Christmas Poinsettias

We are offering an opportunity for parishioners to dedicate a Christmas poinsettia in memory of a loved one. These flowers will be used to decorate the High Altar and Sanctuary for Christmas. Orders must be completed by Wednesday, December 16th to ensure that all names will be in the Christmas bulletins.

We ask for a $25 donation. Forms will be on the front and back tables on Sunday, November 26th.

Christmas Stocking Thank You

Once again we are going to present our pre-school teachers with a "Christmas Stocking" to thank them for their service and dedication to our preschool students. Please send your monetary donations to All Saints' Office or to Lucretia Locke by Friday, December 16th. The teachers were most appreciative last year!

Thank you for your support.

Parish life

Do you enjoy using your phone to take pictures of where you are? We're looking for photos of our parish life at All Saints’: parishioners as they arrive for Mass, or after Mass as they congregate on the patio, or are in the Parish Hall enjoying fellowship during the coffee hour, or at all parish events such as upcoming All Saints’ Sunday. If you do, please email your photos to Louise Lawson at:


On your next visit to All Saints’ take a walk to the corner of Pennsylvania and 6th Avenues. There you will find that the church’s cornerstone and the letters on the cornerstone have been repainted; and that All Saints’ seal has been recreated in bronze. In the words of one of All Saints’ parishioners— ”classy”. In the December/January newsletter issue an article will describe the various elements of the seal.

We, at All Saints' Parish, have a long time tradition in our prayer chain. We feel that as we pray together and pass on our thoughts and prayers to God we deepen our relationship , not only with God, but with ourselves as his servants and parishioners. Please join us in keeping this time honored tradition continuing to help others see God and seek his help and blessings as we do. Call Lynette Blakney (call the office for her number.)
