Reformation Sunday

Reformation Sunday

Sunday, October 29, 2017, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Reformation Day is a Protestant religious holiday celebrated on October 31, alongside All Hallows' Eve (Halloween) in remembrance of the onset of the Reformation.

Traditionally, October 31, 1517 is widely held to be the day German monk Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses on the door of the All Saints' Church in Wittenberg, within the Holy Roman Empire. Reliable evidence unambiguously confirming this event is not known of. Luther may have chosen All Hallows' Eve on purpose to get the attention of common people. Nowadays, it is regarded as the start of the Reformation alongside the unconfirmed nailing of the Ninety-five Theses to All Saints' Church's door on the same date.

Epiphany will hold its Reformation Worship Service at St. James Episcopal on Sunday Morning (Reformation Sunday). The Episcopal Choir will sing and Epiphany’s bell choir will join in this festivity. If you have a voice and wish to sing with the Episcopal Choir please let Jill Millett know you’re in!
