All Saints’ Day is a day to recall those who have died in the faith throughout history. Obviously there would be no Christianity without faithful disciples of Christ who have held fast to their faith in good times and in bad. There have been countless martyrs who have died witnessing to the love of God and the saving grace of Christ. And sad to say, in some parts of the world, Christians are still persecuted and even slain for their beliefs. Take time to think of our Christian heritage, and remember with thanksgiving those who have held fast to their faith no matter what.

Did someone you love pass away in the last year (between 11/05/17 and 11/03/18)?  Would you like us to remember that person with a special time of prayer and consideration on All Saints’ Day?  Please register your request online or complete a 2018 All Saints Day form from a Sunday bulletin (forms can also be found on the table in the Narthex) and drop it in the collection plate.
