sunday, november 4
On All Saints' Day, November 1st (celebrated the following Sunday), 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 2nd. 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 the 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.
Generosity Sunday is the culmination of our season of stewardship at St. George’s, Transforming Generosity. During this season, we hear scripture readings, sermons, and personal reflections about stewardship as a spiritual practice and an act of generosity. On Generosity Sunday, we gather and dedicate all the pledges we have received, placing our pledge cards on the altar as a tangible reminder of our commitment to St. George’s.
