News from St. Paul’s – Week of November 2, 2014

In Worship
All Saints’ Sunday is the occasion on which we recall that the church is a body that transcends time, space, and death. This Sunday, you will be invited to write down the names of those you would like to remember in prayer, especially those who have gone on to join the church triumphant; you will also have the opportunity to light a candle in memory of friends or loved ones.
