All Saints Catholic School is a ministry of St. Peter, St. Ann and Our Lady of Fatima parishes. As the members of these three parishes built their churches, they also built a Catholic school for their children to attend. In 1974, the three schools were combined into one – All Saints. We serve the members of these three parishes, along with others who accept our mission and philosophy.
All Saints Students
All Saints Catholic School is a parochial school. We exist to provide instruction in the traditions and values of the Catholic faith. Each student begins and ends their day with prayer. Each course is taught against the background of our faith and the truth it professes.
But how do you measure the Catholic identity of a school or how well it is teaching Catholic doctrine to its students?
Here are a few ways All Saints strives to reflect our Catholic identity:
- Students read scripture and reflect on the Gospel.
- Christ-centered prayer in our classrooms with prayer corners created for our younger students.
- Students talk about their relationship with Christ and how it shapes their daily life.
- Students prepare and celebrate weekly liturgy.
- Exposure to various devotions of the church such as the Stations of the Cross, the rosary and special prayers.
- There is Christ- themed artwork in our classrooms and halls along with religious bulletin boards.
- Yearly retreats.
- Celebrations of church holy days.
- Pictures and statues of Jesus, Mary and the saints along with the crucifix.
- Each classroom has a patron saint whose feast day is celebrated.
- Community Service Projects.
Community Service projects are an outward expression of who we are as a Catholic community. Our students learn to serve others and see the needs around them. Each student participates in various school-wide projects such as the penny drive for the Guild School, our annual food drive and the St. Peter’s Giving Tree. Other projects are done by individual classrooms, like helping out at the Union Gospel Mission, working with Sacred Heart Medical Center and doing yard work in connection with Catholic Charities.
All Saints Teachers
Jesus was a teacher and is a model for all of us who have chosen to work in a Catholic School. Each day, our teachers help open our students’ minds and hearts to the Gospel. They help our students make a choice to live wisely in the world, serve others in our community and choose to live every day as Jesus did.
- All of the classroom teachers at All Saints are practicing Catholics.
- All of them hold Level 1 or 2 Catechetical Certification by the diocese.
- Teachers attend three spiritual retreats throughout the year to grow in their own faith life.
