Christ Our Hope

On November 1 the Church celebrates the Feast of All Saints

"After this I had a vision of a great multitude, which no one could count, from every nation, race, people, and tongue."  (Rev 7:9)  The Solemnity of All Saints is a Holy Day of Obligation, but since it falls on a Saturday this year, the obligation to attend Mass is abrogated.  To find your local parish and see the Mass times for November 1, visit here.
