A Message from the Principal  
Join us for a Day of Giving Tomorrow
Season of Advent
The season of Advent is here...the dawning of a new Church year! For us at All Saints Catholic School, this season has special significance. We are blessed in our Catholic school setting to celebrate the true meaning of Advent and Christmas. " Rejoice ,Christ is coming" is our scriptural focus for this Advent season. Every week the students ,either with their homerooms or religion classes ,will gather in the chapel for a prayer service and lighting of the advent wreath. 

During the weeks of Advent, we encourage you to take time in your homes for reflection, prayer and family talks during the hustle & bustle of preparing for Christmas. The best gift we can give our children is ourselves. Years from now, their fondest memories will be the times just spent being together.
