ALL SAINTS SUNDAY
At Trinity All Saints Sunday is a time to remember the faithfully departed saints in our lives, not limited to just in the past year, but of all years. We will also celebrate that in Christ Jesus we have all been declared saints - for his righteousness has become our righteousness.
Bring your photos and knick-knacks for the Remembrance Table that will be located near the chancel
Fill out a remembrance slip as you pick up your bulletin for the departed saints in your life that you desire for us to remember in prayer
We will be lighting candles in the congregation and shining forth the light of promise as we read the names of the faithfully departed during the worship service
As the service concludes, folks will be invited to visit the Memorial Butterfly Gardens to scatter rose petals and place pots of Rosemary in remembrance of departed loved ones.
Rosemary is commonly recognized as a symbol of remembrance - even Shakespeare noted its emblematic qualities in Hamlet . Sprigs of rosemary were used in ancient times and laid at grave sites to demonstrate loyalty. It can be used to mark an event or a person as can rose petals.
