Five Holy Days Of Obligations!
Question from on 07-31-2007:
My daughter is preparing for her Confirmation at Our Lady Of Angels and she has not been able to find the answer to: "What Are The Five Holy Days Of Obligations and The Dates?
Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 08-02-2007:
In the U.S., the six holy days of obligation are January 1 (Mary, Mother of Holy), Ascension (40 days after Easter), August 15 (Assumption), November 1 (All Saints), December 8 (Immaculate Conception), and December 25 (Christmas).
Unfortunately, that varies from region to region in the U.S. and depends on whether it falls on a Monday or Saturday and other rules that make it impossible for most people to keep straight.
