All Souls Day
Share in our Seminary tradition…
As autumn’s days unfold, the Church invites us to look to all those who have walked this path before us – both those recognized as saints as well as our departed loved ones now living in God’s presence.
Every year, on the evening of All Souls Day, the seminary community gathers in the dark chapel. A solitary candle burns next to our Book of Remembrance. Its pages are now full and heavy with memory made holy by faith. During our prayer service, we will call out each set of the names inscribed in this Book of Remembrance. The young man who wrote them will come forward, light a candle and place it in a box of sand before the altar. Our hearts take light and hope from the quiet glow of grace-filled memories of all those who have loved us and gone before us to God.
If you would you like our seminarians to bring the names of your loved ones to this All Souls Day prayer service as well, please fill out the form below.
