Vestments for the Mass include a pumpkin mask for Fr Arthur.
The Service begins with the Paul Inwood hymn Trick or Treat Ch-Ch? (loosely based on the Gregorian chant Fallere aut Remunerare?) After this, prayers will be offered to St Jack O' Lantern, an Irish Saint who was often "Lit up."
St Jack O' Lantern, pray for us.
The readings for the day are expected to include the passage from 1 Samuel 28, where King Saul is turned into a frog by the Witch of Endor. The text on which Fr Arthur preaches tonight is Revelation 21, where it is claimed that sorcerers will end up in a pool burning with fire and brimstone; he will explain that this is purely a metaphor for people scowling at them ("Hate Crime") as they practice their sincerely-held beliefs.
We welcome witches. Note the modernist broomsticks!
After the service, there will be "eye of newt and toe of frog" soup and bread rolls available in the Church Hall. Do come along!
