Greetings from
Emmanuel Episcopal Church!

We will celebrate All Saints Day this Sunday.
We look forward to seeing you in church! 

All Saints' Day

For All Saints' Day, vestments and altar cloth are white.

All Saints' Day: The Christian Memorial Day on which all who died for their testimony of Jesus are remembered.  
Many American churches use All Saints' Day as an educational, Christian alternative to the secular Halloween, by having a party and a special service for children, who dress in costumes to represent heroes of the Christian faith. The practice of having a harvest festival to avoid the secular Halloween is ironic, since that puts us right back into the pagan things we were trying to avoid.  
The word Halloween itself is a contraction of All hallows' evening, which is the original English-language Christian term for All Saints' Eve. ('Hallow' is an old word for 'holy' and 'saint.')
