Gratitude Sunday is our opportunity to give special thanks for God’s goodness and grace in our lives, offering our pledge cards on the altar as symbols of our dedication of our lives to God’s service. Throughout October, we have been observing our annual season of stewardship, during which we prayerfully consider our financial commitment to St. George’s in the year ahead in light of this year’s theme, Shining Our Light. For more information or to pledge online, visit our Stewardship page, or pick up a pledge card in church.
all saints’/all souls’ sunday
november 3, 2019
On All Saints' Day, the Church honors all the saints, known and unknown. In the broad sense, all we who are baptized are included in this category, but from the beginning of the Christian tradition, certain of the faithful whose lives were exemplary have been held before us as our models and guides. The Commemoration of All Faithful Departed, more commonly known as All Souls’ Day, falls on November 2. This day is set aside to remember those who have died to whom we have a more personal connection. Día de los Muertos is the traditional Mexican celebration of these days, which often features altars like the one here at St. Georges, honoring those who have died. These celebrations – All Saints’, All Souls’, and Día de los Muertos – are tied in with our belief in the Communion of Saints, that all of God’s people, in this earthly life and in the various states of the larger life, are connected in one communion. At St. George’s, as at many other churches, we observe this sacred time with a special altar. On All Saints’ Sunday/All Souls’ Sunday, all are encouraged to bring pictures and/or mementos of loved ones who have died, to be placed on the altar. A sign-up sheet will also be available if you would like your loved one’s name added to the list of those remembered.
