LAFAYETTE, La. -

Today, the faithful in Acadiana are celebrating All Saints Day.

A service was held at the Fountain Memorial Funeral Home in Lafayette.
     
It was followed by Blessing of the Graves in the cemetery.

"It was originally established to celebrate the early church borrows, those who died for their faith. And so many of the people who have died for our faith, of course, are recognized by the church as canonized saints," said Frank Cormier, Deason st St. Edmund Catholic Church.
