In the Church, we welcome opportunities to feast, to celebrate together the abundance of life we have in Christ. Indeed, such feasts are every bit as important to our spiritual development as our opportunities to fast.
In planning our fall schedule, we have decided to embrace the practice of feasting in the midst of our annual stewardship season, in order that we might better recognize how closely connected are the two virtues of hospitality and generosity. As such, we will host our annual Supper of the Lamb on Friday, November 1, marking the feast of All Saints with a party fit for the Kingdom. We will not be alone for this celebration, but will be joined by our brothers and sisters from JACOA!
As we prepare for this celebration, we invite each All Saints family to bring with them an item capable of feeding 10-15 people. Families whose last names begin with A-G will bring side items, vegetables, or salads. Families whose last names begin with H-P will bring main courses, casseroles, or meats. And families whose last names begin with Q-Z will bring desserts.
We will close our festivities with Compline, inviting any who are able and willing to join us afterwards for a campout on the church grounds. It is sure to be a night to remember!
We are hosting a parish-wide, potluck dinner called Supper of the Lamb on All Saints Day, Friday, November 1 at 5:30 p.m. The Family Campout has been moved to Friday, November 8.
