Parish Front Office Renovation

The parish began a 6-week renovation construction project on Monday, June 13, within the parish office’s receptionist office and waiting room to upgrade it for safety and security. This project was planned before the COVID pandemic.

During this time, the parish receptionist office has been re-located to the parish library in the church. Please note that the signs will designate when the parish office is open in the library. If you are directed to go to the parish office building by staff (such as the Religious Education office), you will need to come to the courtyard entrance (“back door”) of the parish office building.

You may still call 703-368-4500 to call the receptionist at the parish office. The parish library will be used for receptionists as follows:

  • Monday – 9:15 AM–8:00 PM
  • Tuesday – 9:15 AM – 8:00 PM
  • Wednesday – 9:15 AM – 4:00 PM
  • Thursday – 9:15 AM – 8:00 PM
  • Friday – 9:15 AM – 4:00 PM

Note: The Parish Office is closed from 12:00 noon – 1:00 PM for lunch. There will be no Wednesday evening nor Sunday receptionist office hours during the renovation. On Wednesday evenings and Sundays, the library will have regular library hours.

Some chairs will be in the narthex of the church during office hours. Only one person or family at a time may be admitted by the receptionist into the front portion of the library for service requests. Thank you for your assistance in these important matters. There will be some inconvenience for all of us during this time, but with your cooperation, it will help us to provide a safer and more secure space for our parish office operations.


Renovación de la recePción en la oficina Parroquial
Como se mencionó la semana pasada, estamos a punto de comenzar un proyecto de construcción de 6 semanas para la renovación de la recepción en la oficina parroquial y sala de espera para actualizarla por seguridad. Este proyecto fue planeado antes de la pandemia del COVID.

Esto se anticipa desde el lunes 13 de junio hasta finales de julio. Durante este tiempo, la oficina de recepción ser reubicado en la biblioteca parroquial de la iglesia. Por favor tenga en cuenta que los letreros indicarán cuándo estará abierta la oficina parroquial en la biblioteca. Si se le dirige al edificio de la oficina parroquial por las otras oficinas parroquiales (como la reubicada oficina parroquial o la oficina de Educación Religiosa), necesitará llegar a la entrada del patio (“puerta trasera”) de la oficina parroquial.

Todavía puede llamar al 703-368-4500 para llamar a la recepcionista en la oficina parroquial. La biblioteca parroquial se utilizará para recepción de la
siguiente manera:

L-V 9:15 AM –4:00 PM

Oficina parroquial abierta
Nota: Cerrado de 12:00 a 1:00 pm para el almuerzo.

L/Mar/J 4:00 PM –8:00 PM
Horas de la tarde

No hay recepcionista los miércoles por la noche ni los domingos. Los miércoles por la noche y los domingos, la biblioteca tendrá un horario regular. Algunas sillas estarán en el pasillo de la iglesia durante las horas de oficina. Solo se podrá admitir una persona o familia a la vez por la recepcionista, en la parte delantera de la biblioteca para solicitudes de servicio.

Gracias por su ayuda en estos importantes asuntos. Habrá algunos inconvenientes para todos nosotros durante este tiempo, pero con su cooperación, nos ayudará a proporcionar una espacio más seguro para las operaciones de nuestra oficina parroquial.

Become an All Saints Catechist

Featured Video: Ceasar Achico

Religious Education (RE) classes at All Saints are taught by a team of volunteer Catechists. Through their ministry, Catechists nurture the faith and spiritual development of the children and teens that they teach and guide them into a growing relationship with Jesus.

What’s involved in serving as a Catechist?

Catechists plan lessons (with the assistance of the RE staff), prepare materials, and conduct class each week from September – May.  As a Catechist at All Saints, you will have all the resources you need in the form of print and digital materials, supplies for hands-on classroom activities, and 1:1 support from the RE staff.

Catechists have access to:

  • All Saints’ robust Resource Library and weekly curriculum guides by grade level
  • 1:1 mentoring and support from the RE staff and other Catechists
  • Arts and craft supplies and resources for hands-on activities
  • Resources through Our Sunday Visitor’s Alive in Christ textbook series with supporting video and online tools
  • Interested in more training? You can also choose to participate in the RE Volunteer Retreat, attend the Diocesan Catechetical Conference, and/or enroll in the Diocesan Catechist Certification Program taught on-site by our Director of Religious Education Mrs. Samantha Welsh.

To become a Catechist, you need to be a practicing Catholic, baptized and confirmed in the Catholic faith, and committed to Church teachings. Beyond these requirements, the most important characteristics are your willingness to learn and grow in your relationship with God and an enthusiasm to share the Catholic faith with the children/teens that you teach!

How can I learn more about serving as a Catechist?

To discern whether God is calling you to assist in the faith formation of children and teens in our parish, complete our short Volunteer Application (see below).  A member of our Religious Education staff will reach out to you to answer any questions and provide further information.

VOLUNTEER APPLICATION

Diocesan Requirement
As required by the Diocese of Arlington, all volunteers must be compliant with the Office for the Protection of Children and Young People. See Protection of God’s Children for more information.

One should not miss a part of the Mass (for example, the Liturgy of the Word or the Liturgy of the Eucharist) due to being in Confession. Also, please do not put “placeholders” for a place in line, such as a hymnal on the floor, during Mass. We ask those in line to be considerate of others. Thank you

Let us pray for each other and for an end to the COVID-19 pandemic.

No se debe perder una parte de la isa (por ejemplo, la Liturgia de la Palabra o la Liturgia de la Eucaristía) por estar en Confesión. Además, no coloque “marcadores de posición” para un lugar en la fila, como un himnario en el piso, durante la misa. Les pedimos a los que están en la fila que sean considerados con los demás.
