All Saints' Day

On Sunday, November 6, we will celebrate All Saints' Day at
Holy Shepherd during both worship services. All Saints' Day is a
time to remember those who have died and to thank God for their
lives. We are inviting you to bring a picture of your loved one and speak
his/her name during the prayers of intercession. We will be lining the
walls surrounding our worship space with the pictures. Please arrive
a couple of minutes early to line the pictures on the walls - remember to
take your picture(s) with you after the worship service.
