Our Parish Clergy

All Saints' Rector

Our Rector, The Very Reverend Robert S. Munday, Ph.D.,D.D. and his wife, Christina (Chris) as well as their daughter Laura. We are joyous to have them as members of our Church family.

Father Munday comes to All Saints following 12 years as Professor, Dean and President at Nashotah House Theological Seminary, in Wisconsin.   While at Nashotah House he founded St. Michael’s Anglican Church, Nashotah, WI, and was also the founding rector of The Church of the Savior in Milwaukee, WI.  Previously he served on the faculty of Trinity School for Ministry, in Ambridge, PA, from 1986 to 2001.   Fr. Munday is known for his commitment to biblical teaching, Spirit-filled ministry, and catholic faith and order within the Anglican tradition.  He is a prolific writer on a variety of subjects and is much sought after as a retreat leader and conference speaker. 


Fr. Munday was ordained to the diaconate (1989) and priesthood (1990) in the Diocese of Quincy by the Rt. Rev. Edward H. MacBurney.  Fr. Munday’s spirituality is grounded in the Benedictine tradition, and he is an Oblate of St. Benedict’s Abbey, Bartonville, Illinois.  

He serves on the Anglican Church in North America’s Theological Education Task Force, the Ecumenical Relations Task Force, and the Catechism Task Force.  He also serves on the boards of Anglicans for Life, the Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders (SAMS), Anglican Frontier Missions, and the Steering Committee of the Anglican Global Mission Partners.  

Fr. Munday and his wife, Christina, have been married since 1976. They are the parents of one daughter, Laura, a recent graduate of Colorado Mesa University. 


A Prayer for Our Pastor

Father, bless my pastor with rest on every side. Guard his heart and mind and cloak him in Your peace. Clear the way today for him to carry out Your plans for our faith community with no interference from the enemy. I stand in prayer for him and ask in Jesus’ name that the forces of darkness that would come against him, be pushed back and by faith I take hold of the harvest that your Spirit is bringing forth for the Kingdom of heaven through our faith community. Thank you, Lord, that each time the enemy comes in like a flood, Your Spirit will lift up a standard against him and put him to flight! I thank you for total victory for our Pastor and for my church and I ask You Lord Jesus to meet his every need. Thank you that You are mighty to save and able to overcome and defeat every attempt of the enemy that might tempt him to lose heart! Hallelujah!

Give our Pastor endurance and encouragement and clear guidance by your Spirit for every decision required of him. May the anointing of the Holy Spirit be upon him. Revive his heart with Your Word Father. May his love for You increase and compassion and love for his flock flourish and grow. Strengthen him with Your joy this day and may he be encouraged by the Holy Spirit and reminded of the spiritual sons and daughters that are his.

Give him wisdom that is from heaven I pray. Wisdom that is pure, peace loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Protect him from the evil one and from being entrapped by the fear of man. Pour out Your blessing on him Father and may Jesus be seen in him more and more, and the work of his hands firmly established. I ask these things in the name of Him who is head of the Church, and I give You thanks Lord Jesus for my pastor. Amen.

Our Parish Deacon


The Reverend Deacon Marti N. Isler

Born and raised in Pueblo, Deacon Marti Nickovich Isler is a third generation Coloradoan.  Baptized and confirmed in the Church of Ascension, Pueblo, her Anglican roots are also deeply planted.            

Her husband of 31 years, Jim, and she moved to Montrose in 2004, after 20 years of yearning to live in this beautiful place.  They both love it here. Jim is a realtor and restores old tractors.  Marti retired from many years as an elementary school teacher in 2010, when God called her to be a deacon.  She loves to hike, cross country ski, birdwatch, and spends her summers working as a ranch hand fixing fences.          

After two years of study at St. Benedict School for Ministry Deacon School, she graduated in October, 2015, and was ordained as a Deacon on December 5, 2015.  She is grateful to the loving people of All Saints for supporting her path to the diaconate with prayer, encouragement and finances for her schooling.          

Marti thanks God for calling her to a ministry she loves and is eager to fulfill.  You will find her in the community bringing Communion to shut-ins, cleaning eyeglasses at one of the local assisted living facilities, playing her clarinet with "Joyful Sounds", a music group comprised of church members and developmentally disabled adults from the community, or out and about helping community members in need. She also participates in several ministries within the church.         

Proclaiming the Gospel on Sunday is a dream come true for her!  She is very thankful to be serving in a church where people live the mission statement their church professes--"Reaching out with the transforming love of Jesus Christ."  If you have not worshiped with us, she invites you to come and experience the beauty of liturgy and the love of people who "do friendly well".
