New Spanish Hymnals

Last year the George Brent Council of the Knights of Columbus gave a generous donation to the parish, which was designated to help us purchase new Spanish hymnals. The current Flor y Canto (3rd edition) softcover hymnals are beyond repair. Just as we received the donation, we were informed that the 4th edition of the hymnal was being published. Since the cost of the hymnals was more than the donation, we are now soliciting funds from our parish community for donations that will have a memorial nameplate in a hymnal. We will purchase these hymnals and begin to use them on August 11.

You may also notice that the JourneySongs hardbound English hymnals are also in poor condition. We are grateful for a team of choir members who have repaired the spines/covers of these hymnals on a regular basis. We would like to replace them at some point, but we are mindful of a new translation that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) are preparing of the Lectionary (book of readings) that is used at Sunday Masses and are printed in the hymnal. We do not know exactly when such a translation will be promulgated. Until we can obtain further information on the road map for these translations, we are deferring the replacement of the JourneySongs hymnals.

Please treat all hymnals with care. Parents, please teach your children respect for the hymnals that are in the pews as they are needed for our worship of God. If you have any questions, or would like to make a contribution for a hymnal, please contact Director of Music Tim Lewicki (tlewicki@allsaintsva.org).

Confession Schedule – Week of June 9

All Saints offers the Sacrament of Reconciliation on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, June 12 – 6:30 – 8:00 PM
  • Saturday, June 15 – 3:00 – 4:00 PM

First Friday
For the First Friday of each month, we have the following schedule:

Confession – after 7:00 AM Mass
Confession – 7:00 PM
Mass in Spanish – 8:00 PM

Please note that for the morning confessions, once we have posted a sign that the confession line is closed, please do not enter the line. This will allow us to finish those who have already been waiting in line and will allow the priests to finish before the 8:30 AM Mass. One should not miss a part of the Mass (for example, the Liturgy of the Word or the Liturgy of the Eucharist) due to being in Confession. Also, please do not put “placeholders” for a place in line, such as a hymnal on the floor, during Mass. We ask those in line to be considerate of others. Thank you


Todos los Santos ofrece el Sacramento de la Reconciliación en las siguientes fechas:

  • Miércoles, 12 de junio – 6:30 – 8:00 PM
  • Sábado, 15 de junio – 3:00 – 4:00 PM

Primer Viernes
Para el primer viernes de cada mes, tenemos el siguiente horario:

Después de la misa de 7:00 AM Confesiones
7:00 pm Confessions
8:00 pm Misa en Español

Tenga en cuenta que para las confesiones de la mañana, una vez que hayamos colocado un letrero de que la línea de confesión está cerrada, no ingrese a la línea. Esto nos ermitirá terminar con aquellos que ya han estado esperando en la fila y permitirá que los sacerdotes terminen antes de la Misa de las 8:30 AM. No se debe perder una parte de la isa (por ejemplo, la Liturgia de la Palabra o la Liturgia de la Eucaristía) por estar en Confesión. Además, no coloque “marcadores de posición” para un lugar en la fila, como un himnario en el piso, durante la misa. Les pedimos a los que están en la fila que sean considerados con los demás. Gracias.

Scheduling a Mass Intention for 2024

The scheduling of Mass intentions at All Saints Parish is done through the parish office. Please note the following:

  • Scheduled Masses — If you are a parishioner and would like to have a Mass offered for someone, please stop by the Parish Office. We receive many requests for the limited number of Masses offered each year. In view of this fact and the size of our parish, to ensure some fairness in the procedure, we are asking that each family limit their Mass Intentions to no more than twelve (12) scheduled Masses per year. The customary Mass stipend in the Province of Baltimore, to which the Arlington Diocese belongs, is $10.00.
  • Unscheduled Masses — If you wish to have other Masses offered for an individual or need, an unscheduled Mass will be offered within a short period of time by a priest of the parish or sent to a priest in a seminary, campus ministry, retreat house, or the missions.
  • Purgatorial Society — Deceased family members and friends of our parish may be enrolled as a member of the Purgatorial Society of All Saints Catholic Church, and as such will be remembered in a special Mass each month for one year. Suggested Mass donation is $20.00.
  • All Saints and St. Gabriel Mission — Mass intentions for Masses at All Saints Church will be taken at the All Saints Parish Office. Mass intentions for Masses at St. Gabriel Mission will be taken at the St. Gabriel Pastoral Center located at 9110 Railroad Drive, Suite 300, Manassas Park.

All Saints Music Ministry – Overview

RCIA Sponsors Needed

RCIA Journeying to Jesus

Sponsors for those who are becoming Catholic. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) (or children) is the process for bringing adults and young people into the Catholic Church. Each individual in the program needs a sponsor. As a representative of the faith community, the sponsor is a companion on the journey to full initiation.

Sponsors offer advice and encouragement and grow together with the person they sponsor as they share their faith together. There are many adults and young people who do not have someone in their lives to make that commitment.

If you are interested or willing to share your faith experience with someone who wishes to join the Church, please contact the Religious Education office (571-516-3154). Samantha Welsh, Director of Religious Education, will be happy to speak with you about the program.

Pass on the Good News of Jesus Christ

Pass on the Good News of Jesus Christ and our Catholic Faith! This fall, over 1,100 students in kindergarten through grade 12 will take part in Religious Education (RE) classes at All Saints to learn more about their Catholic faith. You can help them learn and grow in faith by becoming a Catechist. With classes offered Sunday morning, Monday evening, and Tuesday evening, there are a variety of days and times to fit your schedule.

All Saints would like to increase the number of students in its in-person classes, so additional catechists and assistants are needed. Registration for classes will begin on July 5, 2023; the only classes that will be open for registration will be those that have a catechist available to teach. As you nurture the faith of the young, you will continue to learn and grow as well! As one long-time catechist put it, “I learn so much from teaching RE!”

To volunteer or find out more, please contact Samantha at swelsh@allsaintsva.org or 571-516-3154.

Note:
Registration for Religious Education (RE) classes for 2023-2024 will begin on July 5, 2023. Registration information and links to the registration forms for in-person RE classes will be available on the RE website allsaintsreligiouseducation.org. All registration will be via online Google forms.
