Hungering for Home, Hungering for Heaven

 
Today we had a beautiful Liturgy at Res.  We celebrated the Feast of All Saints and anticipated All Souls' Day.  Our celebrant, Father Tim Anastos, reminded us that just like the Saints we should all carry within our hearts a hunger for Heaven.  Why?  Because Heaven is our ultimate home where we will dwell in glory with God.

At the end of Mass we had our traditional procession of remembrances for those who have died among our faculty, families, friends, alumnae, and Sisters of the Resurrection. 

Thank you to the students who created a beautiful "Ofrenda" to remind us to carry and honor the memory of our deceased family and friends.

We ended the event as we traditionally do, with the presentation of scholarships, many of which were presented by the donors.

Thank you to our wonderful Anastasias who worked hard on decorating the Altar and preparing the space for worship.  Thank you to our Communion Ministers, Servers, Readers, Choir and Chamber Musicians!  You did an outstanding job and helped us all lift our hearts and voices in gratitude and hunger to the God who loves us.  HAPPY ALL SAINTS DAY!
