For All the Saints

  • St. Paul's United Methodist Church 5501 Main Street Houston, TX, 77004 United States (map)

The names of the St. Paul’s Family members who have died since All Saints Sunday 2014 will be read during morning worship on November 1. 

The St. Paul’s Choir and Treble Choir will sing an All Saints service at 4 p.m. in the Sanctuary. The service will feature Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem in its original version with chamber orchestra of strings, horns, harp, and organ, under the direction of Dr. Paolo Bordignon.

“Churches around the world dedicate November 1 to the honor and memory of All Saints (or ‘All Hallows’) on earth and in heaven,” explained Bordignon. “At St. Paul’s, an annual Choral All Saints Evensong has become one of the most cherished services of our liturgical year.  

“We come together that day to celebrate the work of Christ in the world (that which makes us ‘saints’) and to honor the memory of our recently departed.” 

The Fe y Esperanza congregation will erect El Día de los Muertos ofrendas on the Plaza from 4 to 7 p.m. as another way for all to remember our deceased loved ones and to pray for them. 

A lighted Labyrinth walk will follow the service.
