All Souls Day

 A Day of the Dead Altar in Mexico
ALL SOULS DAY is the day the Church commemorates and prays for the holy souls in Purgatory, who are undergoing purification before entering Heaven.  All Souls Day is November 2nd, the day after All Saints Day.

Many people visit cemeteries and decorate the graves of their loved ones. The living can help these souls on their journey with prayer, sacrifice, and special Masses.
