Adoration on All Hallows’ Eve

by daniel couper

Brothers and Sisters,

We will gather as usual at 8:00pm in the chapel at Munsey on Tuesday for Adoration. This being the evening before All Saints’ Day (also known as All Hallows’ Day), we will celebrate the traditional vigil service in honor of those saints who have gone before us to show us the way of Christ. Fellowship and refreshments will follow the service. See the post script for a more detailed explanation of the service.

P.S. Since All Hallows Eve falls on a Tuesday this year, we will celebrate the Solemnity of All Saints at our usual gathering time. As this is the first time this has happened in the 12-year history of Adoration, we can only imagine how this will all play out.

Historically, the Jewish Sabbath began at sunset, the ancient Hebrews’ beginning of the day. The early Christians retained this custom of lengthy vigils late in the evening or during the night before a solemnity (e.g., the Great Vigil of Easter or Midnight Mass at Christmas). In liturgical celebrations throughout the year, liturgical Feast days—including Sundays—follow these ancient patterns of beginning after sundown on the previous calendar day. We invite you to incorporate the original source of Halloween—the liturgical vigil of All Saints— as part of your other plans this week.

Adoration : Fall 2017

by daniel couper

Sisters and brothers,

The school year is getting rolling once again, and many of us are itching to gather together again. As you’re probably aware, Hopwood is currently under construction (in order to add some room and make it more handicap-accessible), and will continue to be so for much of the coming semester. As a result, we’ll be meeting at Munsey UMC in Johnson City each Tuesday night at 8:00 until the winter break. The kind folks there have graciously opened their beautiful chapel for our gatherings. As for a start date, mark your calendars for September 12 (two weeks from now).

Till then, grace and peace to all!
