Parishes celebrate feasts of All Saints, All Souls

Across the Archdiocese of Baltimore, parishes will mark All Saints’ Day Nov. 1 and Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls’ Day), Nov. 2.

The church celebrates All Saints’ Day to honor men and women who have died and now enjoy life in heaven with the Lord.

The feast gives members of the Catholic community an opportunity to venerate the saints, to pray to them in a special way for assistance with life’s troubles, to learn about their lives of Christian witness and follow their examples of faith.

According to the Dictionary of the Liturgy, All Souls Day is a commemoration of all the faithful departed.
