Evening of Remembrance
Sunday, November 3
6:30 p.m. Quiet Reflection
7:30 p.m. Service of Remembrance
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. At 7:30 p.m. a brief memorial service will be held in the sanctuary during which the names of those we have lost will be read.
If you have friends and family you would like commemorated during this service, PLEASE USE THE RED SIGN-UP BOOK IN THE PASS-THROUGH BETWEEN THE MAIN HALLWAY AND THE NARTHEX. All names should be submitted by Wednesday, October 20th. All names will appear in the bulletin on Sunday, Nov. 3rd. Please print the names plainly to ensure correct spelling.
There will be quiet time beginning at 6:30 p.m. 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. 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.
