All Souls Day

This day commemorates of the souls of all Christians who have died (Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed in Latin: Commemoratio omnium fidelium defunctorum). This is celebrated mostly in the Catholic Church. It is held annually on November 2.

Angelicans see this day as an extension from All Saints’ Day.

This day follows All Saints’ Day on November 2 and is a solemn celebration in the Catholic Church that commemorates those who have died and are now waiting in Purgatory. Sometimes referred to as the Feast of All Souls. The idea is not just to remember the dead, but to utilize prayer to help the sins of the deceased be forgiven so they can be released from Purgatory and eventually welcomed into God’s presence in heaven. The key distinction between All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day is one day is for commemorating known saints and the deceased who have reached heaven, and the other is for honoring those who have not yet reached heaven.

This day coincides with the Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. This multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died and to support their spiritual journey.
