Dear Beloved of Trinity Church: no, it’s not yet Halloween, but we are looking ahead to a special day in our Church calendar. On Sunday, November 5th , we will celebrate All Saints Sunday at our 9:30 AM service of Holy Eucharist.
We have two Invitations for you! First, please send any names you would like us to read aloud on that Sunday to our Church Office as soon as possible.
Secondly, we also invite you to bring photos of your Saints, your loved ones, to place in the nooks and crannies around our historic Sanctuary. Now, these can be loved ones among your family or friends that you remember with love. Or, they can be images of the saints of Christian history.
Oh, the stories such pictures tell! When they are with us in our historic Sanctuary, they are a visible reminder of an invisible truth: the communion of saints surrounding and upholding us, always.
All Saints Day - a day when we glimpse eternity. We remember our own saints: those who taught us courage and honesty, how to love and do justice, walk humbly with God. Good and faithful folk who, in their own way, built the Kingdom of God on earth.
All Saints Day. We remember those saints of Christian history who exhibited unusual courage, extravagant generosity, and peace in the face of adversity. We remember those who gave even their very lives.
Send us a name, bring in a photo! We will find that they are here, with us! They are in us, among us, between us … all around us. Invite a family member or friend to pray with us on All Saints Sunday.
