EWTN Catholic Q&A
celebrating halloween
Question from BARBARA C BERGERON on 10-30-2007:

what does the catholic church teach about celebrating halloween? I see some pastors celebrate halloween for children with masses or get togethers - some priest teach that halloween is a holiday of saton.

Please advise.

Thanks - Barbara C. Bergeron

Answer by Fr. Robert J. Levis on 10-31-2007:

Barbara. The position of the Church is to celebrate the Saints and to imitate them. All the other nonsense surrounding this Feast is just plain rubbish. Fr. Bob Levis
