All Saints is pleased to be the recipient of Mustard Seed grants from the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia to launch the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program in 2001.  We open several of our programs to the community and children outside of our parish throughout the year.   Sessions are held during the school year (October through June). A nominal yearly fee is charged to cover materials and snacks for the children. Enrollment is limited.  Scholarships are avaialble.  Registration is available on a rolling basis.
