All Saints’ Day is a solemn holy day of the Catholic Church celebrated each year on November 1. The day is dedicated to the saints of the Church, that is, all those who have attained heaven. It should not be confused with All Souls’ Day, which is observed on November 2, and is dedicated to those who have died and not yet reached heaven.
Comme son nom l’indique, la Toussaint est la fête de tous les saints. Chaque 1er novembre, l’Église honore ainsi la foule innombrable de ceux et celles qui ont été de vivants et lumineux témoins du Christ.
