The Rector’s Reflection for November 2015

Sunday, November 1, 2015
All Saints' Day

All Saints' Day

At Saint Thomas, we celebrate All Saints' Day on November 1 and then the Solemnity of All Saints on the Sunday after All Saints' Day.

Almighty God, who hast knit together thine elect in one communion and fellowship in the mystical body of thy Son Christ our Lord: Give us grace so to follow thy blessed saints in all virtuous and godly living, that we may come to those ineffable joys that thou hast prepared for those who unfeignedly love thee; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

Each month, Father Turner records an audio message which is a personal theological reflection on a particular topic. Sometimes it is about the season or festival being celebrated at Saint Thomas Church, sometimes a reflection on the life of the church in other parts of the world and at other times something that is in the news. These messages are posted toward the end of each month. Be sure to check latest news for updates.

The Rector’s Reflection for November 2015

November is the month of All Souls. Canon Turner reflects on the loss of many old funeral customs and the popularity of certain poems that seem to deny the reality of death.
