There is always a place for you at All Saints Parish.
It is our goal as a church community to exemplify this statement (based on Micah 6:8) through our parish ministries. These ministries are carried out by our parishioners within our six ministry commissions, and led by our Parish Pastoral Council.
All Saints Parish was created on July 1, 2015 with the merger of two of Evansville’s oldest parishes:
St. Anthony Parish and St. Joseph Parish. The merger has created a strong parish and positioned us to have even greater impact on our community as an expression of our faith.
Interested In Becoming Catholic?
Welcome to All Saints Parish! We are excited that you are interested in learning more about Jesus and the Catholic Church. Whatever the reason for your interest in the Catholic Church, please be assured that we are excited to have the opportunity to welcome you and to accompany you as you explore faith in Jesus and belonging in the Catholic Church.
The A-Men’s Club of All Saints Parish was established to promote the spiritual well-being of the men of All Saints Parish, encourage club members to actively participate in Parish activities, foster cooperation with other Parish organizations, and contribute to the general welfare of the Parish and the community.
The A-Men’s Club mission is to establish a faith based community environment focusing on improving our relationship with God by serving others, fostering fellowship, and emulating Christ.
We accomplish our mission by attending monthly planning meetings, conducting fundraising activities for the Church, participating in Parish social events, and involvement with numerous community ministries and outreach activities.
The All Saints Women’s Group is a newly formed group within the parish. Our mission is to encourage and unite the women of All Saints Parish to join in prayer, service, and fellowship to build a closer relationship with Christ. We meet in the St. Anthony Cafeteria each month on the third Monday at 6:00pm.
The All Saints Women’s Club has been involved in service work by preparing meals for the NICU at Deaconess Gateway Hospital, collecting items for Birthright of Evansville, and preparing meals, and collecting toiletries for Ruth’s House (a homeless shelter for women).
We have also looked at different types of prayer and meditation to bring us closer to each other and God. We invite you to join us for our meetings and bring a friend! If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Parish Office at 812-423-5209. We look forward to seeing you!

The Bruté Society
WHAT IS THE BRUTÉ SOCIETY?
The Bruté Society is an honorary association of southwestern Indiana Catholic lay persons who have been recognized by their fellow parishioners as outstanding models of Christian stewardship.
The Bruté Society was established in 1990 as an official activity of the Diocese of Evansville, Indiana.
ORIGIN OF THE NAME
The Bruté Society is named for Servant of God Bishop Simon Bruté who was appointed the first bishop of Vincennes in 1834 and was a great example of Catholic stewardship. At that time, the territory of the Vincennes Diocese included all of Indiana as well as about one third of Illinois. The name “The Bruté Society” represents the rich spiritual and historical heritage of the present Diocese of Evansville.
PURPOSE AND GOALS OF THE SOCIETY
The Bruté Society was established to accomplish several related purposes:
- To acknowledge and give thanks to God for exemplary Catholic stewardship demonstrated by individual members of the parishes of the Diocese of Evansville.
- To promote an ever-deepening commitment to stewardship as the way of life for all Catholics in southwestern Indiana.
- To give public witness to the unity of all parishes of the Diocese of Evansville.
- To provide an annual inspirational celebration for the Catholic Church in southwestern Indiana.
THE SIMON BRUTÉ MEDAL
As a special symbol of membership in The Bruté Society, each member receives a beautiful, distinctive medallion known as the “Simon Bruté Medal.”
The ribbon from which this medal hangs is placed around the neck of new members by the bishop as part of the induction ceremony.
The Simon Bruté medal was fashioned from the official diocesan stewardship logo. This logo depicts the three stewardship “Ts” (Treasure, Time and Talent) presented in a way that looks like three people arrayed in a triangle. At the center stands the powerful symbol of the cross representing the core of the Christian Faith. The words “The Bruté Society” ring the inner design to symbolize that The Bruté Society members are, first and foremost, good stewards.
