Holy Days of Obligation

In 2022 the following Holy Days of Obligation will be observed:

  • Tuesday, November 1 (Solemnity of All Saints)
  • Wednesday, December 8 (Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Please note: The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God (Saturday, January 1), and the Solemnity of the Assumption (Monday, August 15) will not be observed as days of obligation (precept) in 2022. In keeping with the 1991 decision of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and confirmed by the Holy See, when certain holy days occur on a Monday or a Saturday, the obligation is dispensed from in the Dioceses of the United States.]

Also, please note that in 2022, the Solemnity of the Nativity of Our Lord (Christmas) will occur on Sunday, December 25. Pastors will want to determine how this will affect the parish’s normal Mass schedule for Sundays (the Lord’s Day).
