Resources to help your family prepare for the upcoming Mass (10/25)
All Saints Day Photo Parade
To celebrate our parish's Holy Day - ALL SAINTS DAY, November 1st - we invite you to dress up as your favorite Saint and take a photo! You can do this as a family or as individuals...there are so many fun Saints to choose from - religious, royalty, angels, lay people, biblical characters. Don't forget that Saints are also "patrons" of various things, such as music, pets, firefighters, medical professionals, teachers, etc so the possibilities are truly limitless!

Check out some ideas here:


Email your photo to emulvey@allsaints.cc by 9 pm on October 31, and I will make a video to share on All Saints Day including everyone who sends in a photo! Hold a sign so we know what Saint you are...or include the name of your Saint in the email, and I will add a label to the photo.
Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a wonderful outreach opportunity All Saints families can participate in with their children. OCC delivers shoeboxes - filled with school supplies, hygiene items and fun toys - to children worldwide! 

The show box drop-off dates are November 9-20 at the home of parishioner, Becky Keating, at 8832 Sandymar Dr. Her home is directly across from the parish, and the box can be placed on her covered front porch. If you have questions about the program, please contact Becky at rrkeating@gmail.com.
 
Here is a link which explains the project and is a great way to get your kids excited about reaching out to children across the globe: https://video.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child-overview-2020-short/

If a family would prefer to not shop for items in a store or if they just don't have the time, then a box can be built online through this link: https://video.samaritanspurse.org/build-a-shoebox-online/

This is a funny video, featuring a handsome boy, that explains how to pack a shoebox: https://video.samaritanspurse.org/discover-the-fun-of-packing-a-shoebox-4/

Winter Collection
WINTER COAT, JACKET, SCARF, GLOVES, HAT COLLECTION
Our 10th Annual Winter Coat Drive has begun. We so much appreciate your generosity! We will keep collecting your gifts of warmth thru Monday November 2.

The All Saints YOUTH ROOM STEPS (West side of the North Wing of our Church) is the place to bring your gently worn (or graciously new) cold weather gear … coats, jackets, hats, gloves, scarves. You’ll be keeping warm someone whom you may never meet but may long remember. We’ll deliver all donations in early November to the West End Pantry at Saint Joseph’s Parish, and to Holy Family School in Price Hill. Thank for your generosity to those who may be very cold without your very warm heart.

Annual Advent Celebration
Each year, religious education families in Summer, Homeschool and Sunday PREP have come together to celebrate Advent and pray together. This year, we are offering you an at-home prayer service and paint your own pottery take-home kits through Star Glazers.

Here's how it works:

  • The purple button link below includes a sign up pdf form where you can select your pick up and drop off dates and the pieces you would like to have included in the kit - each FLOCK student gets one piece of pottery to paint at no charge.
  • On the form linked below, you can indicate which week you'd like to participate. If more than one of the week options works for your family, please check all the weeks that could work for you.
  • These kits will be available for pick up from the parish center over the 4 weekends in November, leading up to Advent - the Catholic New Year!
  • After you return the kit, the pieces will be kiln-fired and available for your pick up before Christmas!

We truly hope that many will participate in our modified, annual Advent Celebration!

Each FLOCK student gets one FREE pottery item to paint at home! Please select your pieces on the form below and scan and email it to us, drop it off or snail mail it to the Parish Office.
