All Saints Women’s Organization (ASWO)
All women of the parish -- from young moms to great-grandmothers, single and married, working, stay at home, and retired -- are automatically members of ASWO. Members participate in various activities of faith and fellowship, as well as service projects to benefit our parish. ASWO’s primary fundraiser is the Hearts and Hands Bazaar held each fall to address the various needs of our All Saints Community. The organization also has nine circles, smaller groups of women working together on special projects and social events throughout the year. ASWO, along with the Ladies Auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus, sponsor the annual Ladies Day of Reflection.

The Fall Festival is a major fellowship event that takes place on the All Saints Church campus each year in September. The Festival is a family-friendly, two-day event with great food, beverages, live entertainment, bingo, silent auction, and carnival games with prizes for children of all ages. It takes a tremendous number of volunteer hours to make our Festival a success. It also needs sponsors – both individuals and organizations - for food and entertainment booths.

Newcomers Welcome Committee
From the church’s earliest beginnings, Christians have worked to build closely integrated communities of love and friendship. At All Saints we wish to make every individual feel a sense of trust and comfort, and for each person to know that they truly belong. The committee strives to make newcomers, and inactive parishioners who are now coming back to the church, feel at home here at All Saints. Volunteers are needed to staff the Welcome Center after weekend Masses, to help with our quarterly Newcomers Breakfast, and to welcome every new family that registers.
