Holy Days of Obligation.

In the Catholic Church, Holy Days of Obligation or Holidays of Obligation, less commonly called Feasts of Precept, are the days on which, as canon 1247 of the Code of Canon Law states,

“On Sundays and other holy days of obligation, the faithful are obliged to participate in the Mass. Moreover they are to abstain from those works and affairs which hinder the worship to be rendered to God, the joy proper to the Lord’s day, or the suitable relaxation of mind and body. “

From the 1st Sunday of Advent 2006 the Holy days of Obligations for England and Wales changed. They are:

  • All Saints (1 November)
  • Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (15 August)
  • St Peter & St Paul (29 June)
  • Birth of the Lord (25 December)
  • Every Sunday

The following Holy Days of Obligation have been transferred to the nearest Sunday:

  • Epiphany of the Lord
  • Ascension of the Lord
  • Body and Blood of the Lord

Mass times on Holy Days of Obligation are in the school at 9.30am (open to all parishioners) during term time, and in the church at 12noon.
