All Saints Sunday is November 6. We will have three baptisms and we will
remember the Beloved Departed. A list will be posted on the bulletin board for names of those who have died in the last year. All names will be read from the altar.
All Saints Sunday is also the end of Daylight Savings Time. Remember to “fall back”!
