Canterbury Downtown

Celebrate the Saints with Canterbury Downtown

With All Hallow’s Eve comes… All Saints!

How will you choose your Halloween costume?  Do you create one from your imagination, use what’s in your closet to scrape by, buy or rent the most outrageous think you can get your hands on?  What about commemorating a Saint?


Halloween exists as a result of preparing for All Saints day on ‘All Hallows Eve’, or Hallowe’en.  On November 1st the Church celebrates the Communion of Saints, those church fathers and mothers remembered by the church for their examples and faithful ministry during their time here on earth.

On November 2nd, the Feast of All Souls, we remember and commemorate all the faithful departed, our loved ones who have died, and those known to God alone, who entered into the larger life, joining the Communion of Saints.

All Saints Celebrations

Canterbury Downtown will remember the Saints of the Church and the saints in our lives when we gather for Night Prayers on Wednesday, October 30th, 9 p.m. the Catholic Center Chapel (238 Thompson) Join us for this evening of prayer, song, silence, candle-lighting and remembrance.  If you can’t join us, please send Mary Cat an email with the names of loved ones you would like us to pray for.

On Sunday, November 3, All Saints will be celebrated at our 6 p.m. Holy Eucharist at Grace Church.  If you would like to have the names of loved ones who have died in the last year added to the prayer list, please send them to Mary Cat.
