Religious activities[edit]

Students attend mass, an act of worship involving the eucharist in the Roman Catholic Church, two times a week. The school also encourages parents to participate in Mass services. Students also have the opportunity to receive a confession service, referred to as the Sacrament of Reconciliation, every three months during the school year. All School Masses are held on any holy day when the students are in attendance.

During the month of May students honor Mary, the mother of Jesus in the Bible, through a crowning ceremony. The students proceed from St. Frances Cabrini Church to St. Joseph Church, during which time students pray the Rosary. The May Crowning Queen is elected from among the eighth grade girls. The teacher and administration give nominees to the Pastor for a final decision.

Students at All Saints Catholic School are taught traditional Catholic prayers and informal petition prayers over the course of their attendance.
