All Saints Day
"The intercession of the saints: Being more closely united to Christ, those who dwell in heaven fix the whole Church more firmly in holiness. . . . They do not cease to intercede with the Father for us, as they proffer the merits which they acquired on earth through the one mediator between God and men, Christ Jesus . . . . So by their fraternal concern is our weakness greatly helped."
Catechism of the Catholic Church
Holy Day of Obligation: The Feast of All Saints • Sunday, November 1, 2020 • Mass 7:30am, 9:00am, 11:00am, 5:00pm
All Saints Day commemorates all those who have attained the beatific vision in Heaven. This feast day is a Holy Day in which all the faithful are obliged to attend Mass. It is our belief that there is a prayerful spiritual communion between those in the state of grace who have died, and those who are living. We worship God in gratitude for the lives and deaths of His saints. All saints are honored, included obscure and lesser known saints, in addition to individuals who have personally led one to faith in Jesus, such as one's grandmother or friend.
The current date of November 1st for the feast of All Saints, can be traced to our patron Saint, Pope Gregory III. All Saints Day differs from All Souls Day in that All Saints are already in heaven.
