As the weather grows cooler the leaves change colors and begin to fall. It is only natural that, at this time of year, our thoughts turn to those whom we have loved who are no longer with us. How appropriate it is, then, that the church offers us the special focus of All Saints Day and All Souls Day in November - the Month of the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
With our beloved dead in mind, the Band of Sisters will gather on Monday, 28 October to pray for our departed. In addition, we will take a guided tour of this historic cemetery - which will have a special focus on the history of the women buried there.
For 150 years, Historic Oakwood Cemetery in Raleigh has told the stories of generations: families who formed our city, soldiers who honored our country, and people of today who chose to rest among the historic oaks.
You are invited to join us. Please register so we can let our guide know who to expect. Suggested donation is $10.
