All Saints Litany

Here’s a responsive litany for All Saints Day (November 1, or the Sunday closest). It was written by Rev. Susannah DeBenedetto, and posted on LiturgyLink.

Litany for All Saints

We remember…
…teachers and storytellers
who made God’s stories come alive for us and
We give thanks!

We remember…
…choir members, praise bands, organists,
and all the musicians who sang and played your praises and
We give thanks!

We remember…
…preachers and lay leaders
who led our worship through the years and
We give thanks!

We remember…
…parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins,
sisters, and brothers who sat with us on Sundays
and lived out their faith all week long and
We give thanks!

We remember…
…our church families – this one and others we have loved.
We remember all those who have been a part of this faith family and
We give thanks!

We remember…
…our ancestors in the faith
whose courage enables us to be here today.
For our sisters and brothers in the faith
whose names are remember only by God
We give thanks!
