All Saints’ Sunday with Dedication of Vestments • November 5, 2017

The Compline Choir dedicated new vestments at the beginning of the All Saints’ Sunday Compline service. Purchase of vestments were made possibly by a $10,000 gift in memory of Peter Rasmussen Hallock (1924-2014), given by his sister Matilda Ann Hallock Milbank (1917-2015). Cassocks and surplices were custom-made by the English firm Watts & Co., London, and amices were procured from the American firm Gaspard, Inc., Brookfield, Wisconsin. As is our custom on All Saints’ Sunday, the names of deceased Compline Choir members was read aloud and a bell tolled for each at the beginning of the office.
