ALL SAINTS / ALL SOULS

Our modern Church Calendar makes special Holydays move to the Sunday, when they fall on a Saturday or Monday as well. So this year ALL SAINTS (usually 1st November) will be our Sunday celebration next weekend. (Since Sundays are held to begin on the Saturday evening for purposes of worship, ALL SAINTS begins then). ALL SOULS, a day of prayer for all the faithful departed, takes place on Monday. In some parishes people like to place names of their departed family/friends in an envelope, and these are left then by the altar throughout November. These envelopes can be put in the collection bag or handed in to the priest directly.
