- 2022-2023 School Theme Announced
At the beginning of each academic year, All Saints announces a theme that further unites us as a faith community and that provides a daily focus for all of our efforts. I am pleased to share with you the theme for the 2022-2023 school year.
My spirit rejoices in God my Savior.
These words of the Blessed Virgin Mary, taken from the Gospel of Luke, are aligned with the second year of preparation for the diocesan celebration of the 50th Anniversary Jubilee. It is Mary who is the Model Disciple who shows us how to the receive the Word and to bear the Word to the world. As we enter into the second year of preparation later this fall, it is a time for us to rejoice in the vitality of our diocese as well as the vibrancy of our school community. I pray that this theme will be a source of inspiration for you and your families throughout this academic year.
More information about the preparation for the Diocesan Golden Jubilee can be found at the link below.
