FROM THE RECTOR

Remembering the Faithful

The Feasts of All Saints and All Souls this Sunday, November 1

Hallowe’en (or All Hallow’s Eve) is the vigil of The Feast of All Saints on November 1—a day on which the Church honors all the blessed faithful.

This day is followed by All Souls’ Day, November 2, where the Church remembers the faithful departed.

During our service this Sunday we will acknowledge both by having a moment of remembrance at the conclusion of The Prayers of the People. I will offer a word of invitation to anyone who wishes to speak aloud the name of someone departed as we honor their memory and pray for the repose of their soul.

I encourage everyone to participate who feels so inclined. You are welcome to speak aloud more than one name if there are more people you wish to remember in our service.

MONON BELL GAME 2016

Biggest sporting event of the year between DePauw and Wabash—your help needed!

EVERY other year, Saint Andrew’s staffs the concession stands for the largest sporting event between DePauw University and Wabash College: the Monon Bell Game. This is one of those years!

This single day alone brings in a significant amount of revenue for our Non-Food Pantry, and is an essential part of funding our ministry outreach.

The number of volunteers required to staff the day is considerable. As this is something of an “all hands on deck†moment for our ministry, all members are asked to consider helping us staff our concessions stands that day.

⇪ Sign up for a slot for the Monon Bell Game or any other concessions opening.
