All Saints Day
"That great cloud of witnesses beyond all time and space" are honored every year on All Saints' Day. Throughout the life of the church martyrs and non-martyrs have been remembered on special days. Early in our church history, these days were often closely connected to Easter; but, in 835CE they were combined into one common day and put on November 1st. Covenant will celebrate All Saints' Day on Sunday, November 1st at both worship services by celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Communion and sharing in the sacred reading of the names of our loved ones that have entered into their eternal joy this year. Those who we have commemorated with a white rose since last year's All Saints' Sunday will be included in the list; but you are encouraged to advise the church office of other loved ones from the past year you'd like included. Please let us know by Wednesday, October 28th at the church office (608) 233-6297 or e-mail us.
Covenant & Westminster Choirs To Sing Howard Goodall's,
"Eternal Light: A Requiem"
On Sunday, November 1st, at 3:00pm, Westminster Presbyterian Church will host a special choral "Service of Remembrance" featuring English composer Howard Goodall's, "Eternal Light: A Requiem." This work, which was completed and first presented in Summer 2008, weaves together beautiful melodies and masterful choral writing into a meaningful message for anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one.
The choirs of Westminster and Covenant will join together in this choral offering that was chosen to amplify Westminster's centennial theme about the great "cloud of witnesses" that has gone on before us. The combined choirs and soloists will be accompanied by organ, piano, harp, and violin in this special service of remembrance.
Please reach out and invite your family, friends, and neighbors to share in this ministry to the greater Madison community by joining us for this special All Saint's Sunday experience.
