There is always a place for you at All Saints Parish.
GrowING in Faith
GrowING In Faith…
Here at All Saints Parish, we offer several opportunities for all parishioners, young and old, to grow in faith. Whether you would like to participate in a Scripture Study, JustFaith!, Family Faith, Becoming Catholic (OCIA), or one of our other many programs and offerings, we offer opportunities for everyone to grow in their faith and gather with other parishioners!
Saints to Live By
For many Catholics, Saints are viewed as being the heroes of the church. While they are not directly worshiped, Saints are held in such regard that Catholics will often pray to them in order to request their aid. With the exception of the archangels, Saints were ordinary people, who lived ordinary lives. During their lives, each and every saint was considered to be a positive role model. Their selfless and generous natures could be seen in their actions, and devotion to helping humanity.
Many Saints had a life mission that drove them towards helping others, while spreading the word of God. Through their actions and efforts, Saints were able to help humanity as a whole, in their own way. Their actions, made them legends of their own time, and today they inspire the way in which we live out our lives.

Joy of the Gospel
Since his election, Pope Francis has been guiding and nudging our Church to rise up to meet the challenges of our era. The foundation of his vision can be found in his first encyclical, “The Joy of the Gospel”. Tom Bogenschutz has taught and lead several discussions on this document and recently produced this video that summarizes the Pope’s encyclical. It is 30 minutes in length and offers an overview of the Pope and his dream for the Church.
Bible Study Groups
We have several Bible Study Groups that meet throughout the year.
Wednesday Morning Bible Study – The Wednesday Morning Bible Study meets every Wednesday morning from 8:00 am to 9:30 am in the Fr. Neihaus Room in the CFL Building. This group looks at the upcoming Sunday readings and how these readings apply in our lives. There is no cost, no materials, no registration required.
New Testament Bible Studies – New Testament Bible Studies are held in the Fall and Spring on Monday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm and take an in-depth look at a New Testament Gospel or New Testament Letter. Studies usually cost $10 and are from 6 to 14 weeks long with all materials provided.

The Diocese of Evansville has kicked off a Eucharistic Renewal in which our Parishes, Catholic Schools and Diocesan Offices will be participating! At the same time, all of the Catholic dioceses in the United States will be holding a Eucharistic Renewal (referred to as a “revival” on the national level). Eventually, the Renewal will culminate in a National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis from July 17–21, 2024.
A pilgrimage can be a transformational inner journey, but we are also hoping to have a community impact as well. During our pilgrimages we will have opportunities to meet and develop relationships with others of faith who are interested in social justice.
Our goal is to gather a variety of people of all faiths from the Evansville area to travel together to deepen their knowledge of social justice issues.
A Women’s Retreats are offered periodically, on a Saturday, usually during the Season of Lent. Women from the Parish gather for a day of fun, food, and fellowship as we prepare ourselves for Ash Wednesday and the season of Lent.
Watch the bulletin for the next Women’s Retreat registration information. Retreats are less than $30 per attendee with lunch and all materials provided. Registrations and fees are required in advance.
All Saints Parish has a long history of involvement in work of justice and charity.
All Saints Parish offers a number of ways to serve those in our community who are disadvantaged or the victims of injustice.
Our Season of Stewardship
Lent is our time to get intense about deepening our relationship with God. Our Lenten tradition of more prayer, fasting and almsgiving exemplifies that search. It’s appropriate then, during this time, to reflect upon and make decisions about our own stewardship commitment.
In the prior weeks, we will invite you to renew your personal commitment to how you serve and support your parish. We encourage you to include this as part of your Lenten prayer.
On Palm Sunday, we will invite you to return your treasure commitment card as part of our final preparation for Holy Week and Easter. Let’s allow an expanding spirit of generosity and love to enter our hearts in this sacred season.
