Tomorrow, 10/31, is the Vigil of All Saints. Please note that night prayer is included as part of the vigil.
The event will begin at 7:30pm. This year the theme is “Witness of the Martyrs” and the evening will consist of celebrating the martyrs as witnesses for Christ through readings about the saints, the Office of Compline (sung Night Prayer), a candlelight procession to the House Reliquary, and a chanted Litany of the Saints. Confessions will be available throughout the evening and a reception will follow.
Due to the popularity of this event, guests should plan to arrive early if they desire a seat. There is some parking available behind the Dominican House of Studies and the parking lot of the USCCB on 4th St, NE is available for overflow parking after 5:30pm.
