All Saints Day Services listings

News

NEW ORLEANS– Today is All Saints Day, a Holy Day of Obligation for Catholics and a day rich in local history and tradition.

All Saints Day is dedicated to the saints of the Church, that is, all those who have attained heaven, those who are formally canonized and those who are not recognized by name by the church.

 In New Orleans, and the surrounding area, there is a tradition of visiting the cemeteries to pray and pay respects to deceased loved ones and to ensure that the gravesites are cared for.

It is a practice of the Catholic Church to bless the cemeteries as we pray for the dead.
