All Saints' Day

November 1, 2020 

This year, St. Andrew celebrated All Saints' Day with an early evening service.
 
While waiting for the sun to set, luminaria bags and rocks were decorated to honor those who have passed.

The luminarias were placed along the path in our olive garden.


As the darkness spread, the candles were placed in the luminarias and they began to glow.

Pastor Brian read  a list of names of those who have gone before us and we all responded "Present" as 
a bell was rung for each person.

 
Then, the rocks that we had decorated were placed in the center of the garden and each name was spoken again as we prayed for our never forgotten souls.
