All Saints Sunday

    During worship that day we will celebrate communion and also remember those from our parish who have died in the past year.  As their names are read, a candle will be lit in each person’s memory and the church bell tolled.  In addition, the Paschal Candle will be lit in memory of all our loved ones as their names are shared out loud by the congregation.  This is a day to celebrate and remember our loved ones who have entered the Church Triumphant.
