All Saints Church Mission Statement

We are a faith filled community of people from diverse back grounds committed to bringing Jesus Christ to others through the sacraments, the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, and other forms of prayer and worship. As a community of Predominantly African American People, we draw upon our rich heritage to celebrate, express and live our beliefs in Jesus Christ and His word.

Under the leadership of the Society of St. Joseph of the Sacred Heart (Josephites), we are challenged to meet the spiritual, Intellectual and temporal needs of the community and to preach and teach as Jesus did. We promote appreciation and awareness of our multi-cultural heritage and spirituality. We strive to build the kingdom of God by promoting peace and justice for all, and that all people are created equal.

Lenten Guidelines - Fasting & Abstinence

Fasting
Fasting is to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by all Catholics who are 18 years of age but not yet 59. Those who are bound to fast may take only one full meal. Two smaller meals are permitted if necessary to maintain strength according to each one's needs, but eating solid foods between meals is not allowed.

Abstinence
Abstinence from meat is to be observed by all Catholics 14 years or older on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all Fridays of Lent. The determination of certain days as obligatory days of penance should not be understood as limiting the occasions for Christian penance.

Special Prayers

All Saints Day Prayer (Nov 1)

God our Father, source of all holiness, the work of Your hands is manifest in Your saints, the beauty of Your truth is reflected in their faith. May we who aspire to have part in their joy be filled with the spirit that blessed their lives, so that having shared their faith on earth may we also know their peace in your kingdom. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen

The glorious company of the apostles praise Thee. The goodly fellowship of the prophets praise Thee. The white-robed army of martyrs praise Thee. All Thy saints and elect with one voice do acknowledge Thee, O Blessed Trinity, one God!

Act of Contrition

My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.
In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.
Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us.
In his name, my God, have mercy. Amen.
