All Saints Community Altar and Candlelight Concert

Wednesday, November 1, 2023
Performance at 6:00PM
We invite you to bring dishes to our communal feast!

Please join us on All Saints to honor our ancestors. Bring an offering–a photograph, momento, flowers, or candle–for the altar and stay for a live recorded concert with Joe Lastie and Herlin Riley‘s Spiritual Sounds featuring Bruce Sunpie Barnes (accordion), Gregg Stafford (trumpet), Louis Ford (saxophone), Rickie Monie (piano), and Mark Brooks (bass).

After the concert, gumbo and sweet potato pie will be served. Please bring other dishes your loved ones enjoyed for our communal feast.
