Our Lady Mother Of The Saviour Rc Church

1st of November 2014

The commercial presence of Hallowe’en imposes itself on society more and more each year, such that its origin in being the eve of All Saints’ Day and thus the first of three days in the early Christian church that were known as Allhallowtide, is all but lost from view.
