Demeria and Fr. Jack Fullen A Message from our Pastor, Fr. Bob Cilinski Happy Anniversary Congratulations to all Clergy on their Anniversaries of Ordination being celebrated this year: Fr. Bob Cilinski May 12th Fr. Gregory Thompson June 10th Fr. Francisco Mendez June 24th THE SOLEMNITY OF THE ASCENSION “Then he led them (out) as far as Bethany, raised his hands, and blessed them. As he blessed them he parted from them and was taken up to heaven. They did him homage and then returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and they were continually in the temple praising God.” ~ Luke 24:50-53 “God mounts his throne amid shouts of joy; The Lord amid trumpet blasts. Sing praise to god, sing praise; sing praise to our king, sing praise.” ~ Psalm 47:6-7 My Dear Friends, Rev. Mr. John W. Eberlein March 10th Rev. Mr. Richard T. O’Connell May 7th 31 Years (1979) 4 Years (2006) 50 Years (1960) 36 Years (1974) 22 Years (1988) Not without embarrassment does the priest learn how, through his weak and petty words, people can smile in the last moment of their life; how, through what he says, people find meaning again. He learns with gratitude how, through his ministry, people discover the glory of God. He learns how, through him, God does great things, and he is full of joy to know that to be a priest is at once the greatest demand and the greatest gift. ~ Pope Benedict XVI Today we celebrate the Ascension of the Lord. The New Testament does not end with a period but with an exclamation point! Our scriptures don’t close with a declarative statement, but open out to all ages with the hope-filled exclamation, “COME LORD JESUS!” While longing for the coming of Christ in glory at the end of time, we believe that He comes to us in these in-between times. We live in the in-between times of Christ’s ascension into heaven and His glorious second coming. The risen Christ pours out His spirit into the heart of His people. Pentecost gives birth to the Church. Our God has made us the body of Christ and the dwelling place of His Holy Spirit on earth. The Vatican II affirmed this when it stated that “the Church is Sacrament.” We are signs of intimate union with God and the unity of all mankind; we are instruments for the achievement of such union and unity. Our seven Sacraments are indeed particular actions of Christ continuing his ministry in and through the sacramental Church. Jesus prayed that “all may be one.” At the Eucharist, the Church involves the Holy Spirit to accomplish this unity in us. Our gifts of bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ given for us. The Risen Christ is really present feeding our deepest hungers and bringing us into communion with Christ. May we at All Saints recognize that the differences among us make no difference at all. All are one in Christ Jesus! Let us pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit this Pentecost. Come Lord Jesus! Love and blessings, Fr. Bob Cilinski Pastor Ever-living God and Father of us all, you give to your Church the Priesthood of your Son, Jesus, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, you provide holy priests for a holy people. We pray for all our priests, who announce the Word of God and celebrate the Sacraments, for those who are young and those who are old, for those who serve in difficult and trying circumstances, for those who are faithful and those who are faltering, and for those who have died. We entrust all our priests to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, that they may persevere with fidelity to you and to your Church. With Saint John Vianney, patron of priests, we pray that our priests may never fail to lead us to you. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. Spiritual Bouquet Cards Mark the Year for Priests, declared by Pope Benedict, by making spiritual sacrifices for our priests! Simply fill out the Spiritual Bouquet prayer cards available at the entrance to the parish or online at www.arlingtondiocese.org. Please indicate on the card, the number of Masses, Rosaries, Acts of Kindness, etc., that you will offer for our priests, and return the bottom half of the card to the Parish Office, drop it in the basket at the back of the Church, or return it by mail. There is also a space on the back to write a personal note, if you so choose. Save the Date!

Thank you for your understanding. Pro-Life Message Pastoral Care Services Supreme Court Sanity - In 2007, the US Supreme Court upheld the federal ban on “partial-birth abortion.” In that decision, the majority opinion states, “Respect for human life finds an ultimate expression in the bond of love the mother has for her child … It is self-evident that a mother who comes to regret her choice to abort must struggle with grief more anguished and sorrow more profound when she learns the process. Please notify us if you have a family member in Prince William Hospital or one of the nursing homes. A priest or Eucharistic Minister will then visit. Please leave patient’s name and room number. In order to provide pastoral care of the sick and their families, we need to be informed. Please call us at (703) 393-1411 with the name of the person in need. Please pray to end abortions in Manassas. Peaceful demonstrations are conducted along the northbound side of Sudley Road on the sidewalk between Stonewall Road and Grant Avenue. To help coordinate coverage of these hours, a sign-up sheet can be found in the back of the church. Call Aaron Messier at (703) 754-9712 for further details. God bless you for all that you do for the unborn. The Living Church: God’s Building #59 In a Series - Building Maintenance The design process will include planning for the long-term and short-term maintenance of the new or renovated building. The beauty and utility of a place of worship can be sustained only by an ongoing, careful attention to its upkeep through regular maintenance. Therefore, funds for both general maintenance and capital improvements should be anticipated in every future parish budget. Durability and maintenance expenses are critical factors in the selection of building materials and of the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. Decisions made on the basis of short-term economy can be very costly when viewed from the perspective of long-term expenses. A well-thought-out plan for maintenance that includes a financial component is necessary in the case of existing structures. In addition, special attention may be needed when the maintenance of historical buildings is at issue. St. Vincent de Paul Society If you are facing a financial emergency, please call (703) 368-2429; or, for Spanish-speaking members, please call (703) 393-1483. If you would like to learn how you can help, or join the St. Vincent de Paul Society, please call (703) 368-2429 and you will be contacted by an All Saints Parish Vincentian.

Monica Gonzalez captured a third place award in the field of Zoology for her science fair project entitled, “Can You Hear Me,” in which she studied the effect of temperature on the communication habits of crickets. Also winning a third place award was fellow seventh grader Heather Barnes for her project “Water as Fuel.” Choosing Environmental Science as her category, Ms. Barnes built a small engine which she operated at different temperature extremes. “Shhh! Is It Quiet Now?” was the title of the science fair project of seventh grader, Gwendolyn Blasco who merited an honorable mention in the category of Physics by investigating which type of insulation would best sound-proof a room. Additional participants representing All Saints at the diocesan science fair included: Alyssa DeRaymond, Patrick Fall, Isabella Meier, Ellen Orsi and Harrison Tamke. Scouting isn’t about gluing macaroni to paper plates! It offers a range of ageappropriate programs that provide fun and adventure while helping build your son’s leadership, teamwork, physical/mental fitness, and spirit of service and duty, helping him grow into a competent, caring, adult of good character. Boys can start at any level and no prior experience is required, as long as they are between six and 12 years old. Our new year starts in June, so all boys from current Kindergartener to fourth grade are invited to our open house at our next pack meeting in the Knights of Columbus Hall at 7:00pm on May 18th. Your new Scout will experience a wide range of social activities and award requirements that develop his selfresponsibility, confidence, and service ethic. Neighborhood and family centered, Cub Scouts (Grades 1-5) meet weekly or bi-weekly in small groups (dens) in homes or other community locations led by volunteer den leaders, and monthly in pack meetings with families and all other dens. They work on award requirements (advancements) at meetings and with their families, as well as take part in pack and den field trips and special Cub Camps. Along the way they also have unbelievable amounts of fun! If you have a Scouting-age boy who might be interested, give us a call. He can come to a Pack meeting, see what’s going on, and decide if it’s something he wants to be a part of. No pressure. No obligation.
