All Souls Day
All Soul's Day (sometimes called the 'Day of the Dead') is on November 2 and is a day of remembrance for friends and loved ones who have passed away.
The day purposely follows All Saint's Day in order to shift the focus from those in heaven to those in purgatory. It is celebrated with masses and festivities in honor of the dead. While the Feast of All Saints is a day to remember the glories of Heaven and those there, the Feast of All Souls reminds us of our obligations to live holy lives and that there will be purification of the souls of those destined for Heaven.
