We celebrate All Saints Day on Sunday, November 5. From the earliest days of Christian history, it has been the custom to honor the saints. As the church expanded, some of the faithful followers of Jesus in times past were being forgotten. So the Church established All Saints Day—a fitting time to thank God for the lives of all Christian people and to be reminded of their legacy of faith-filled living. We will also remember those who have died in the Lord. You may give a white rose in memory of your loved one ($2 each). These will be placed near the altar and you may take your rose(s) home after the Divine Service. We also celebrate the First Communion of young people who have taken a special class to prepare them to receive the body and blood of Christ.
We invite you to join us in this communion of saints.
