Hallowtide & All Saints: A Season of Remembrance - Dinner & Concert

Marble Church
Wednesday, October 30, 2019
5:45 pm – 9:00 pm

“Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4

The Marble Women’s and Music Ministries invite you to an annual All-Church Hallowtide/All Saints evening when we remember and honor loved ones who are now joined with God. We recall those souls who have guided us toward a deeper faith and shown us how to be true servants in that faith.

Through the inspiration of music, the power of a thoughtful word, and the comfort of telling our stories, we seek to honor these “Saints” in our lives.

Over dinner in the Loft at 5:45pm, we will share stories of those Saints. Following dinner, an All Saints' concert of glorious music, Life after Life: Remembering Our Saints at 7:30pm, will be presented in the Sanctuary by the Marble Choir under the direction of Kenneth Dake.

You are invited to submit a digital or hard-copy photo of one person (limit to two photos, please) who has passed on but served as a significant Saint in your life – during the concert those images will be projected on a screen in the Sanctuary. Send photos to Music Department Manager Jen Clover no later than Friday, October 25.

Dinner at 5:45pm
Concert at 7:30pm

Altar of Remembrance
Returning this year is the Altar of Remembrance in the Chapel to place photos, art, and symbolic tokens in memory of those dear to you who have passed on from this world. They will appear on the Altar from October 27 through November 10. Memorial cards will be available to write names of loved ones you wish to honor who have no photo.

Leave photos at the Reception Desk in the 1 W. 29th Street lobby to the attention of Don Piper. To have your photo returned, write your name and address, clearly, on the back. Photos will be available at Marble Reception for pickup beginning Tuesday, November5. (Photocopies are recommended if the photo is especially valuable or sentimental.)

**A Labyrinth Walk is available, 4:30-5:30pm**

5:45pm Dinner & 7:30pm Concert: $25
7:30pm Concert only: $15 in advance / $20 at the door; Seniors, $15
