All Saints’ Day combined service with

On Sunday, November 4, we will celebrate the Feast of All Saints. This year we will be joined by the congregation of St. Katherine of Alexandria, and will have a special preacher - The Rev. Melanie Mullen, the Presiding Bishop’s Officer for Racial Reconciliation, and a Seminary classmate of the our Rector.
We will have combined choirs, Brass Reflections, and a festive coffee hour following. We hope to see you there.
