A collection of prayers for the principal feasts and festivals. "Praying with the Calendar of Saints" is a collection of intercessions to accompany the Church of England Common Worship Calendar of Saints and Holy Days. There are prayers for each principal feast and festival, with sets to cover each of the 'headings' for the lesser festivals and commemorations. The collection is a natural companion to "Exciting Holiness", the compendium of readings to accompany the calendar.
