Twenty-first Sunday after Pentecost: All Saints' Day / All Faithful Departed

November 2, 2014

Although All Saints’ Day is celebrated each year on November 1, since it is one of the seven principal feast days on the church’s lectionary calendar, many Episcopal churches will celebrate All Saints’ Day today, the first Sunday in November. However, on the lectionary calendar, today, November 2, is also the Commemoration of All Faithful Departed. What is the difference between All Saints’ Day and the Commemoration of All Faithful Departed?
