Operation Rice Bowl – Thank You!

Thanks to the generous participation of our students in the Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Rice Bowl Program during Lent, All Saints received $1,851.55 in donations.  All of these funds will support the work of CRS in providing much needed relief for the poor in our diocese and around the world.  Thank you, students, for your very generous support!

Race for Education Results

Dear Parents & Guardians,
It was wonderful to see so many of you at the Race for Education yesterday and we are so grateful for all of the support that you provided during the event.
Thank you to those in our community who provided financial contributions and who encouraged family and friends to support the effort.  With the receipt of a $2,000 gift last evening, I am excited to share with you that we crossed the “finish line” of our initial goal of $33,000.  Thank you for your generous support!
Congratulations to the Alexander and Harvill Families, the recipients of the VIP Carpool raffle.  Look for them at the front of the line during dismissal beginning on Monday!
I want to specifically thank Mrs. Laura Burroughs and Mrs. Kelly Ballard for serving as the event coordinators.  They invested countless hours in organizing and creatively promoting the Race, the result of which was a wonderful community-builder and highly successful fundraiser for our school.
On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students of All Saints Catholic School, thank you for your support of the 2022 Race for Education!
In Christ,
David E. Conroy, Jr.
Principal

Bread of Life Food Drive Results

Thank you to everyone who contributed so generously to All Saints Catholic School’s 2nd Annual Bread of Life Food Drive, March 30 – April 8. At the conclusion of the drive, we donated over 3,000 pounds of food to the St. Lucy Project and All Saints’ Bethany Food Pantry. Your contributions of fresh fruits and vegetables and non-perishable food items helped individuals and families throughout Prince William County who are struggling with food insecurity.

As noted by Mr. Conroy in the April 13 issue of The Sentinel, “We are so proud of our students for their enthusiastic support of this outreach, one that will directly benefit families who experience food insecurity in our region. I wish to thank Mrs. DeBruyne, Mrs. Bill, and Mrs. DeVore, as well as the students of the National Junior Honor Society, for coordinating the many details related to this program.”

Congratulations to the following classes that donated the greatest amount of food items during the collection.

  • 1st Place (Chick-fil-A Lunch) – 4A (542 Donations)
  • 2nd Place (Dress Down Day) – 1A (495 Donations)
  • 3rd Place (Extra Recess) – K2 (470 Donations)

Cuthbert Supports the Bread of Life Food Drive

Join in our Rice Bowl initiative

During this Lenten season, our school community will participate in Catholic Relief Services’ (CRS) Rice Bowl initiative, a faith-in-action program that invites us to encounter anew ourselves, our neighbors, and our God.

Each of the students has received a cardboard rice bowl into which they can place their donations during Lent.  All of the funds will benefit CRS Rice Bowl which is sponsored by Catholic Relief Services, the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States. Catholic Relief Services is motivated by the example of Jesus Christ to assist poor and suffering people in more than 100 countries on the basis of need, without regard to race, religion, or nationality.

While the act of sacrificial giving is an important part of our Lenten tradition, the experience takes on even greater meaning when our students understand the plight of those less fortunate and recognize the difference that they can make to alleviate suffering.  So that the children may develop this appreciation of the needs of those around the world, each week of Lent the teachers will lead discussions and lessons using the materials made available by Catholic Relief Services. It is our hope that these conversations will inspire sacrificial giving among our students as they place their contributions into their Rice Bowls.  At the end of Lent, families will be asked to convert the contributions from their children into a check to be submitted to All Saints after which our school will forward all of the funds to the diocese.

Here are some strategies that you may wish to consider in shaping your own family’s Lenten plan:

  • Use your CRS Rice Bowl and Lenten Calendar each day to guide your Lenten prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
  • As a family, read the online Stories of Hope and daily reflections to inspire your Lenten journey and guide your Lenten almsgiving.
  • Prepare simple meatless meals on Fridays throughout Lent, in solidarity with our brothers and sisters around the world.  Recipes for simple meals can be found on the CRS website.
For more information, including spiritual reflections, short video presentations on the topic of Lent, and even virtual Stations of the Cross, please see the link below.
