My Dear Parishioners,
Wow, we got so much rain last week. This week, the weather is much more favorable in Kansas than for those who are on the east coast with the hurricane Florence. We pray that no one will get hurt from the hurricane. Whether it’s hot or cold or rain or snow, our love for God and for one another will always be there and real.
Please join me in praying daily for our All Saint students, teachers and staff. Catholic education is extremely important to our church family. We need our children to learn their Catholic faith today. We also want our children to learn all that they can learn today. We want them to be great and successful men and women in all the years to come. We are here to love them and to provide the best education for them. Here are the names of some of our beloved students that you can pray for by name this week.

Thank You: Please join me in thanking God for the stewardship of Helen Wales as chairperson of our parish council for years. Recently Helen informed me of her resignation as the chairperson of the parish council due to her family stressful/health issues. Thank you, Helen, for your dedicated ministry. Here is a letter I wrote to her: Dear Helen, God's blessing be with you. Sandy shared with me your email/letter of resignation. I want to thank you for the many years of your love and service to our church family. I know that you love your parish. Please continue loving and serving our Lord in other ministries that you love and always take good care of your family, especially your husband. I will pray for both of you. Thank you and God Bless, Fr. Hien.
All the Saints in heaven pray for us, Fr. Hien
