Family Prayer for All Saints’ Day

Author: Nicholle Check ~ October 24, 2017


The Solemnity of All Saints (All Saints’ Day) on Wednesday, November 1, is a holy day of obligation. While families will attend Mass together, they may also choose to remember the beloved dead in their family with a prayer service at home. Children of all ages can understand that saints are God’s special friends in Heaven. The Litany of the Saints Prayer Service lets children remember those people they know who have died, whether a family member or a special person in your parish community. And the Remembering the Dead resource page will help parents explain the difference between All Saints’ Day (November 1) and All Souls’ (November 2).
