All Saints' Sunday
Church of the Redeemer will hold our next Family Feast Day on All Saints' Sunday, November 3 at 10:00 am in the nave. We will celebrate Holy Eucharist and Baptism together as a combined 10:00 am worship service, including music from both our Sanctuary and our Banquet services.
Commemorating all saints, known and unknown, on November 1, All Saints' Day is one of the seven principal feasts of the church year, and one of the four days recommended for administration of baptism. All Saints' Day may also be celebrated on the Sunday following November 1, as we will do this year.
Also on that Sunday, we will welcome the Rev. Dr. Katherine Sonderegger of Virginia Theological Seminary as our guest preacher at the 8:00 am and 10:00 am worship services. Dr. Sonderegger will be one of the presenters at the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio's 2019 Jubilate Conference. For more information on Jubilate: A Conversation About Prayer Book Revision and our Language of Prayer to be held on November 2, visit the diocesan website.
