It's difficult to be who God has called us to be in today's world. How do we follow Jesus while also leading others? How can we strike a balance between the obligations of job (or education) and the duties of home? How can we love our spouses (and others) in the same way that Christ loved the Church?

To discover how to be "God's men" in today's culture, come to a casual atmosphere where men may enjoy excellent instruction, engaging conversation, and getting to know other men on the same journey.

Every Wednesday evening from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. the Men of the Eucharist gather in the parish Library.

For more information contact, Mike Schulte.

The Charismatic Prayer group meets on Tuesday afternoons from 3:00pm to 4:00pm at the church's lower level.

The All Saints Music Ministry has a long history of supplying top-notch music in a range of genres to amplify our worship services.

There are several areas of the music ministry where you could be interested in getting involved. Which one could be the one for you?

All types of instrumental music are enjoyable to us. We are blessed to have musicians available right now that are proficient in playing the piano, guitar, flute, cello, horn, and percussion.

We most desperately need keyboard players.

Are you on the fence? Start out by limiting the number of songs you play during Mass to just one or two.

Music singers who lead songs or sing in small groups are crucial.

At least once every four to six weeks, cantors take the music at Mass.

Rehearsals are determined by song choices, experience, and individual schedules.

The Psalm must be proclaimed by the cantor.

More cantors would be a wonderful addition to the All Saints Music Ministry.

The SATB choral format is used by our adult choir. (Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass).

September through May, this group meets on Wednesdays from 6:30pm to 8:00pm to practice.

This choir currently has 36 members. The tenor area is where we are most in need of new singers.

Dennis Hodge is the choir's outstanding conductor.

New participants are always welcome in each of these forms of music.

Please think about how you could participate if you have a musical interest.

For more information contact, Matthew Burrier.

Volunteer Opportunities

All Saints Scrip

Assist in processing Scrip orders after masses and help with local Scrip pick ups. Scrip table order processing is a small time commitment and you will be with another Scrip volunteer filling Scrip orders after weekend mass.

Local Pick Ups are done between Monday and Thursday mornings on your schedule. Tell us what Scrip route you prefer - we have five different routes.

The Scrip Coordinator places the Scrip orders on Mondays and issues checks. Pick Up volunteers drop the Scrip check off at the retailer, pick up the Scrip cards, then drop your pick up off at the parish office and you are done.
