|2 November is All Souls Day when we pray for departed souls.|
|This season - Halloween, All Saints Day and All Souls Day - has deep roots. The 1st November is All Saints Day. There is a historical connection to a Celtic celebration at this time which celebrated the end of the (Northern hemisphere) harvest season.|
|Halloween is a contraction of "All Hallow's Eve" or "All Saints Eve". The tradition is that on Halloween spirits and related entities roam free between sunset and midnight, at which time the Saints reestablish spiritual order in the world. But if you see any "related entities" arund tomight, the offer of a few sweets will lead to a happy conclusion.|
|We have been working with Mark Virtue of Harmonysite to create a new website for St Michael and All Angels. I'm no expert and so I've enjoyed being guided by Mark. We have tried to produce a site that will look good and meet the needs of a church like ours. |
