Frequently Asked Questions

Q. 1. What is different about celebrating Holy Mass on All Souls' Day compared to other days in the Liturgical year?

A. 1. The Feast of "All Souls' Day," celebrated on November 2 nd of the Liturgical Year, is one of a few Feasts when Catholic priests are allowed to celebrate a maximum of three Masses during a single day.

The importance of All Souls Day was made clear by Pope Benedict XV (1914-22), when he granted all priests the privilege of celebrating three Masses on All Souls' Day:

One, for the faithful departed;
One for the priest's intentions; and
One for the intentions of the Holy Father.

During the Liturgical Year, there are only a handful of other very important Feast days when priests are allowed to celebrate more than two Masses in one day.
