All Saints' Day, also known as All Hallows' Day, Feast of All Saints, or Solemnity of All Saints, is a Christian festival celebrated in honor of all the saints, known and unknown. In Western Christianity, it is celebrated on November 1st by the Roman Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, the Methodist Church, the Lutheran Church, and other Protestant churches.
Christian celebration of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day stems from a belief that there is a powerful spiritual bond between those in heaven, and the living; All Saints Day revolves around "giving God solemn thanks for the lives and deaths of his saints," including those who are "famous or obscure." As such, individuals throughout the Church Universal are honored, such as Paul the Apostle, Augustine of Hippo and John Wesley, in addition to individuals who have personally led one to faith in Jesus, such as one's grandmother or friend.
All Saints’ Episcopal Church will celebrate on Sunday, November 3rd, following the 10:50 a.m. service in the beautiful Woodsby Hall. Please mark your calendar to celebrate this very special holy day with your church family. We will start off with an elaborate fruit and cheese display, then have a buffet lunch complete with carving stations for both roast beef and lamb, chicken cordon blue will be your third option! You may wish to finish off this fabulous meal with a selection from the assorted desserts that will be available.
