Sacred Heart Chapel is the place of liturgical worship for the students of All Saints School. In it liturgies and paralitugies are celebrated commemorating the holydays or other significant feasts throughout the church year.
The students of grades 4-5-6 are invited to participate in the All Saints School choir. A few seventh and eighth grade students choose to remain in choir if their schedules permit. Choir meets for practice once a week - Wednesday from 1:20 to 2:00. The choir participates in all liturgies and paraliturgies held throughout the school year. Mrs. Mary Noga is the choir director.
Each class visits the chapel on the first Friday of each month for Eucharistic Adoration.
All Saints School is blessed to have the priests from St. John Vianney visit the school each week. They also officiate at our liturgies and paraliturgies. Father Tom Johns, our pastor, teaches kindergarten and our first, second, and third graders. They enjoy his stories and Father has a knack for getting them thinking. Father Peter Morris teaches the seventh and eight graders and Father Marty Dober teaches in fourth, fifth and sixth grade. Father Steve Breck, from St. Mary Magdalene and Father Kevin Liebhardt, from St. Justin Martyr also visit when they can. The children continue to pray for our priests and thank God for sending such wonderful people to serve our parish and school.
There are many service projects available to our students. We have several food drives throughout the year to help the St. Vincent de Paul Society. The students also make cards and signs for men and women on retreat and those in need.
The Jr. High students are required to complete service hours.
(Grade 6 - 6 hours, Grade 7 - 10 hours and Grade 8 - 14 hours.)
Prayer Partners - The Prayer Partners program pairs older students with younger children. Students in grades 5-8 each have a Prayer Partner in grades – 4. (The students in Kindergarten also partner with Grade 4.)
Prayer partners read together in the classroom, celebrate various holiday activities together, go to assemblies together and attend some Masses together.
This program gives the older students an opportunity to gain responsibility as well as keeping them connected to the younger grades. It also gives the younger students an opportunity to develop a special relationship with an older student who can serve as a role model and friend.
Sister Veronica is the Religion and Liturgy coordinator for All Saints School. She teaches Grades 1 through 5 once a week. The students learn liturgical vocabulary, Bible study and are prepared for feasts in the liturgical year. Sister is the Jr. High Religion teacher. She meets with them daily.
Father Robert Kline
All Saints of St. John Vianney School was founded by Father Kline in 1977. There are so many stories and memories that can be shared about this special priest. The children loved having him visit and teach in their classrooms. His religion lessons touched their lives. He enjoyed talking to the kids and told them corny jokes but he most especially loved saying Mass at school and giving the children the sacraments. Celebrating Father’s 50th and 60th ordination anniversaries were two very special days at All Saints. He was very involved with athletics, played all sports and enjoyed the sportsmanship. Fr. Kline passed away on June 24, 2011. He will be remembered as being a good and faithful servant!
