- Thanks for your support of #GivingTuesday
With sincere appreciation, we want to thank everyone who made our day of giving such a great success!
Due to the generosity of our All Saints community (current school families, faculty & staff, former parents, alumni and parishioners) we raised $3,826 in our first ever #iGiveCatholic / #GivingTuesday campaign!
All proceeds will help fund curriculum and technology initiatives for our students.
Final Chance to Give
We are just $174 from our goal of raising $4,000 through our #GivingTuesday campaign.
If you would still like to participate, we will be accepting check donations through Monday, December 7. Please send checks through your child’s teacher in an envelope marked “Attn: Mrs. Janis DeVore” or by mailing your donation to All Saints Catholic School, 9294 Stonewall Road, Manassas, VA 20110, Attn: Mrs. Janis DeVore.
Thank you again for your support of our #GivingTuesday efforts!

- We Care Week – Dress Down Day
Each year the Diocese of Arlington hosts “We Care Week,” an annual opportunity for schools to acknowledge and support the outstanding work of Catholic Charities. For the past five years, we have linked our Thanksgiving Luncheon to an outreach effort to benefit the St. Lucy Project, a large warehouse in Manassas where staff and volunteers process and distribute donations to numerous food pantries in our region. In the past, our community has very generously responded to this effort, typically contributing more than $1,000 each year.
This year We Care Week will begin on Sunday, December 6. In support of this program, all students are invited to participate in a Dress Down Day.
- Monday, November 30 – Blue Cohort
- Tuesday, December 1- White Cohort
- Virtual Learners may select one of the two days.
The cost to participate is $1.00 with families invited to make an additional donation to support this wonderful cause. Again this year, we will request that the donations from our school specifically target the needs of the St. Lucy Project.
In advance, thank you for your generous support.
- Thanksgiving Food Collection
Saint Teresa of Calcutta reminds us “if you cannot feed one hundred people, then just feed one”. Although structured differently this year, All Saints Catholic School will once again partner with the Bethany Food Pantry in collecting food items to provide families in need with a Thanksgiving meal. Working closely with the food pantry, we have determined a safe way to collect food items that encourages participation while maintaining the health and safety of our school community.
On Wednesday, November 18 and Thursday, November 19, students may participate in our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive by placing food items in bins that will be located outside during morning arrival in both the front and back carpool areas. Students who participate all virtually are invited to participate on either of these days and may drop off items on either day, in either location.
In an effort to balance the type of food the pantry is seeking, we have assigned the following grade level items:
- Kindergarten – 1 5-pound bag of white potatoes
- 1st Grade – 1 5-pound bag of white potatoes
- 2nd Grade – 1 5-pound bag of sweet potatoes
- 3rd Grade – 1 5-pound bag of sweet potatoes
- 4th Grade – 3 bunches of celery
- 5th Grade – 2 3-pound bags of onions
- 6th Grade – 2 3-pound bags of onions
- 7th Grade – 3 1-pound bags of carrots
- 8th Grade – 3 1-pound bags of carrots
Thank you for your generosity in ensuring that many families in need
throughout our community enjoy a beautiful Thanksgiving meal.

- Pilgrim Virgin Statue Program
Pilgrim Virgin Statue Program
Beginning in November, school families are once again invited to renew their devotion to Jesus through Mary by participating in the Pilgrim Virgin Statue Program. Each week one of the statues of Our Lady will travel to the home of one school family for a weeklong visit. (Note: As a health precaution, only one statue will be in rotation each week which will allow time for the statues and materials to be quarantined between visits.)
For more information about the program or to sign up to host one of the statues, please see the following link.
While the statue of the Blessed Mother is in the home, families are encouraged to pray together either part of or the entire five-decade Rosary for the intentions of our school as well as for their private intentions. New this year, we are also inviting families throughout our school community to participate in a virtual Rosary that will take place via Zoom. Look for more details in the near future.
Should you have any questions, please contact the rotation coordinator, Mrs. Maricel Pascua, at email@example.com.

- Family Stewardship Program
The PTO will be using the HelpCounter Software as a single point access point for signing up for volunteer opportunities and logging completed stewardship shares. The parent of each student has been added to the Help Counter database under the email listed in the school registration packet (both parents may have the same email listed). Each family will need to log into HelpCounter and create their profile.
If you used HelpCounter last year, you may be asked to create a new log-in. Access to HelpCounter is through the following link: HelpCounter Software.
Here is a link to HelpCounter Instructions.
In addition, per the diocese, all volunteers must complete a background check and a training program called VIRTUS prior to participating in an in-person volunteering opportunity. Please refer to the following link for specific directions on completing this process.
Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact volunteer coordinators Carol Rice or Sharon Storey firstname.lastname@example.org
- Helping Hands Survey
Education during a pandemic is extremely challenging for students, parents, staff, and especially on teachers – many of whom have school children as well. As a parent at this school for over 14 years, I can tell you that one of the many blessings of All Saints School is the tremendous community of families, teachers, staff, and our priests.
Together we do amazing things! This is especially evident when family members volunteer for the school. Although current health concerns prevent volunteers from helping inside the school, there is still an opportunity to provide much needed support to our hardworking teachers by being a Helping Hand volunteer.
Helping Hands will be doing small projects for teachers in the comfort of your own home, donating healthy snacks and extra classroom materials, and sending thoughtful notes of encouragement among other things. I recognize that everyone is busy, but if you have a little time to spare and want to be a Helping Hand, please join our amazing team of helpers by filling out our Helping Hands Survey before Wednesday, October 7th. Thank you so much!
