All Saints' Sunday: November 6, 2022

In the Episcopal tradition, All Saints' Day, November 1, is one of the seven principal feasts of the church year. It is a day of the celebration of saints who have departed from us, as well as a day where we administer baptisms.

All Saints' Day may also be celebrated on the Sunday following November 1. This year, we will recognize our faithful departed and offer the sacrament of baptism on Sunday, November 6, 2022.

This year, on Sunday, November 6, St. James' will be celebrating All Saints' Sunday by recognizing our faithful departed and offering the sacrament of baptism. 

If you are interested in receiving the sacrament of baptism, please contact the church office at (703)777-1124 or email us.

As part of our celebration on All Saints' Sunday, we will pause to remember the saints whose earthly lives have ended, but whose legacies will live on. All names that were submitted have been printed below:

O God, we give you thanks and praise for the saints of our lives whose names are listed, and for those not listed by written on our hearts. Their legacies are woven into the fabric of who we are and who we are to become. Having completed their earthly life, may they be at peace, and may we be inspired by their example, living fully in your love and grace. May we learn from their successes and their failures, ever mindful that our lives have been richly blessed by having known and loved them. We offer this prayer in honor of their memory and in the name of your Son, Our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
