Many in our community have come to love the Cathedral’s annual celebration of Halloween which includes tales of the Stewart grave robbery and spooky tours to the Cathedral Crypt. Due to construction in the cathedral undercroft this year, tours below ground are not possible. But fear not! The Cathedral will be keeping All Hallows Eve all Sunday morning long!
As October 31st falls on a Sunday this year, all morning services on Halloween will incorporate suitably eerie music, scripture readings including the story of the Witch of Endor and other surprises for all ages.
Costumes are encouraged at the Cathedral for Kids service at 9:15am after which treats will be available for all in the Mercer School gallery.
All Hallows Eve begins a three day celebration culminating with the feasts of All Saint’s and All Soul’s. This ancient liturgical season is known as All Hallowtide. It is a time in which saints and loved ones are remembered in prayer, song and sacraments. Come celebrate the connection between life and death in the shadow of the cross and the light of the resurrection.
Services on Halloween morning are at 8am, 9:15am and 11:15am. Treats and storytelling will take place at during Fellowship in Faith at 10am in the Mercer School of Theology.
