The first Sunday of November each year is the celebration of All Saints' Day. Here is a brief description from the website Anglican Compass:
"As a principal feast day, many Anglican churches will celebrate a full eucharistic liturgy on All Saints’ day. It is also common to have Baptisms on All Saints’ Day (or the Sunday after Nov. 1).
Often, a Liturgy of the Saints will be included to call to mind and give thanks for specific saints, historical and modern.
Symbolizing the shining robes of the martyrs, the liturgical color for All Saints is white.
For personal or family celebration, it’s an excellent time to learn about a saint you might not be familiar with, to study the written prayers of saints from church history, and to specifically thank God for the work of those who were instrumental in leading you and others into a profession of faith.
It is an excellent time to remember that 'mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won' and the continuing work of the Holy Spirit in building up 'one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church'!"
