Remembrance Day

Please join us at the 10:00 am service for our time of remembrance and commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.

At 4:30 we will gather again to participate in the Bells of Peace, an initiative of the Royal Canadian Legion, where “at the going down of the sun, communities across Canada will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War with the ringing of 100 bells. The ringing of bells emulates the moment in 1918 when church bells across Europe tolled as four years of war had come to an end.” We will conclude with our Sunday evening service of Compline, immediately following the Bells of Peace ceremony.

All Hallows’ Eve

Though Satan breaks our dark glass into shards

Each shard still shines with Christ’s reflected light,

It glances from the eyes, kindles the words

Of all his unknown saints. The dark is bright

With quiet lives and steady lights undimmed,

The witness of the ones we shunned and shamed.

Plain in our sight and far beyond our seeing

He weaves them with us in the web of being

They stand beside us even as we grieve,

The lone and left behind whom no one claimed,

Unnumbered multitudes, he lifts above

The shadow of the gibbet and the grave,

To triumph where all saints are known and named;

The gathered glories of His wounded love.
