All Saints Spreads Kindness to the Community

Last year, our Student Ambassadors introduced the theme of “Spreading Kindness like Confetti.” In December, we will put the focus on “kindness to community.”  As this is the season of giving, we would like our students to learn about giving to people in need in the community.  Let us show our children how to help others through kind words, kind acts and generosity.

We have sent a flyer home with each child with ideas of how to spread kindness in the community.  Please consider doing a kind act in our community as a family.  For every kind act, please fill out a piece of confetti (back of the flyer) and put it in our “kindness jar of confetti” in the front office.  Did you donate shoes to House of Mercy or donate food to Bethany Food pantry?  Don’t forget to write those acts of kindness down and bring them to the front office too. Let’s see how our small acts of kindness add up to make a big impact in our community!

Advent at All Saints

Next week we will begin our annual journey of Advent, a time of preparation for the celebration of Christ’s birth.  Through the years at All Saints we have established several traditions that help to create a tone of anticipation and waiting as we prepare our hearts to celebrate the coming of our Savior.

Advent Wreath Prayer Services ~ On Monday morning the students will assemble in the Parish Activities Center at 8:15 a.m. for a school-wide prayer service highlighting the meaning of the Advent Wreath.  During the second and third weeks of Advent, each Monday students will gather around three separate wreaths in each of the wings of the school where they will participate in grade level prayer services.

Sacrament of Reconciliation ~ Each of the students in grades three through eight will have an opportunity to encounter Christ in this beautiful Sacrament of healing and forgiveness during two Penance Services.

Grades 6-8       December 5th (1:30 p.m.)
Grades 3-5       December 10th (10:00 a.m.)

“Basket of Joy” to Benefit the Children of the Saint Gabriel Mission ~ The NJHS and the SCA will be sponsoring a “Basket of Joy” outreach project to benefit the children of the Saint Gabriel Mission.   We are asking that those families interested in participating, donate a gallon size zip lock bag containing five (5) items, which in turn will be placed in a small basket to distribute to the children of the Saint Gabriel Mission on Christmas Day.  Suggested items for the basket are toys, candy, books, coloring books, crayons, pencils, stickers, etc., most of which can be purchased at a local dollar store.  Baskets will be provided by the NJHS and the SCA.  Donations should be given to your child’s teacher no later than December 14.  Through the generosity of our school families, we will bring joy to the less fortunate children in our community.

Bethany Food Pantry Collection ~ The monthly Bethany Food Pantry collection will occur on Thursday, December 6.  Our theme for the December collection is “Holiday Desserts”. Students are invited to donate dessert items such as flour, Maseca corn flour, oil, sugar, cookie mixes, cake mixes with icing, sprinkles, etc.  Collection of these items will occur in the breezeway during morning arrival.  In advance, thank you for your generous support of this parish outreach to the local Manassas community.

House of Blessed Chiara

Today is the Feast Day of Blessed Chiara Luce Badano. Our middle school “House of Blessed Chiara” is honoring their house saint by writing and placing stickers with kind messages onto lollipops and distributing them to each of our students in middle school. The lollipop theme ties into a leadership video the House of Chiara watched earlier this year and supports Blessed Chiara’s focus on love and kindness.

Facts about Blessed Chiara:

  • She was born in Sassello, Italy. Her parents had prayed and hoped for a child for more than 10 years.
  • Blessed Chiara is known for her big heart. From the age of four, she began giving away her favorite toys, inviting those less fortunate into her home, and visiting the elderly and sick.
  • She died of bone cancer at the age of 18. Before she died, she said, “I have nothing left, but I still have my heart and with that I can always love.
  • Pope Benedict XVI declared her “Blessed” in 2010.
