Alleluia Day 2019

Alleluia! Alleluia! Christ has risen! 

Alleluia Day is one of the hallmark days in the All Saints Academy K-8 calendar. Like All Saints Day, Catholic Schools Week and Via Dolorosa, it is one of just four days that the both campuses come together. Rotating between the Elementary and Middle School Campuses, this year’s celebration took place at the Middle School and included the very important people in our students’ lives. 

We began the day like all days in prayer and then headed to St. Jude Church for Mass and our May Crowning Prayer Service. The 8th grade and 2nd grade led us in honoring Mary with the 2nd graders garbed in their first communion dresses and suits. 

It was such a reverent experience for our holy mother. 

After a short praise concert practice and VIP refreshment break, students and guests packed into the gym for the ASA Talent Show. Acts ranged from musical solos to guitar playing to floor exercises. The final act, Izzy, stole the show with her rendition of Queen’s “We are the Champions.”  Two big thumbs up to all of the participants, not just for their talents, but for their courage in sharing those talents with our school community. 

After lunch and recess we gathered back in the church for Alleluia Day headlining event.  Each year Mrs. Clark leads a Praise Concert, where all of the K-8 students sing songs about God and our faith. The students do an amazing job under Mrs. Clark’s direction and this year’s concert once again did not disappoint! 

A new twist prior the singing in this year’s Praise Concert was the performance of the 8th grade band. Typically led by Mr. Palmieri, the band was conducted by 8th grade leaders in his absence.  The sounded beautiful in the church and impressed the many VIPs in attendance. 

Alleluia! Alleluia! Christ has risen!
