1 November 2022 - Feast of All Saints - Holyday of Obligation

The Solemnity of All Saints (also known as All Hallows) is the day after Alll Hallows Eve (Hallowe'en). It is a Holyday of Obligation.

Remembering saints and martyrs and dedicating a specific day to them each year has been a Christian tradition since the 4th century AD, but it wasn't until 609AD that Pope Boniface IV decided to remember all martyrs. Originally 13th May was designated as the Feast of All Holy Martyrs. Later, in 837AD, Pope Gregory IV extended the feast o remember all the saints, changed its name to Feast of All Saints and changed the date to 1st November.

"This invites us to turn our gaze to the immense multitude of those who have already reached the blessed land, and points us on the path that will lead us to that destination"

Pope St. John Paul II,

All Saints' Day 2003
