Day of Reflection: All Saints and All Souls – The Victory and the Mercy of God
November 2 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$65
Join us for a day of reflection that honors remembrance. All Saints’ Day is frequently focused on the special women and men called into God’s holy kingdom: the saints. All Souls’ Day is focused on the rest of us, for whom we seek God’s pardon and forgiveness. These two feasts belong together, for one celebrates the triumph of God in the human soul, and the other the endless mercy that God offers. Reflect on the meaning of these first two days in November, for both honor the gift God offers to each of us — here in this life and in the life to come.
Check-in begins at 8:45am. Program begins in the Chapel promptly at 9am. Lunch will be served in the dining room mid-day. Conclude with Mass at 2:30 pm.
