The Halloween party at St. Luke Church was not exactly a traditional party. While kids were dressed in traditional Halloween costumes, the true meaning of All Hallows Eve was recaptured in song and prayer. A procession was led to St. Luke's "cemetery" where prayers were offered for our deceased families, friends, clergy and the forgotten dead who make up the Communion of Saints. A deceased person spoke from the dark encouraging us to live Christian lives with the hope of everlasting life. On Saturday and Sunday Father Neff preached on the Communion of Saints, All Saints Day and All Souls Day as special times to remember and pray for the dead as they pray for us here on earth.
