Congratulations to and prayers for new member of the Filiae Laboris Mariae Sister Raya, who became a postulant on the Feast of St. Joseph!
Enrollment in Church of All Saints Online Giving is more important than ever during these weeks ahead. Even though All Saints may not be as open in the typical ways, the work of caring for souls, as well as the sacramental and prayer life of the Church, continues. Bills still need to be paid and projects need to be cared for/maintained so that we can be up and running just as soon as possible when this sickness is over (may it be soon!) The chance to count money is diminished when employees are asked to stay away, so please consider giving in this fashion.
All contributions are tabulated and will be included in future editions of the bulletin, which will also be emailed out to everyone in PDF form using our Flocknotes software as well as on our parish website.
Flock Notes is here. This is a communication tool meant to help each parishioner, whether enrolled from the beginning or brand new, get connected with information about the various groups and organizations at All Saints so that all can take part in the many good ways has blessed us.
Partaking in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is of the utmost importance; building a community life in Christ and His Church around shared needs and goals is also a laudable pursuit. This is a tool to make it easier and is simple to begin!

The Sisters have a new candidate, Raya Elizabeth Cotton, who comes to us from Staffordshire, Great Britain. Her family belongs to the Shrine of St. Mary’s in Warrington, which is served by the FSSP. Raya will become a postulant (and be called Sister Raya) on the Feast of Saint Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Please pray for Raya and for all of the Filiae Laboris Mariae. Thank you!
