All Saints' Sunday

Posted: 11/4/2016

The feast of All Saints' falls this year on November 6. As many will remember, All Saints' Day is one of the seven Major Feasts of the Christian year, and a particular favorite at Holy Comforter. On that day, we will hear some of the most memorable scriptural passages of the entire lectionary cycle, sing some of the most delightful hymns in our Hymnal, and, above all, rejoice in the fact that God has, through our baptism into the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, made us all saints of God. It is a day for remembering and being grateful for all those whose examples of holiness and faithfulness guide and inspire us today. All Saints' truly is one of the most joyous days of the year; and this year, we will have the special privilege of welcoming into the family of God two new members of the family of God: Connor Trenary Kelly, son of Pete and Kirby Kelly and grandson of Peter and Jane Kelly, and James Rutherford Wilson, son of P.K. and John Wilson. It is also Pledge Sunday, the day when we will give thanks for the financial commitments made in support of our common ministry and our outreach into the community and the world. Don't miss this festive and merry day!
