All Souls Day is a holy day set aside for honoring the dead. In countries with a Christian tradition, it is customary during this day or period to visit the graveyard and family grave to light a candle or to lay living flowers on it to symbolize the belief in eternal life and to demonstrate the belief that life does not end with a grave. On All Souls Day, we not only remember the dead, but we apply our efforts, through prayer, almsgiving, and the Mass, to their release from Purgatory. The celebration of All Souls' Day is on 2 November and follows All Saints' Day.

Dušičky (All Souls' Day) - the memory of all the deceased. On this day we devote the memory to our deceased loved ones. Join us and light the candles in the Forest cemetery for all you loved and for the souls of all good people who have passed away. Let yourself be carried away by the atmosphere of a luminescent cemetery. We will meet on 2nd of November, at 6 pm in front of Palach dorms. Together we go to the Forest cemetery to light the candles in the memory of the deceased.
