All Saints' Sunday
Sunday, November 2
Join us as we honor those saints that have gone before us. We remember the deceased by calling their name, lighting a candle and ringing a bell for each saint in worship. Our 11am service will include movements from a Requiem Mass by Spanish Renaissance composer Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548-1611), sung by the Chancel Choir. The chant based counterpoint is mystical and profoundly spiritual, well suited to commend our blessed deceased to God.
