All Souls

Rev. Rachel Baker

It has been said that this is the time of year when the veil between life and death is thin. We take this time to honor and remember those who have died. Members and friends of the congregation are invited to bring photos, items that remind them of loved ones, flowers, or candles to the virtual sanctuary. We will build altars to share while physically distant.
