A Service of All Souls 2020

10 Nov 2020, 10:15 a.m.

In the afternoon of All Saint's Sunday, November 1, we gathered in church for our annual service of All Souls.  In the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, candles lit up every windowsill and in a quiet and reflective service of prayers, readings, poems and music, we remembered those we love but no longer see.  

On the altar each side of the Sacrament, we lit four large candles as their names were read out, and in the chancel we made a cross of lights on the floor.  

The cross reminds us that even in the darkest of days, there is always the light and hope of new life
