All Souls Book of Remembrance
Each year, just as the harvest is finished in much of the world, Christians keep their own harvest feast – God’s harvest, the harvest of the Saints – on the first day of November. We begin this day on the holy vigil of All Saints, Halloween. We continue the harvest feast, on the day to remember the dead – November 2, All Souls – and on through the month of November. We pause to remember so that we won’t forget. Here at Holy Angels, we will have a Book of Remembrance in the Main Lobby of the school in which we will invite everyone in our community and visitors to our school to inscribe the names of deceased loved ones to be remembered in prayer. This year we will also have a digital picture frame displaying pictures of deceased loved ones. We invite those in our community to submit pictures (jpeg format, please) of their loved ones to or to have them included.
