All Souls' Day

All Souls’ Day is a holy day to honour the dead. This day is primarily celebrated in the Catholic Church but is also celebrated in the Eastern Orthodox Church and a few other denominations of Christianity. While most protestant denominations do not recognise this celebration and disagree with the theology behind it, the Anglican Church is the largest protestant church to celebrate the holy day. The Catholics believe that the soul of a person who dies can go to one of the three places- heaven, hell or purgatory. Catholics believe that through the prayers of the faithful on Earth, the dead are cleansed on their sins so they may enter into heaven.
