When New Orleans was granted an expansion team by New Orleans Saints players fighting San Francisco 49ers players shirt the NFL to become the 16th team in that league, it happened on November 1, 1966. November 1 is All Saints’ Day in the Catholic church. As a nod to the day, and out of respect for the large Catholic community in New Orleans, team leadership asked the Archbishop Phillip Hannan of the Archdiocese of New Orleans for his input and opinion on the idea of naming the team “the Saints”, fearing that using the name might be viewed as sacrilegious. The Archbishop stated that he saw no problem with the use of the name, and it is reported that he loved the name.
He loved it so much that he wrote a team prayer. New Orleans Saints players fighting San Francisco 49ers players shirt Part of the prayer goes “…Our Heavenly Father, who has instructed us that the ‘saints by faith conquered kingdoms…and overcame lions,’ grant our Saints an increase of faith and strength so that they will not only overcome the Lions but also the Bears, the Rams, the Giants, and even those awesome people in Green Bay. The song “When the Saints Go Marching In” is also a smaller reason for the name, as it was a popular song in 1966 New Orleans, and remains one today. As New Orleans is the birthplace of Jazz, it is appropriate to tie the team and the song together.
