Shower of Saints

During Stewardship Season at Mount Auburn Presbyterian Church, we celebrate All Saints Day on an exceptionally large scale. In 2006, we inaugurated "The Shower of Saints", a display in our sanctuary of more than 200 portraits and tributes to honor those whom we personally identify as "saints" – global, national, and local individuals who have either died within the last year, or who have been chosen for the impact that their earthly presence had on the lives of MAPC members and those around the world. We also take time to remember those in our faith family who are no longer bodily with us, but whose spirits endure. By memorializing these beloved saints, we bear witness to God's diverse blessings of humanity that influence the lives of others.
