All Saints Day celebrates the baptized people of God, living and dead, who are the body of Christ. As November heralds the dying of the landscape in many northern regions, the readings and liturgy call us to remember all who have died in Christ in the past year and whose baptism is complete. We will gather as a community in worship to observe All Saints Day on Wednesday, November 1, at 11 a.m. Central Time in the Chapel of the Incarnation or online.
We gather in the Chapel of the Incarnation and online for chapel. On Thursdays, we gather in the OCC Dining Room and on Zoom for Lunch Church.
