Saints and Angels
Why do Christians celebrate Saints and Angels?
All Saints' Day, also known as All Hallows' Day, Hallowmas, Feast of All Saints, or Solemnity of All Saints, is a Christian festival celebrated in honour of all the saints, known and unknown. In Western Christianity, it is celebrated on 1 November. Hallow e’en is the evening before All Saints Day and is thus like Christmas Eve when christians celebrate the birth of Christ.
Halloween, as it is now customarily called, is the time in the church calendar where we think and celebrate the lives all those who have served and witnessed to the life of Christ.
Saints and Angels is a great out reach programme by St James for the many children of Thames. "Saints and Angels" is a time for children to come and enjoy plenty of good fun and games, with plenty of good food to follow, and help us all celebrate the lives of all those saints and angels who have gone before.
