All Saints / All Souls Day

November 1 - 2, 2011

Christian day for honoring saints both known and unknown. A saint is a person has lived a life devoted to God and living a life of holiness. Some saints are people who were martyred for their faith. This day in the Roman Catholic Church saints are remembered and celebrated for the lives they lived.

Christian day where those who have died are remembered and prayers of intercession are said for the dead. Visitation to the place of burial is often part of the tradition.
