Saints Speak - 4/6/2023 - Gratitude and Appreciation
Please take a few minutes to reflect on today’s quote from Pope Francis:
“For all the obstacles we see before us, gratitude and appreciation should prevail over concerns and complaints.”
Today’s words from Pope Francis are so simple, yet so beautiful. How often in our lives do we focus on the negative, looking for what could or did go wrong? How often do we fail to show gratitude and appreciation for the MANY wonderful blessings around us? If we make a conscious choice to focus more on the good than the bad and to appreciate rather than complain, just imagine how it will change our mood, our outlook, and overall view of our lives. Our Lord sees the good in each one of us, focusing on how we are made in His image rather than on our sinful choices. Let’s make an effort to do the same in our own lives.
Thank you to all families who have joined us to participate in the Stations of the Cross this week. We are grateful to join with you in prayer! Please also consider participation in your parish’s Triduum services. Information from each of our parishes can be found below.

2023-2024 Tuition Payment
As a reminder, we require a $250 non-refundable payment per family that will be credited to next year’s 2023-2024 tuition. This payment will be charged to your current FACTS agreement, and payable by Monday, April 17, 2023. Families who do not pay this amount, which will be credited to 2023-2024 tuition, will forfeit their student’s enrollment spot at that time. Please be aware that a couple of grade levels are already full and waitlisting at this time. If you do not plan to return to All Saints and have not previously informed the school, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please click here for an updated copy of the 2023-2024 school calendar. There is only one event that has changed; next year’s First Communion Mass has been moved to Friday, May 17, 2024. This will align better with our parish First Communions.
