All Saints Day

All Saints Day is when the Church commemorates all the known and unknown followers of Christ who have gone before us.. The eve of All Saints is known as All Hallows Eve, or Halloween. All Saints Day is November 1. Remembering saints and martyrs and dedicating a specific day to them each year has been a Christian tradition since the 4th century AD. It is a time to acknoledge those who are now part of the great cloud of wittnesses who along with the host of heaven cheer us on and encourage us to live faithfull lives.

Hebrews 12:1-2, 22-23
