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

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
