(This year, the Ascension will be celebrated on Sunday, May 28, 2017). The other holy days of obligation are: Tuesday, November 1, 2016 All Saints Thursday, December 8, 2016 The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary Tuesday, August 15, 2017 The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary CHRISTMAS VIGIL MASSES: May not be celebrated earlier than 4:00 pm on December 24. This is a policy of the Archdiocese that was enacted in For more information go to go to the Resources tab, click on Policies and scroll down to the document titled Christmas Eve Times for Vigil Masses. THE EASTER VIGIL: The first Mass of Easter, the Easter Vigil, is celebrated between nightfall on Holy Saturday, April 15, 2017 and daybreak of Easter Sunday, April 16. The General Norms for the Liturgical Year and the Calendar, no 21, states: The Easter vigil, during the holy night when Christ rose from the dead, ranks as the mother of all vigils. Keeping watch, the church awaits Christ s resurrection and celebrated it in the sacraments. Accordingly, the entire celebration of this vigil should take place at night, that is, it should either begin after nightfall or end before the dawn of Sunday. Individual parishes can check the following website to determine the time of nightfall on Saturday, April 15, 2017: click on the USNO icon on the left of the page click Astronomical Applications click Data Service and go to Complete Sun and Moon Data for one day. On this website, nightfall is listed as end of civil twilight which is at 8:30pm on April 15, RITUAL MASSES: Ritual Masses are prohibited on the Sundays of Advent, Lent and the Easter season, on all solemnities including the days within the octave of Easter, on the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls), on Ash Wednesday, and during Holy Week. In addition, the norms in the ritual books or in the Masses themselves also apply (General Instruction of the Roman Missal (2011), no. 352ff). Order of Matrimony Weekend wedding Masses are normally to be celebrated prior to any Saturday evening Masses of anticipation. For exceptional Saturday night or Sunday wedding Masses, consult the Missal for the appropriate prayers and readings. (Ritual Masses, IV, I)

3 Page 3 If the marriage is celebrated on a Sunday or solemnity, the Mass of the day is used with the nuptial blessing and the special final blessing according to the circumstances. When the wedding Mass may not be held, one of the readings from the texts provided for the marriage celebration (nos ) may be chosen, except from Holy Thursday to Easter, on the solemnities of Epiphany, Ascension, Pentecost, or the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, or on holy days of obligation. However, the Rite of Marriage outside Mass may be celebrated on the above days except during the Easter Triduum. On the Sundays of the Christmas season and in Ordinary Time, the entire Wedding Mass may be used in Masses that are not parish Masses. When a marriage is celebrated during Advent or Lent or other days of Penance, the special nature of these liturgical seasons are to be considered (Rite of Marriage, no 11). FUNERAL MASSES: Funeral Masses are not permitted on solemnities that are holy days of obligation, Holy Thursday, the Easter Triduum, and the Sundays of Advent, Lent and the Easter season (General Instruction of the Roman Missal, no. 380).
