“In the tender compassion of our God the dawn from on high shall break upon us, To shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace. Luke 1: 78-79
Evening Of Remembrance Sunday, November 4
NOVEMBER 4, ALL SAINTS SUNDAY
6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Quiet Reflection
7:30 p.m. Memorial Service with
Reading of the Names
If you have friends and family you would like commemorated during this service, PLEASE LIST THEIR NAMES IN THE THE RED SIGN-UP BOOK IN THE PASS-THROUGH BETWEEN THE MAIN HALLWAY AND THE NARTHEX. All names should be submitted by Wednesday, October 31st. All names will appear in the bulletin on Sunday, November 4th.
St. Matthew’s will celebrate the lives of our family and friends who have gone on before us with a special evening service incorporating some of the traditions used by cultures around the world. There will be quiet time beginning at 6:30 for various kinds of contemplation. The sanctuary and the Coil Chapel will be reserved for silent prayer. The labyrinth will be set up in the parish hall for prayer walks. Mother Liz will be available for those who just want to talk to someone. At 7:30, a brief memorial service will be held in the sanctuary during which the names of those we have lost will be read.
We hope that you will join us to light a candle, place a flower on the cross, place a stone on the cairn, or simply say a prayer as you search for your own peace and understanding of that most mystifying aspect of life: death.
