The Book of the Names of the Dead
At the 9:30 service on All Saints Sunday, November 5, we will read the Necrology, a listing of those we love who have died. It is fitting to do this on the day we celebrate the communion of saints, the mystical connection between the living and the dead. We invite you to place the names of those you would like remembered in the Book of the Names of the Dead, located in the All Saints Columbarium Chapel.

Fall Book Club Meeting October 24th
The St David's Book Club will meet on Tuesday, October 24th at 6:00 PM in the Community Room to discuss: The Round House. This National Book Award winner is authored by Minnesota's own Louise Erdrich. This is a fictional story told from the point of view of a teenage boy living on a reservation in North Dakota. There is a mystery wrapped in this novel backed by the multilayered community of relatives and friends. This is a compelling read that will make you cringe and laugh. The Book Club is for all parishioners and friends. No sign up. Just show up. Please direct any questions to Carol Stender at email@example.com.

You are invited to help us celebrate our Blessings and Bounty at the Outreach Gala on Saturday, November 11th. This is our major fundraising event of the year. The evening begins with appetizers and sparkling beverages in the narthex. The sanctuary will be turned into a gallery for bidding on our Silent Auction items of baskets of wine, hand-crafted items, services and elegant dinners.
The undercroft will undergo a transformation into an Italian street fair with the glow of candles and the aromas of the meal we will share. After a wonderful Italian themed dinner, the fun will continue as we work to outbid one another during the Live Auction hosted by our lively auctioneer, Dean Sather. The evening is capped off with anticipation and excitement as the four winning raffle tickets are drawn and announced. Four prizes will be awarded: $500, $250, $200 Cub gift card, and $100 Macy’s gift card. We’ll end the evening returning to our homes after celebrating the abundance of St. David’s and the outreach programs that benefit including: Reach & Restore, Loaves & Fishes, Families Moving Forward, and ICA Food Shelf.
Please join us on November 11th at this year’s Outreach Gala.
