November 1: All Saints and the Installation of PB Michael Curry!

imagesSunday, November 1: All Saints Sunday. 

Please plan to join us for our celebration of the Saints – past, present and yet to come – at the Advocate on Sunday, November 1 at 10:30 AM.

The Festival of All the Saints is one of the 7 major Festivals of the Church Year. It is our custom on All Saints Sunday to surround ourselves with images of the great Cloud of Witnesses, the Communion of Saints, for our worship together. As you are led, please bring photos of those you have loved or admired who have gone before. We will post or place these photos and icons all around our worship space.

The liturgy will be followed by an All Saints Festival Potluck. As you are able, please bring a dish to share.  In honor of All Saints, consider (but don’t feel obligated) using a recipe used by a previous generation and passed on to you.
