Lesson Overview

The Solemnity of All Saints, or All Saints Day, began in the early part of the first millennium as a number of different practices that honored the lives of the martyrs, or those who died for the faith. Eventually the practice of honoring the martyrs expanded to include all of the saints. The official Solemnity, or highest feast day, as celebrated today was set in the liturgical calendar on November 1st all the way back in the 9th century.

In this lesson, students will learn about sainthood and how to look to the saints of Heaven as examples of holiness.
