Solemnity of All Saints and Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed - Fiestas de todos los santos y conmemoración de todos los fieles difuntos

This week on November 1, we celebrate the Feast of All Saints. We recognize not only all canonized saints on this day, but also the triumphant church of the resurrection. In the life of the Church, a solemnity begins on the eve of the previous day, with a prayerful watch, a vigil.

Why do we have to attend Mass each Sunday?

Is missing Mass a mortal sin?

In addition to Sunday, the days to be observed as holy days of obligation in the Latin Rite dioceses of the United States of America, in conformity with canon 1246, are as follows:

January 1, the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God*;
Thursday of the Sixth Week of Easter, the solemnity of the Ascension**;
August 15, the solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary*;
November 1, the solemnity of All Saints;
December 8, the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception;
December 25, the solemnity of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

*Whenever January 1, the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, or August 15, the solemnity of the Assumption, or November 1, the solemnity of All Saints, falls on a Saturday or on a Monday, the precept to attend Mass is abrogated.

**Observance of the Feast of the Ascension is transferred to the Seventh Sunday of Easter.

What's the difference between a solemnity, a feast day and a memorial?
