At All Saints Catholic School, our faith is taught and modeled daily by teachers, staff members, and parish priests. It can range from the simplicity of a morning offering to the challenge of preparing for our school religion bee. It is displayed and witnessed weekly as we participate in the highest form of prayer, the Mass. Throughout the year, our faith is modeled through the traditions that have grown around the Feast of All Saints and the seasons of Advent, Lent and Easter.
The faith community is built through our shared commitment to prayer, virtue and service. Steeped in the richness of our Catholic traditions, our faith is a lived reality within our school and the inspiration for our outreach efforts and the support we provide one another. Woven together, our collective efforts create a community that extends beyond the adults and children in our school, embracing families, parishioners and the world beyond.
The faith is evident and active throughout the school and surroundings. Our parish church is located just steps away from the school entrance. Dedicated and consecrated by Bishop Paul S. Loverde in 2010, the church is where we gather for the Eucharist, our greatest prayer from which all else flows. A statue of Mary graces the center of the school courtyard and is the gathering point for the middle school prayer service on opening day, the First Communion and Confirmation prayer services, and our May Crowning.
As a Christ-centered community rooted in the message of the Gospel, All Saints Catholic School fosters holiness by integrating the teachings of the Catholic faith throughout the curriculum as well as day-to-day activities. The students experience the faith within community as they celebrate weekly Mass and Holy Days with parishioners and parents. At the close of each quarter, the students, faculty, and staff attend Eucharistic Adoration & Benediction, led by one of our priests or deacons. After years of faith formation, the seventh and eighth grade students attend weekly Adoration with their religion teacher to spend time in prayer with Jesus during Exposition. Through their efforts, the faculty and staff have created a learning environment that fosters the development of the whole person with a special emphasis on spiritual formation.
