All Souls Day (Catholic)
All Souls Day is a solemn celebration in the Roman Catholic Church commemorating all of those who have died and are now in Purgatory, being cleansed of their venial sins and the temporal punishments for the mortal sins that they had confessed, and being made pure before entering into the presence of God in Heaven.
Catholics often attend prayer services today at which special prayers are said or memorials given for those loved ones who have died during the previous year. Special prayers for the dead are said throughout the month of November.
