Mass will be followed by a celebratory luncheon in the Parish Centre. All parishioners are invited to attend both the mass and the luncheon. The pupils of the Humanities class will be performing during the festivities. The luncheon will be adult only but lunch will be provided for children on a family ticket bases in the games room.
Tickets will be available after Mass on Sunday 19 October priced $30.00 per family.
Any children from the parish who wish to dress up as saints and participate in the “Name the Saint game” are welcome to bring their customs to the parish centre and a room will be made available for changing during the luncheon.
As part of the Fraternity of Saint Peters’ commitment to ensure that All Saints continues to be a vibrant and prayerful parish we ask that all regularly attending parishioners participate in our self assessment questionnaire.
From 27th September to 19th October a packet of information will be available at the back of the church for collection by each registered household. It is important that you take your packet.
This packet includes:
1. A complementary copy of our recently published brochure – “A year to remember” together with a re-order envelope.
2. A copy of the parish survey with return envelope.
We would ask that each household complete the parish survey and submit it using the envelope provided via the collection basket or the basket provided at the back of the church no later than Sunday 26th October.
Please do not mail your survey back to the parish.
The results from the survey will be published in the bulletin and will assist the Parish Council in their efforts to guide the direction of the parish.
Further copies of the brochure “A year to remember” are available upon request and the re-order envelope should be placed in the collection basket at your convenience.

The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (Fraternitas Sacertodatlis Sancti Petri in Latin) is a Clerical Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical right, that is, a community of Roman Catholic priests who do not take religious vows, but who work together for a common mission in the world. The mission of the Fraternity is two-fold: first, the formation and sanctification of priests in the cadre of the traditional liturgy of the Roman rite, and secondly, the pastoral deployment of the priests in the service of the Church.
The spiritual formation of the priests in the Fraternity is based in the Sacred Tradition of the Church, and is founded upon four pillars:
The two crossed keys principally evoke Saint Peter, Patron of our Fraternity. They also refer to the Holy See, to which we have been united with indefectible fidelity since our foundation. The absence of a tiara and the color of the background, however, clearly distinguish our arms from those of the Apostolic See. The blue background, a Marian color, reminds us that the FSSP is under the protection of the Mother of God (Constitutions #4). Lastly, the tears commemorate the difficult historical circumstances of our inception: “Qui seminant in lacrimis, in exsultatione metent” (Ps 125, 5), as well as Saint Peter’s triple assertion of love for the Lord (Jn 21, 15-17). This number may also evoke the three central aspects of our charism – hierarchical fidelity, doctrinal rectitude and the Gregorian liturgy.
In 1988, Pope John Paul II established the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter as a Clerical Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical right, and approved its constitutions. The Fraternity was founded in response to the Holy Father’s call to ecclesial unity and the new evangelization. Hence, our name denotes a filial love and loyalty to the Supreme Pontiff. The primary patron of the Fraternity from its inception was Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, then head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, later becoming Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
In 1994, with the permission of Bishop Timlin, Father Josef Bisig announced the establishment of Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary at Elmhurst. It was soon apparent that the growing number of seminarians mandated a separate building. In 1998, at the invitation of Bishop Fabian W. Bruskewitz, Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska, the decision was made to construct a seminary in Denton, and in the fall of 2000 the new seminary opened.
Since its formation, the North American District has experienced a continuing increase in the establishment of parishes and apostolates. Under Father Devillers, first North American District Superior, and his successors, Frs. Paul Carr and George Gabet (the current District Superior), parishes and apostolates have been established in seventeen dioceses in the United States. In addition to the aforementioned dioceses they include, the Archdiocese of Denver, Colorado and the Dioceses of Rapid City (South Dakota), Little Rock (Arkansas), Lincoln and Omaha (Nebraska), Youngstown (Ohio), Paterson (New Jersey), Kansas City (Kansas), Atlanta (Georgia), Tulsa and Oklahoma City (Oklahoma), Corpus Christi and Dallas (Texas), Colorado Springs (Colorado), Indianapolis (Indiana), Sacramento (California) and Boise City (Idaho). All Saints Catholic Church became the newest parish to be served by the Fraternity, with priests taking over administrative and pastoral duties of the Parish in July 2013.
In 1995 the pastoral work of the District truly became “North American” with the invitation to the Fraternity by His Grace, Archbishop Marcel Gervais, Archbishop of Ottawa (Ontario), to minister in Canada. With the invitation of other members of the Canadian hierarchy the Fraternity has established parishes and apostolates in Ottawa and St. Catharines (Ontario), Calgary (Alberta) and Vancouver (British Columbia).
Through its first decade the number of District priests has also increased tremendously. From its original two members the District now has 75 priests engaged in pastoral or seminary work. This number continues to grow each year through ordinations.
