Solemnity of All Saints
Saturday, November 1st
O Almighty God, who hast knit together thine elect in one communion and fellowship in the mystical body of thy Son Christ our Lord: Grant us grace so to follow thy blessed Saints in all virtuous and godly living, that, through their intercession, we may come to those ineffable joys which thou hast prepared for those who unfeignedly love thee; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

Because All Saints Day falls on a Saturday this year, the bishops have removed the obligation to attend Mass. However, there will be a Solemn Mass celebrated at 10:00 a.m.
