“Shine as lights in the world!” Another amazing Light Party here at St Oswald’s to celebrate All Hallows’ Eve! Thanks to Bev and the whole team who helped to make this such a fun event for all 46 children, the youngest of whom was just two weeks old! “Many hands make light work!”

The Eve of All Hallows 2015

In the Christian calendar, 1 November is the feast of All Saints. An old name for the festival is All Hallows. Just as the day before Christmas Day is called Christmas Eve, so the day before All Saints Day used to be known as Hallows Eve, or Halloween.
Although All Saints’ Day is a particularly Christian Festival, Halloween has become associated with particularly non-Christian celebrations of witches and the like.
This year we have organised activities to teach our young people the reasons to celebrate the Saints. We will be holding a “Light Parties” for children up to age 11.
We will celebrate “The Light of Christ” and “The Saints in Light”.
No Tricks, Just Treats!
Entry will be by Ticket Only – obtainable in advance at Praise & Play or RICH group meetings.
