All Saints Day, also known as All Hallows’ Day, or Hallowmas, is a Christian celebration in honour of all the saints from Christian history. In Western Christianity, it is observed on November 1st by the Roman Catholic Church, the Anglican Church, the Methodist Church, the Lutheran Church, and other Protestant denominations.

In fact, it’s a day when we also remember those who have passed on, light a candle for them, and celebrate Holy Communion. With many Churches closed due to coronavirus, the opportunity to celebrate All Saints is a bit of a challenge. All Saints Church Lagoa will be open, as normal, this Sunday at the convent in Lagoa, and if you live in the Lagoa council (remember we are in four days lockdown) come and join us. If you would like to light a candle to remember someone special to you, or to take Holy Communion, know that there is a welcome waiting for you. The service starts at 11am and everyone is welcome, whatever your Christian background. PL
