St. Martin-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church
The Christian celebration of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day stems from a belief that there is a powerful spiritual bond between those in heaven (the "Church triumphant"), and the living (the "Church militant"). In Catholic theology, the day commemorates all those who have attained the beatific vision in Heaven. In Methodist theology, All Saints Day revolves around "giving God solemn thanks for the lives and deaths of his saints", including those who are "famous or obscure"
St. Martin's celebrated All Saints Sunday by Baptizing 9 children.
The tradition is to hold baptisms on the closest Sunday to All Saints Day which was Sunday, November 3.
