All Saints Day


Date:  Sunday, October 22, 2017

Time:  10:45 a.m.

Place:  Harris United Methodist Church, 20 S. Vineyard Boulevard, Honolulu


Harris ohana and friends are invited to participate in our All Saints Day service on Sunday, October 22, 2017, at 10:45 a.m.  This is an especially touching time when we remember those in our lives who have gone ahead of us.  The front pews in the sanctuary will be reserved for families of our recently lost saints.  We are grateful for the many Harris volunteers who make this worship experience memorable.  Following  the lead of our 2017 Cal-Pac conference, this year we will be honoring the saints during our worship service in a new way.  During the service you will be invited to write the name of your saint on a rectangular piece of brightly colored paper and, if you wish, compose a prayer for them on the back side.  (This will take the place of the lighted candles.)  Ushers will then invite you to come forward to attach your remembrance to a board in the front of the sanctuary.  You will be given a rose to put in the vase and then return to your seat for additional meditative time.  We have extended the deadline to turn in your photos of your loved ones.  Please email your photos to admin@harrisumc.org or turn it in to the church office on October 15.
