We will be observing the 500th anniversary of the founding of the Protestant Reformation a couple of weeks early. On October 31, 1517 Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of All Saints Church at Wittenberg Castle. He posted them in Latin, but they were soon translated to the common German language of the day, and with the help of the Guttenberg Press the Protestant Reformation was born! Martin Luther was a fine hymnist and we will feature his hymns during the Mass.
We are blessed to have The Rev. Todd Dittloff (Lutheran, ret.) join us on this occasion. In place of Adult Bible Study, Pastor Dittloff will be sharing his insight into Martin Luther and the many long-lasting effects he has had on Protestantism. I believe you will be surprised at some of the contributions Luther made that we aren’t as aware. He will also give the homily in our morning worship service.
After services, we will have a potluck luncheon, and some uplifting fellowship in the Parish Hall.
This should be an exciting and informative morning, and I look forward to seeing everyone attend! This will be a perfect opportunity to invite your friends.
Sunday, November 5, 2017 – FOR ALL THE SAINTS!
We will observe All Saints Day (Nov.1) with a Solemn High Mass. We will remember those in our parish who are with their Lord. After morning services, we will have a wonderful time of fellowship, food, and coffee in the Parish Hall.
