ALL SAINTS DAY
All Saints Day is always on 1 November. It is a day to remember all the saints who have gonebefore us in faith, and to remember that, as Christian people,
we
are all saints. This year wewill observe All Saints Day on 30 October. The Intercessions on All Saints Day are traditionally
replaced with a ‘litany of the saints’. Anglicans do not pray
to
the saints, but we do ask thesaints, living and dead, to pray for and with us. In the two weeks leading up to All Saints Day,you will be invited to write the name of saint whom you would like to be named in the litany.
