Sunday, November 6
At All Saints Church the Feast of All Saints Day is a Celebration of Life in the Presence of Death. It is the day the church celebrates in music and liturgy the truth that this community — what we call the communion of saints — is stronger even than death. It is the day we traditionally honor all who have died: the great martyrs of history who gave their lives to defend their faith in the risen Christ, as well as those we have personally known and loved; those we hold close to our hearts and minds and those who are victims of cruelty, war and violence. And this year it is the day we welcome Mike Kinman on his first Sunday as the 10th Rector of All Saints Church.
At all services the memorial book, containing the names of loved ones is placed on the altar. At 9:00 & 11:15 a.m. Coventry Choir and Chamber Orchestra will offer Requiem by Maurice Duruflé, a work of remarkable beauty and power. Incense will be used during the 9:00 & 11:15 a.m. services. And Mike Kinman will preach at 7:30, 9:00, 11:15 a.m. and at the 1:00 p.m. bilingual service.
There will be an “Incense-Free” zone in the Guild Room.
If you can’t be with us in person join us via live-stream for the 11:15 a.m. service
