Second Annual Spooky Saints Spectacular!
This year on the evening of October 30th, All Saints will celebrate its second annual Spooky Saints Spectacular. For this event, families or small groups from the parish will create stations associated with “spooky” saints from across the history of Christianity, putting objects and images on display that celebrate the history of the Church while getting everyone into the Halloween spirit! We will also be erecting an altar of remembrance for this event, upon which people can place pictures or mementos of loved ones who have passed away.
All Saints’ middle schoolers are taking the lead on organizing this event, and they will take care of procuring decorations for the nave and candy for the stations. BUT…we still need people to adopt saints for this spectacular event! It’s a ton of fun, a great venue for meeting new people around ASP (and inviting friends and neighbors to visit!), and an invitation to think in new ways about the people who embody the Church.
On the day of the Spectacular, we will begin setting up the stations at 3.30 and letting folks in around 5. Sign up to sponsor a saint HERE. If you are considering sponsoring a saint and have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Phil Haberkern. This celebration got off to a great start last year, and we are hoping to make it a regular component of our yearly programming for kids and families. We’ll hope to hear from many of you in the coming weeks, and to see you all at the Spooky Saints Spectacular!
