All Souls' Day, November 2, 2012

On Friday, 2 November, we mark All Soul's Day, a time for Christians to remember and uphold to God all those who have died. This is not a new tradition in the Church, but was first instituted at the monastery in Cluny, France, in 993 CE and quickly spread throughout the Christian world. The theological underpinning of this feast day is the acknowledgement of human frailty.

We participate in this ancient tradition at St. Peter's Church by holding an All Souls' Service at 10 am on Friday, 2 November. All are welcome.
