All Saints Parish will be conducting a food collection drive for the St. Lucy Project, a Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington program, on Saturday/Sunday, September 16-17. The St. Lucy Project is a food distribution hub for food banks, with parish and ecumenical partners.
As Christ said: “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, …” [Mt 25:35]. Our brothers and sisters in Christ need our help.
Questions? Contact Marie Klatt, Coordinator of Bethany Food Pantry (571-516-3166 or email@example.com).

The image of St. Lucy has her holding a stalk of wheat in one hand and a dish with eyes in the other. The wheat is to remind us of her passion to feed the hungry. There are many stories of her bringing bread to early Christians hiding in the Catacombs in the dead of night so they would not starve. She would often wear a wreath of candles on her head to light her way. The eyes symbolize that she is the Patron Saint to the blind; and quite often, we are blind to the hungry in our own communities. This is why St. Lucy is our Patron Saint. May she always guide us to see the hungry and help feed them.
Learn about our many ministries and get involved in parish life!
All Saints Parish is excited to sponsor a Ministry Fair in the Parish Courtyard on Sunday, September 24, from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM. The goal of the Ministry Fair is to encourage parishioners to join our vibrant parish ministries and get involved in parish life.
Deepen your faith, connect with fellow parishioners, and make a positive impact on the lives of others.
The Ministry Fair will feature a festive atmosphere with music and fellowship. Stop by our information tables to learn more about each ministry, ask questions, and discern how God is calling you to be involved in parish life at All Saints.
We thank everyone already involved in our various ministries and invite others to join our welcoming community in experiencing the joy of serving God and others.
As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace. [1 Peter 4:10]
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.

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

Para el primer viernes de cada mes, ahora hemos añadido lo siguiente a la programación
Después de la misa de 7:oo 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.

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 email@example.com 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.
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 visit the parish office. There are 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.
Questions? Please contact Linda at firstname.lastname@example.org or 571-516-3140.
