All Saints’ Day

25th October 2017

All Saints’ Day, which falls on Wednesday 1st November this year, is one of the few holy days of obligation which is not now transferred to the Sunday. There will be two Masses on the day: 10 am, when the school will attend, and 7.30 pm, which is intended to be a convenient time for those who have to work during the daytime. Of course, in a proper country, All Saint’s Day would be a public holiday, and nobody would have to work! (It is a holiday in Belgium, France, Italy and Spain, and in many other countries.)
