All Saints 2020
Come by the courtyard between 6pm on Thursday evening (10/29) and the end of the evening on Halloween. Take a look at the Matt'O'Lanterns, vote for your favorite, and stop at the Altar that will be assembled for All Saints. Among other things, you will be able to light a candle for those we love and see no longer.
Join in on the Halloween fun. And spend a few moments in prayer being reminded of the great cloud of witnesses that is always with us.
Come by at your convenience to vote and to pray. Please wear a mask and maintain social distancing.
The Feast of All Saints is a special day in the Christian calendar. It's a day when we give specific thanks for the lives of the saints who lived before us and for the people we love who have gone to God ahead of us. As Anglicans, one of the beautiful pieces of the day is that we remember that while there are many Saints for us to look up to and to learn from, each one of us is a saint of God, called to follow Jesus and do God's work in the world. The date, November first, is deeply historically and theologically tied to the day that comes before it. People all over the world have long celebrated Halloween, or some version of it. For us as Christians, this is another moment in the calendar that promises us light always shines in the darkness and because of Jesus' love for us, life is always stronger than death.
