Tuesday, Nov 2, 5: p.m. Community All Souls Service

November 2 – All Souls’ Evensong, 5:30 pm, A service of music and prayer to remember deceased family and friends, is particularly  dedicated to those whose lives have been touched by suicide: family members, friends, healthcare workers, police, social workers.  As a community, we will remember all who have died by their own hand and to share of the mourning of all people touched by the loss of friends, family, and community members.  Together we will acknowledge our collective reluctance to reach out to those who suffer, and will stand in witness to God’s redeeming love for all.  Although this service will draw on the Anglican tradition of Evensong and the centuries old Christian All Souls tradition to remember those who have died, this service is purposefully intended to encompass people of all faiths., and we invite all persons mourning those who have died to join us for this service of remembrance.
