All Saints Day
All Saints' Day
Friday, November 1st
(Holy Day of Obligation)
Masses are at 12:05 and 5:00 p.m. in the St. Joseph Chapel
"The church in this great festival honors all the saints reigning together in glory; first, to give thanks to God for the graces and crowns of all his elect: secondly, to excite ourselves to a fervent imitation of their virtues by considering the holy example of so many faithful servants of God of all ages, sexes, and conditions, and by contemplating the inexpressible and eternal bliss which they already enjoy, and to which we are invited: thirdly, to implore the divine mercy through this multitude of powerful intercessors: fourthly, to repair any failures or sloth in not having duly honored God in his saints on their particular festivals, and to glorify him in the saints which are unknown to us, or for which no particular festivals are appointed."
