Special All Souls’ Day Service

It is All Souls’ Day on Wednesday 2 November, a day to particularly remember the people we loved who have died.

The Very Rev Chris Armstrong is holding a special service for all our parishes, in St Peter’s Church in Barrowden at 7.30 pm on 2 November. All are welcome from Morcott, no matter whether your loss is recent or long past.

Candles will be distributed and lit during the service for you to either take home, or place on the grave of your loved ones.

There is a form in Morcott Church on which you can write the name of your loved ones to be remembered, together with their date of death. This will allow us to remember them annually around the date of their departure.

Questions? Contact the Churchwardens – Eric (747 175) or Jane (747 157).
