Rector's October 2014 Letter

Chris has written a longer article this month, so I will just add in an advance notice for something happening at the very beginning of next month, the first Sunday of November.  Although that Sunday is usually celebrated as All Saints, celebrating the lives of all the well know Saints down the years, this year it actually falls on the date of the lesser known festival of All Souls.  That is the day when we are encouraged to remember our own private ‘saints’; the loved ones who have gone before us and who are now with God.

Accordingly, we will be holding a special All Souls service that morning, Sunday November 2nd, at 9:30am at Woodbury Salterton Church.  This will not be a Communion service and will be open to anyone from any of the villages or elsewhere who would like to remember those who have died.  You may have lost someone recently or in the more distant past, or just want to thank God generally for those who have guided you along life’s path.  You are welcome if you wish to add names to a list to be remembered during the service, and there will be an opportunity to light a candle in memory.

This is the first time we have held a service like this, and last year I received a number of enquiries after my magazine article, so I hope that this will meet a need.
