Blest are they that dwell within Thy house. They praise Thy name evermore. Psalm 84:4
On Sunday, November 3, Pilgrim will remember members and friends of the congregation who died in the past year.
The Concert Choir from the College of St. Scholastica will join the Pilgrim Choir in singing Requiem by Eliza Gilkyson and How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place by Johannes Brahms. The service will include poems and prayers of remembrance as well as the Sacrament of Holy Communion which celebrates our continued connection with those who have departed this life. The choirs sing under the direction of Dr. Bret Amundson and are accompanied by Pilgrim’s Director of Music, Rachael Kresha.
Candles will be lighted in memory of the following members and friends of Pilgrim:
Mary Jane Owens
Billie Marie Johnson
and others whom we each hold dear in our hearts.
Worship begins at 10:00 a.m. Children worship with adults for the opening portion of the service and then go to Sunday school classes. There are classes for children ages 4-1st grade, 2nd-3rd grade and 4th-7th grade.

Pilgrim goes all out to host one of Duluth’s best Halloween parties for the younger crowd. Come visit Diagon Alley, the Joke Shop, and eat at Three Broomsticks Tavern. Find your way to the Platform 9 and 3/4 and take a carriage ride. Travel upstairs to visit owls from the Lake Superior Zoo. This party is for all Harry Potter fans of any age.
We couldn’t do it without a lot of help from Duluth business and volunteers from all sectors of the community. So check out our sponsor board. And if you’d like to bring a donation for Kids Closet, we’ll deliver your gifts to them. But mostly, just come for some good Halloween fun.
Enjoy a bit of pumpkin carving on Saturday morning, 9-noon–then pick up your pumpkin at the end of the party Sunday evening.
And if Halloween trick or treating isn’t quite your preference on October 31, come to Pilgrim at 7:30 for a Spooktacular Organ Recital. Rachael Kresha will be playing “spooky” music from some of the world’s most beloved classical composers.
