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.

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.
As we celebrate our Centennial this weekend, it is important for us as a family to take a moment to express our gratitude to the many individuals, who over the years, has made this Centennial Celebration a reality.
We need to remember Fr. Larkin, the pastor of Holy Name of Mary, who in the early days began the nurturing of the seeds of the Catholic faith within the lives of our ancestors and founders of All Saints Catholic Church. Thank you. We need to remember Archbishop Blenk, S.M. who first had the vision of a Church on the West Bank for the African American Catholic Community, and Archbishop Shaw, who with the assistance of the Josephtes, brought that vision into reality. Thank you.
