Celebrating All Saints πŸ˜‡

01 Nov

On Tuesday, November 1,  some of our teens and kids celebrated in our chapel this holy day of remembering the Saints. Here in Haiti, it takes on a different meaning for us since those who deal with voodoo also see November as a month to do various rituals and to conduct parades. We gathered around a heart of lights, remembering the saints who lived their lives dedicated to Christ and following His Word in being mercy to all. All of us are signed with the cross at baptism and called to be saints, too. It is such a special day here in Haiti that all schools and businesses are closed on All Saints Day and All Souls Day.



God, our Father, source of all holiness,

the work of your hands is manifest in your Saints,

the beauty of your truth is reflected in their faith.

May we who aspire to have part in their joy

be filled with the Spirit that blessed their lives.

May we also know their peace in your Kingdom. Amen.
β€”Prayer for the Solemnity of All Saints, from the Roman Sacramentary
