Church of Peace will celebrate the Feast of All Saints on Sunday, November 3.  According to Church of Peace tradition the Feast of All Saints will be combined with Totenfest.  Totenfest is a tradition created by the German Evangelical Churches.  It refers to the liturgical remembrance of those who have died the previous year.  Originally Totenfest was most often celebrated on the last Sunday of the year.  But in recent times Totenfest has come to be associated with the Feast of All Saints at the beginning of November.

At Church of Peace we remember the deceased by calling each name and tolling the bell in the steeple for them.  We also display pictures of our deceased loved ones during the service.
