All Saints’ Day is also called All Hallow’s Day, Feast of All Saints and the Solemnity of All Saints. It is celebrated by my most Christian faiths but a various times and with various objectives.
The Roman Catholic Church uses the day to honor those who are saints, known and unknown. The Protestant faith celebrates that we are all saints, in that all of us who follow Christ have a personal relationship with God.
Protestants also take this time to remember those of the local congregation who have died during the last year or to remember someone who has been instrumental or inspirational in our lives.
All Saint’s Day is celebrated on November 1 in most western churches and on the first Friday following Easter in the eastern orthodox churches.
Whatever the religious affiliation the day is a time of peace, prayer and reflection mixed with a dash of thankfulness because all believers know that God loves and takes care of them.
