All Saints’ Day, celebrated November 1 or the nearest Sunday afterward, is characterized by the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) as a Principal Feast, “taking precedence over any other day or observance” (BCP 15). The day is set aside to remember and commend the saints of God, especially those who are not recognized at other points in the church year.

October 31, the night before All Saints’ Day, is All Hallows’ Eve, or as it is more commonly known, Halloween. Although All Saints’ Day is one of the major holy days on the church’s liturgical calendar, All Hallows’ Eve is not as widely celebrated in the church as it is in secular culture. However, for Episcopalians seeking a Halloween liturgy, “The Book of Occasional Services” (Church Pension Fund, 2004) does offer a service for All Hallows’ Eve  (pp. 108-110).

Last month, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry released a video inviting everyone to be a part of The Jesus Movement.

This year marks the 25th annual National Observance of Children’s Sabbaths celebration, a weekend set aside by the Children’s Defense Fund to lift up concerns facing America’s children. On October 21-23, 2016 faith communities across the United States will consider this year’s theme, “Children of Promise: Closing Opportunity Gaps,” as a way of responding to our sacred call to protect children – all children – regardless of income, race, zip code, or disability.
