The Feast of All Saints, November 3—All Saints Sunday, our patronal feast, is a big day in the life of our parish. We’ll mark our feast day with worship and celebration, a potluck luncheon at 11:45 a.m., and the chance to view displays from all the ministries of All Saints’ Parish. Evensong at 5:30 will feature the chanting of the names of our deceased loved ones. (Forms are included in your bulletin and also available in the office and church.) You’re invited to bring paintings, portraits, and photographs to adorn the nave with a “cloud of witnesses.”

The book club will meet for dinner on Tuesday, November 5, at 6:00 p.m. and meet the following Tuesday, November 12, for book discussion. Contact Claudia Ward at or 373-5069 if you plan to attend the dinner.
