All Saints wishes you safe travels!
Many of our members go on vacation or visit family during the summer months. Enjoy your trips and we look forward to seeing you when you return! If you have not already done so, please consider signing up for recurring giving. It’s fast, it’s simple, and it really helps us keep programs going during the summer months. Learn more about our giving options here .

We have CATHOLICISM this summer and some exciting book studies planned for the fall so keep an eye out for those announcements.

Youth Programs
Bible Study -  May 30
Alive In You - Our group will be headed to the Alive in You Conference/Camp June 24-30. This is the second time Life Teen will be participating in this rewarding and meaningful experience. We want to get every spot filled because we want as many teens as possible to have the opportunity to dive into this radical form of service.
About Alive in You - The vision of Alive in You is to enable our participants to open their hearts and allow Christ to become the center of their lives. Our goal is to educate, motivate and provide young people with a life changing Catholic experience. Alive in You is grounded in the beliefs and teachings of the Catholic Church and we strive to provide the perfect balance of faith, service, education and fun.

It is most important that our participants return home with a practical sense of how to live their faith. Through education and experiencing the Sacraments, they will have a renewed sense of their Catholic identity and a firm foundation to continue their walk with Christ.
Please pray for the 15 middle school teens going to EDGE summer camp June 3-8.
