All Saints Day

November 1, 2015

A Holy Day of Obligation, All Saints Day is the day on which Catholics celebrate all the saints, known and unknown.  It arose out of the Christian tradition of celebrating the martyrdom of saints on the anniversary of their martyrdom. When martyrdoms increased during the persecutions of the late Roman Empire, local dioceses instituted a common feast day in order to ensure that all martyrs, known and unknown, were properly honored.
