Special Message from All Saints’
Uniform Closet Co-Chairs
We are ready to host our Uniform Sale! As you can imagine, with physical distancing things will have to be done differently this year. Here are the details:
- Complete the Elementary Uniform Closet Request Form and/or Middle School Uniform Closet Request Form and we will gather the items for you.
- Orders will be processed in the order that they are received and we are limiting quantities to 2 per item. This will ensure that we can help as many families as possible with their uniform needs.
- If you have more than one student in either level, please place each of their names on the appropriate form.
- Email your completed forms to the email address on the bottom of the form.
We know many families would like the ability to try things on, but at this phase we are not able to accommodate that. In some cases, it will be fairly easy to gauge what size is needed. We understand this will be more difficult with the skirts and pants. If you are really unsure, perhaps you could take a ride to FlynnO’Hara for sizing.
You will be able to pick up items on the following day/times by the gym door to the back parking lot:
- Saturday, August 15th from 10:00 AM -12:00 PM
- Saturday, August 15th from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
We will be accepting cash or check. If possible, please pay by check and have the check filled out with the exception of the dollar amount. We want to keep the line moving and remember to stay physically distanced.
Please return your form by August 14 to ensure processing!

Over the course of the past two months, the Continuity of Mission Task Force has been planning for the reopening of school for the 2020-2021 academic year. All of the deliberations and decision-making have been informed by the guidance provided by state and local health officials, the Office of Catholic Schools, and input from experts in the field. We are grateful for the feedback provided by faculty, staff and parents which has helped us gain a broad understanding of community perceptions, needs, and interests.

We are so excited to announce that Miss Galanides, All Saints Art Teacher, is organizing a Virtual Art Show for All Saints students!

To submit artwork, please do the following:

- Once you are on the All Saints class page, you will be able to add your child’s name and parent email to the roster.
- Student usernames and artwork will be private until the child’s parent or guardian gives permission for it to be viewed publicly.
We will be sending out a link to the Virtual Art Show on June 2, 2020, so everyone can enjoy the creative works of our student community! See the Virtual Art Show Flyer below for more information. If you have any questions, please email Miss Galanides at email@example.com,

In accordance with the decision of Prince William County Public Schools and with the guidance of the Office of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Arlington, All Saints Catholic School will be closed to students beginning Monday, March 16 due to health concern related to Coronavirus. eLearning will begin on Wednesday, March 18.
Monday, March 16 will be an off-site planning day for faculty & staff to prepare for the launch of eLearning on Wednesday, March 18. (Tuesday, March 17 will be a non-instructional day as we finalize procedures and operations.)
As we prepare to transition to eLearning, we anticipate that there will be questions and challenges. Know that the faculty and administration will be available online to guide you and your children through this new learning process. Early next week I will provide additional guidance in regards to the structure of our eLearning program.
In the words of Dr. Vorbach, Superintendent of Schools, this is a moment that calls for prayer, agility and patience. With a commitment to each of these three, we will remain united as a community and rise to the challenge that lies ahead.
Wishing you and your families peace, good health, and a restful weekend.

The 2020 Running with the Saints 5K has been canceled to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 especially to the vulnerable in our community. While we are saddened that we will not gather together this year to honor the Gregory Family, we know this is the right decision. And while we will not be pounding the pavement, our race has already been an incredible success. Running with the Saints has raised more than $6,000 for the Gregory Family. More importantly, 120 hours of prayer were devoted to Joe and his family. And those were the ones that were able to sign up for specific hours. We know in addition there were countless masses, rosaries, and family prayers being offered as well. We are grateful for the community’s generosity and we ask you to continue to pray for the Gregory Family and to respond as generously if they need any more assistance in the future.
Our beautifully designed T-shirts that share the message of Joe Gregory “Choose Joy” arrive this week. As this situation unfolds and the risk to our community lessens, we will be announcing a pickup time at the school to get your bags with sponsor material and T-shirts. Please support our sponsors because without them, we would not be able to continue this event year after year. We also will pool all the prizes and awards together and pick winners through a raffle system. We will announce winners through email and make arrangements to pick up prizes.
We thank you for all your support of our school and the Gregory Family. Please keep those impacted by COVID-19 in your prayers.

During Lent, All Saints will be introducing our students to the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, another devotion of our Church. With this in mind, we will pray the modified prayer found below at the close of the day in place of the Hail Mary on Fridays during Lent. Helpful resources and the history of the Divine Mercy Chaplet can be found at the following link: https://www.thedivinemercy.org/message/devotions/pray-the-chaplet
Divine Mercy Prayer
Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world. For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Jesus, I trust in you.
