Join us at Sts. Joachim and Ann in Aldergrove on Monday, October 31, for an All Hallows’ Eve costume party! Come dressed as your favourite saint. Adults are welcome to dress up too. The evening will begin with Solemn Vespers of All Saints at 5 p.m., followed by the party, which will feature the ever-popular “trunk or treat” (outdoors, weather permitting). Please bring a bag of candy to distribute from your “trunk” so the kids have a chance to show off their costumes by walking from “trunk to trunk” pleading for treats. There will be goodies and pizza indoors (please bring $2 per person for pizza if you would like to partake, maximum of $10 per family), games for the kids, and a prize for best costume (to be judged by one of the priests).
There will be Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament during the evening. Adults and older children, please sign up for 20-minute intervals of Adoration. A sign-up sheet is posted. The evening will conclude with Benediction at 7:30 p.m. To give us an idea of how much pizza to bring, please sign up on the sign-up sheet for the party or email Sarah Bjorgaard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
