This Celebration is intended as a way of engaging a wide range of participants in the observance of All Saints’ Day or All Saints’ Sunday. There are roles for clergy, acolytes, readers, choir and children. The script replaces the Liturgy of the Word, but includes the Epistle and Gospel for the day, and leaves space for a sermon. The saints commemorated are drawn from Holy Women, Holy Men (New York: Church Publishing, 2010), and have an exclusively American focus. The format could be easily adapted to accommodate (for example) Bible saints (Mary, Peter, Paul, John, etc.) or patronal saints (Andrew, Patrick, David etc.). In addition to the five American saints described (the ‘scenes’ of the liturgy in place of one of the readings or the sermon) a Litany is offered for the Prayers of the People. Several hymns included from Episcopal hymnals and songbooks. .
The cast includes 8+ persons including choir and accompanist. This presentation is intended for use by all ages and is about 45 minutes in length. The purchase price includes full rights to reproduce material for everyone involved in the presentation.
