The Sentinel – May 29, 2013

 Principal’s Message If the greatest measure of the success of our school can be found in the accomplishments of our graduates, then the Ordination of Fr. Matthew Carroll, class of 1998, was certainly a high-water mark for the community of All Saints! It was a great joy for members of the faculty & staff, along with school families, to witness the Mass of Ordination held at St. Dominic Church in Washington, D.C last Friday.  For me, one of the most poignant moments occurred at the end of the liturgy when, after the closing prayer, the Bishop knelt at the foot of the sanctuary in order to receive a blessing from each of the newly ordained.  As the entire congregation stood motionless observing this extraordinary moment, the silence was broken only by the ringing of the Angelus … [Read more...]
