All Saints Sunday
November 3 at 8:30 am-12:30 pm
Commemorating Our Beloved Dead
All Saints’ Day, celebrated November 1 or the nearest Sunday afterward, is characterized by the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) as a Principal Feast, “taking precedence over any other day or observance” (BCP 15). The day is set aside to remember and commend the dead: all Christians, past and present; all saints, known and unknown.
The Book of Common Prayer recommends All Saints’ Day as one of the four holy days especially appropriate for the administration of Holy Baptism (Holy Women, Holy Men, 662). This recommendation strives to make clear themes of newness of life, our membership in the communion of saints.
At St. James, we will also recognize any new members and welcome them into our family.
