On Sunday, November 3rd All Saints Church will celebrate its Patronal Feast, All Saints Day.  This service, with roots going back to the ancient church, has the theme of recognizing all the saints, those known and especially, unknown.  We like to recognize the unsung holiness of the common woman and common man.  Rather than focus on the history of the grand and glorious throughout history, we shine the spotlight of our spiritual gaze upon ordinary people living extraordinary lives of loving self-sacrifice and service.  


From the schoolteacher who helps a rejected child adjust to a hostile class, to the nurse who places a cool washcloth on a fevered forehead, or the friend who gives up a night out to listen to someone who just needs to talk; acts of sacred caring are expressions of the divine in this world.  


Please join us on November 3rd at 10:00 AM as we honor those lives that are so easily overlooked, but whose acts of human compassion and kindness have brought hope, healing and God’s love to countless people throughout the ages.
