The holiday is also sometimes referred to as Feast of All Saints. It is a day of holy obligation for Roman Catholics in Togo, which means they are supposed to attend a special All Saints’ Day mass unless sick or otherwise unable to attend.
To understand the rationale for All Saints’ Day, you have to realise that many saints in Roman Catholicism have a special feast day on the day of their death or another date. Some don‘t, however. Some worthy to be considered saints are known only to God. And many of the saint-days are not much observed by most people. That‘s why a day to honour “all saints” was made a part of the Catholic Church‘s church calendar.
