Coming Up at Saint Mark's

All Saints’ Day, Wednesday, November 1
This is one of the principal feasts of the church year, and we keep it with a Solemn High Mass at 7 p.m., in addition to the regular daily masses said that day. Please plan to come and give thanks to God for the witness and ministry of all the saints, known and unknown. Stay afterward for a pot luck supper, to which we ask that you bring a salad, side dish, or dessert to share.

Commemoration of All Faithful Departed, Thursday, November 2
On this somber night we remember all the faithful departed, and we pause to listen to the recitation of the names of our founders, benefactors, and those beloved of the congregation, whom you’ve asked us to remember. The liturgy is beautiful, ancient, and mostly sung. The Parish Choir will sing a setting of the Requiem Mass by Alfred Desenclos. The clergy are vested in traditional black vestments, and the Mass concludes with the absolution of the catafalque, a kind of stand-in for the countless souls we remember on this night. Soon you will receive a letter asking you to submit those names with your memorial contributions to the Parish Office, though you can send names and contributions to the Verger, Daniel Russell, drussell@saintmarksphiladelphia.org by noon on October 30.

Choral Evensong and Benediction, November 5, 4 p.m.
Join the Parish Choir and the Choir of Boys & Girls for this sung office. The Canticles will be the Mount St. Alban Service by David Hogan. Music by Herbert Howells, Gerre Hancock, and Martin Neary will also be sung. There will also be promotion of choristers and commissioning of Neighbor Care cluster leaders.
