The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod
Over the centuries, the Christian Church has set aside specific days to remember persons and events that were significant in the proclamation of the Gospel.
The following feasts and festivals are according to the Lutheran Service Book calendar, and the LCMS Worship Library explains the distinction between “festivals” and “commemorations.”
Readings and other propers have been assigned for the feasts and festivals, and each day features an introit, collect, gradual, verse and hymn suggestions. These may be found in the LSB Altar Book and the Hymn Selection Guide.
The hymn “By All Your Saints in Warfare” provides us with another opportunity to learn about those who have gone before us and pointed to Christ. A selection of those hymn verses and prayers for the day are available.
The Lutheran Service Book includes these occasions:
