
In 1875, the Jaipur Darbar gave a site of about 17 Bighas of land and a grant of Rs. 3000 towards the building fund of the Church here. The foundation stone was laid during the Episcopate of Bishop Milman, Metropolitan of India. The Church was designed and completed by Colonel Sir Swinton Jacob K.C.I.E., C.V.O. who was the Superintending Engineer, Jaipur state from 1867 to 1902. The building was first opened for Divine Service on Christmas Day in 1876 and was consecrated on 4th August 1878 by the Most Rev. Dr. E.R. Johnson, Bishop of Calcutta and was named, “All Saints”.
