All Saints Day
"That great cloud of witness beyond all time and space" are honored every year on All Saints' Day. Throughout the life of the church martyrs and non-martyrs have been remembered on special days. Early in our church history, these days were often closely connected to Easter; but, in 835 CE they were combined into one common day and put on November 1st. Covenant will celebrate All Saints' Day on Sunday, November 2nd at both worship services by celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Communion and sharing in the sacred reading of the names of our loved ones that have entered into their eternal joy this year. Those who we have commemorated with a white rose since last year's All Saints' Sunday will be included in the list; but you are encouraged to advise the church office of other loved ones from the past year you'd like included. Please e-mail or call us (608-233-6297) by Wednesday, October 29th.
