My Dear Parishioners,
Welcome back our teachers: Our dedicated teachers are in our buildings to get their lessons and classrooms ready to welcome our children for the new academic year. We are blessed to add one new teacher and a few new staff to our team. Of course, we are blessed with many new students this year. A special thanks to their parents for putting their trust in our Catholic School for the good of their children. Due to the pandemic, it has been a struggle for everyone worldwide, including in our school system. Let us be patient and pray to end the pandemic so that we all can go back to our normal way of life without fear and headaches. More details on our teachers, staff, and students will be coming soon.
Special Thanks: To our beloved Altar Society for the generous $5,000 to help pay for the new roof of our Fischer Center and the church’s office building. The total cost for the projects was $18,000. Thank you also to Jim Wiesen Roofing for the discounted price. Jim loves to help others because he is a daily Mass attendant. Moreover, we were also blessed with another $5,000 from a non-parishioner family. This special family used to attend All Saints Catholic church and school. One weekend, they happened to attend one of our weekend Masses and were pleased with what is happening at All Saints. They decided to give us a big check after they read my letter in the bulletin about putting the new roof on the Fischer Center. Of course, I was so happy for our church and wrote to them, thanking them on your behalf. Yea, we are so blessed here at All Saints!
Finally, thank you everyone for your love, thoughts, and prayers for our church’s family. Please know that we need your daily prayers, especially for our children, teachers, and parish staff as we are about to enter a new school year with so many uncertainties due to the pandemic. Our mission is to worship, evangelize, love, and educate our children. I trust that with your prayers, we will know when to put on our brakes when necessary. I know that the Holy Spirit is with us, to lead us and to guide us into the way of love and life. Peace and good health to you all, Fr. Hien 😊
