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!

‘Tis the time for spring cleaning! The All Saints Parish Library is accepting book donations again! Beginning this Spring, books that duplicates or multiples of books already in the library will be sold online, the proceeds to go to our parish – yet another way to support the Church of All Saints….and be rid of extra books! Please drop off book donations in the convent back porch with a note saying “Book Donations to All Saints’ Library.”
WANTED: Any used and still serviceable bubble mailers for the shipping of books. The bubble mailers can be varying sizes. New (unused) bubble mailers are more than welcome, too! These bubble mailers will be used to package and ship the above mentioned books to be sold online to benefit the parish. May God reward you!
If you’re a high school or college-aged young person and would like to pray Vespers and have a twice-weekly conversation with us, simply sign up to receive announcements from our Youth group Flocknote page and follow the prompts.
We begin at 4:30 PM every Monday and Thursday over Zoom (for the time being). Also check out and follow our ‘AllSaintsFSSPYouthGroup’ Instagram page.
