Remembrance of All Saints

Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday November 1, 3, & 4, 2018

 

All Saints Worship Service

Thursday, November 1,  2018                    7:30 pm

John Rutter‘s Requiem is a musical setting of parts of the Latin funeral mass with two added psalms  – Psalm 130 “Out of the Deep” and beloved Psalm 23 “The Lord is My Shepherd”.   It was completed in 1985 and was written in memory of Rutter’s father, who died the previous year. In the first six months after publication it received over five hundred orchestral performances in America alone.  Rutter envisioned this work as a requiem for our time.  The beauty and accessibility of the music and the profound melding of text and tune have endeared the work to countless singers and listeners.

A Quiet Day For All Saints

Saturday, November 3, 2018                    8:30 am-2:00 pm

There are many things that can only be seen through eyes that have cried.
– Oscar Romero

All Saints Sunday (Nov. 4 this year) provides all of us with the opportunity to remember and celebrate those we love but see no more. But as we remember and celebrate, we also grieve. This year we are offering the opportunity for all who grieve to bring their remembrances, feelings of loss, and need for healing to a Quiet Day of preparation for All Saints.

Meeting from 8:30 am until 2:00 pm on Saturday, November 3, 2018, this program will offer a time for prayer and reflection, a time to share stories of those we miss, and a time to sit in the presence of our risen Lord and allow his healing love to enfold us.

Whether your loss is recent or your grief has been a long-time companion, you are invited to take part in this experience.

All Saints Sunday Worship

Sunday, November 4, 2018          Services at 8:30 & 11:00 am

Our All Saints celebration culminates in Sunday morning’s festive worship.  We will remember those from Phinney who have died this past year, and we welcome new saints into the Body of Christ through the celebration of Holy Baptism at both services.  You are invited to bring photos of loved ones now deceased and place them on tables in the sanctuary. We celebrate the baptisms of Cassia Laudadio and Kincade Shutes-David.
