St. Peter’s marks All Saints’, All Souls’ days

Published: Friday, Nov. 2, 2012 5:30 a.m. CDT

All Saints’ Day is one of the most important and significant Principal Feast Days of the church’s year. St. Peter’s Church in Sycamore will celebrate the feast at the 7:30 and 10 a.m. services on Sunday.

All Saints’ Day is an especially appropriate day for the administration of Holy Baptism. This year, three new Christians will be baptized on All Saints’ Sunday. All are welcome to attend.

All Souls’ Day is the church’s commemoration of all who have died – those who died in the communion of the church, and those whose faith is known to God alone.

St. Peter’s will keep this feast by offering the Holy Eucharist of All Souls’ Day at 6 p.m. today. Those who mourn the loss of someone recent or someone who has been gone many years, are especially invited to be present for this celebration. A potluck supper will follow the Eucharist in Waterman Hall.

St. Peter’s welcomes all people to worship, and all baptized persons are invited to receive Holy Communion. For those looking for more meaning and deepened spirituality, the Episcopal Church offers honest and unconditional acceptance, which removes barriers to Jesus Christ and permits belonging to an authentic church community.

Saint Peter’s is located at 218 Somonauk St. in Sycamore. The church is accessible to the disabled. For more information, call the church office at 815-895-2227 or visit www.sycamorestpeters.org.
