    Words to live by:
    “What we have once enjoyed deeply we can never lose.
    All that we love deeply becomes part of us.”

    ~Helen Keller


    October 13 – Blessing of the Animals –

    One Service: 10:00 a.m., multigenerational service

    Worship Leaders: Reverend Caitlin O’Brien, Reverend David Horst and Perry Montrose

    On this day, all furry, feathery, finny, scaly, and slithery pets, and their human companions will be welcomed to a Blessing of the Animals. Dogs must be securely leashed or harnessed. Smaller animals should be carried in kennels or cages or held securely. Bring pictures of beloved deceased pets for the remembrance table.


    October 20 “Tying the String: Atonement and Reconnection”

    Two Services: 9:30 and 11:15 a.m.

    Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno
    Preacher: Ann Kadlecek, Ministerial Intern

    We all do things we’re not proud of, things that cut us off from our truest selves, one another, and what is most holy. It’s part of being human and it’s a problem for people who seek to build beloved community. How do we, as individuals or as societies, come back together when we mess up badly? What might atonement look like for us today?

    Mission Offering: To support All Souls’ operating budget (See page 8 of our newsletter for details)

    NL Food Pantry Offering: canned tuna

    Town Hall Meeting between services



    October 27 – “Love is as Strong as Death”

    Two Services: 9:30 and 11:15 a.m., Annual Ritual of Remembrance

    Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno

    When a loved one dies, our relationship with the dearly departed does not end. We continue to be inspired by and learn from those we have loved and lost. This truth brings both comfort and sorrow. We’ll explore the former while.
