Every year the Church recalls the example, witness, and prayer of the holy women and men who have been identified by the Church as saints. These saints are more than just role models; they are family members with whom we continue to share unity, in a bond of prayer, called the Communion of Saints.
All Saints Day is celebrated on November 1.
All Souls Day is celebrated on November 2.
The following activities can extend the All Saints Day and All Souls Day sessions in the Finding God: Our Response to God's Gifts program. They are additional options offered to enhance your sessions and allow you to meet the specific needs or interests of your group.
