Holy Day of Obligation- All Saints Day

November 1, 2016 @ 7:00 pm


Masses will be: 7 am in the Chapel and 7 pm in the Church. It is a Holy Day of Obligation  meaning all Catholics are required to attend Mass on that day, unless they have an excellent excuse, such as serious illness.

All Saints’ Day is a solemn holy day of the Catholic Church celebrated annually on November 1. The day is dedicated to the saints of the Church, that is, all those who have attained heaven. It should not be confused with All Souls’ Day, which is observed on November 2, and is dedicated to those who have died and not yet reached heaven.

Although millions, or even billions of people may already be saints, All Saints’ Day observances tend to focus on known saints –that is those recognized in the canon of the saints by the Catholic Church.
