All Saints’ Sunday ~ Nov. 3

All Saints Day - art by Timothy Mietty

All Saints’ Sunday

November 3 | 9:00 and 11:00 am

Join in the moving service to remember and celebrate the lives of the departed saints of Wellshire. We will speak the names of those who died during the previous year and ring bells in their memory.  

On All Saints’ Day we remember our loved ones who have passed away with a special ceremony. We welcome Gregory Walker, nationally acclaimed violinist, to both services. Together with Patrick Lee he is performing works by Gershwin and Massenet as well as Barber’s beloved Adagio for Strings at 11:00 am. During our more contemporary service Confluence and the Celebration Singers are presenting additional musical selections for All Saints’ Day, including very special arrangements of Give Me Jesus and I Shall Wear a Crown. Daniel Romero and the Sanctuary Choir are leading the more traditional 11:00 am service, singing the beautiful Sing Me to Heaven by Daniel Gawthrop.
